Wait, is this week 3 or 4? It seems to be going so quickly!
Monday– 30 min weights workout at the Grand Hyatt KL gym.
Tuesday– Banging headache so swapped my speedwork in favour of a swim & smoothie by the pool!
Wednesday– 5 X 800m on the treadmill at 6.30 pace. This just about killed me, and was the first time I’ve ever worn the emergency cord on a treadmill, such was my fear of flying off the back!
Thursday– Barre class at Barrecore
Friday– With big plans for the weekend, I knew it was crucial to get my long run done before the wedding festivities started. I combined my morning commute with my long run, running from Chiswick to London Bridge (with an extra lap of Hyde Park) to get my 12 miles in. My goal pace was 9min miles, some felt easy, some were exceptionally hard and I finished the run with a 9.16 average pace. Not ideal.
I’m finding my loss of fitness and pace so difficult to deal with, and am just hoping I can work hard enough over the next few months to regain all that I’ve lost.
Saturday– Spent the morning stressing over wedding cakes and the afternoon celebrating as two of my best friends got married! It was so much fun catching up with friends from school, enjoying the sunshine and dancing the night away to some classic tunes. I literally ran onto the dance floor for the Spice Girls!
Sunday– Less than ideal journey that took 5 hours, including two road closures and a Burger King #keepingitreal
And with that, we start WEEK 5!
