Another week done and dusted. This week was ok/ It started with a race and then a CV interval session and another race.
Mon : Race – 10k in 42.14
Tues : Easy 7 miles
Weds : Easy 8
Thurs : 3 x 1km, 4 x 200m on the track with 200mrec. Kept this a shorter session as a race on Sunday and this worked well last week.
Fri: 7 miles easy
Sun: County XC
Overall this was a good week. It ended on a good and bad race though. My aim for the race was to beat last year’s time, which I did by about 20 seconds. So I am happy with that. Sadly my asthma played up, so I feel this could have been a better outcome.
I have been very fortunate my asthma has been in complete control over the last few months. Taking my inhaler before with spacer – this time, it didn’t seem as though I got it in my lungs. I should have really opted for another puff but didn’t, which potentially was the downfall. Despite it though I pushed through and am happy I didn’t cave.
Decided to not do strength this week. with 2 races but will certainly be doing it this week.
Next real target is a 10k mid Feb, so training will be for that. Will be doing some xc races before then but will consider them training rather than taper for them.
