Training Log

7 September 2015

This week was a struggle. A real struggle. I was just plagued with achey legs the whole week, and along with a difficult week at work, I was physically and emotionally drained. On Friday, I had a stretching and gait session with the lovely Ben at my gym, and I was shattered before I got there. I'm not a quitter and you will never hear me say that I can't do something in the gym, but I was so weak in this session. I felt awful, but Ben said that I was doing better than a lot of his clients so it shows that determination can get you through anything. I'm going to invest in some new running trainers too. I'm thinking Asics - if you have any recommendations, please do let me know before I part with my cash!

It's now less than 2 weeks until Spartan and 4 weeks until the half marathon. Aroo!

Above: Lift a medicine ball above your head and slam it to the ground. Pick it up, and do it again. 20 reps in total. Then go straight into 20 squat jumps. Try 5 rounds and see how you go. If throwing the medicine ball down is too easy, go for a heavier weight. I usually use 7kg.
