this week I’ve officially started on a 20 week program, leading up to the Perth marathon in June. It’s actually an 18 and a half week program now, due to there only being 18 and a half weeks to go before June 16th.
the change of program comes at a good time – it gives me a couple of “rest” (i.e. non-training) days, and a couple of shorter weights sessions. both these things will help me grab a little more sleep, aiding recovery and relieving a developing issue of tiredness/burnout.
the change also freshens things up – part of the problem is probably a slight degree of boredom. I’m sure my body will appreciate being stretched and pushed in slightly different ways too.
above all else, the fact that I’m now in marathon coundown mode is simultaneously motivating, exciting and scary…
N.B. I’ve not blogged the Sunday or Monday sessions. Tuesday I didn’t get to the gym. The gym section below will include details of the missing sessions…
Oh and I’m now on my third gym notebook (in case you’re interested, which I doubt you are LOL)
