well overall I think my revised weekend schedule worked out OK. all training has been done, I had a full day of recovery yesterday, and was good to go for the gym this morning.
mind you, this morning’s session intense. despite this technically being week 3 of the 20 week program, this is actually the first full week, and the first time I’ve done the new weights & rowing sessions. the session itself lasted just over an hour, including the warm-up, stretching, time between different actvities etc. however, it was a solid workout that left me tired and sweaty, and in need of very short rests along the way. intense is definitely the word.
i think the effects of partying all day saturday played a part, but it was definitely more intense than, say, a long run. those sessions go on longer, but there’s a sense of pacing yourself, and staying relatively comfortable the whole way.
today’s session was all about bursts of energy, focused effort – and I actually enjoyed it, once I’d recovered lol.
a little note on the times below – having napped a little on sunday, I woke up just in time to see the second half of the man utd game. I headed down the gym after that game ended…
p.s. talking of times – the 1000m time was a personal best…
