11/10/12 - Swim Session
Its been ages since I've done a training session in the pool, so I was looking forward to it. As we were away I managed to find a pool close to the outlaws house which was pretty easy to get to and it was clean!
The session was a late one 9pm till 10pm, so I was going to be up all night after the workout so late as I'm not a fan of training after 8pm as it takes so long for my body to shut down.
It was the first session from the internal combustion of the off road race on the weekend, I was now back walking properly so I was ready to get back out training.
I decided to keep the session simple and do a basic pyramid, it was a tough one but I really enjoyed and definitely felt it in the shoulders. Once we have sorted out our house move I'll be looking to joint the sports centre with a pool
The pyramid was:
100, 200, 300, 400, 400, 300, 200, 100 = 2000 meters
Duration 01 00 00

14/10/12 - Free Run (Lamphey Loop x2)
This is probably going to be my last run before the half marathon next week as I dont think I have that much time spare at the moment since the move and I'm still sorting out stuff from our house. It will also give my legs a chance to recover from any tiredness they may have since the endurance life race, because they were really hurting since that race.
Back to night run, It was going to be the first dark run, and it was a chance to try out my new head torch and it was raining so visibility wasn't he best. It was pitch black, no street lights down here so it did get a little bit scary in places where the trees moved like people and the odd horse would make his presence know by sticking his head over a gate which scared me as I wasn't expecting it, Its normally chavs I see on my old routes.
Roll on the next half marathon!
