I’m having a bit of a change to my running training.
Rather than see Adam for crack of dawn training sessions on Sundays in the park, I’m going to do strength and conditioning training with him in the gym on a weekday evening instead. I know, the gym, but that’s where the weights are. He can’t get it all in the back of the car.
Strength and conditioning – makes me sound like a show pony doesn’t it 😉
The plan is to build my body strength to make my running more efficient. It also means I can do long runs at the weekend and not try to push them into a weekday evening.
I’ve been having a long think about the Manchester 10k. It just wasn’t quite what I expected but that doesn’t mean I’m going to give up on racing, just maybe look for a different kind of race and accept the big ones for what they are – entertainment fundraisers. Doesn’t mean I’m not going to do them, but I am going to do them differently.
Anyway, first session of strength training with Adam, tomorrow after work, I’ll let you know how I get on.
I’ve got half an eye on a half marathon in the Autumn, but shhh… Secret just now.
