Training diary: week 5

Strange week. I started the week in Carcassonne recovering from a wedding and doing a little swimming. Once back in London, I went out for a long run, only to feel a knee strain after an hour and struggle through to 1h30. I dropped the run on Weds, but could still feel the achey pain during Thursday’s hour steady and – slightly – during Saturday’s brick. I was meant to be cycling the Woodcote sportive on Sunday but a broken spoke prevented this…, just to add to the week’s frustration. Going to put this week behind me and make sure week 6 is a quality one.

Week 5 (w/c Sunday 9th August)

Sun: REST; Mon: SWIM (40mins, Carcassonne); Tue: RUN (1h30, steady); Wed: SWIM (3.25k, Clissold Leisure Centre); Thu: RUN (1hr, steady); GYM (10mins skipping + 2 x static weights/core exercise set) Fri: SWIM (1hr, drills + 50m reps); Sat: BRICK (1h10 bike, 25min run)
