Daily updated training info + stuff #AKtraining

03 April 2017

One of my strengths is my willingness to push things, which is also one of my major weakness’. Last week I had this aim of running a sub 25 minute 10km, which I did at 24:44. And so today I was like, “let’s see if I can get it down to 24”, which as anyone can tell is a stupid thing to think, that in running you’re looking at seconds not minutes of improvement. So today I tried running 12.2 kph, thinking I’d push my time down a bit (I didn’t think I could run a sub 24 yet!). I managed this pace until 3.60km, but that was all, and had to go down to 12km, then 11km, as I felt shattered, finishing at 25:01, which was funny as this would have been good last week, but not this week! I guess I need to go back to switching speeds until I get comfortable at that pace.

The Day's Training

  • Run 5km 25:01
  • Bench Press 70kg 4x4
  • Bench wide 60kg 5x5
  • Squat 80kg 5x5
  • Clean and press 50kg 5x5
  • 30 Pull ups

Note:These numbers don't include warm up, which tend to be done at 25%, 50% and 75% of final weigh.

Notes

It’s funny, but I was so tired this weekend, sleeping late on Sat and Sunday, as well as falling asleep on Sunday afternoon, I take that as a sign that I’ve been having a lot of early starts, lots of training, so it’s a good thing to catch up.
