This week is supposed to be my easy week after the Huntly half on the weekend but instead I have used it as an opportunity to get back in the gym and get some weight stuff done. have only been for one 10km run so far this week and have enjoyed the change in training pace.
Did a great chest and bicep work out last night and this morning was up early and back to the gym for an interval session on the stationery bike. Last night I got through some bench press work, dumbbell fly, cable cross overs/presses/squeezes and some good old fashioned dumbell bicep curls. Chest is feeling sore, biceps are tired, legs are still sore from the squat session on Tuesday...and I am absolutely loving it.
Will be great to see if the benefits of cross training become apparent for the next half which is booked for July and is an off road event in pituresque Taupo.
