4k fast training run

4k fast training run

Following a fairly hard gym workout Monday evening (and a decent weekend’s cardio training – see previous posts), I decided on a quick post-work run aimed at a slightly shorter distance but at much faster pace. Below is my garmin data from today’s run courtesy of Strava: I was quite pleased to manage the full 4k and only just off my target pace of 4:48m/km. If you view the full data you’ll see there is a bit of a climb…

Today’s Shoulder Workout

Today’s Shoulder Workout

Been 4 weeks since coming back from LA and the training’s now back in full flow. Although a lot of strength/size was lost training for the Waveney Valley Super-Sprint Triathlon back in May, I’ve put about 6lbs of mass since then most of which is lean muscle.
