Monday 18th - 30 mins easy and stretch
This was the night of an England match so there was a bit of manoeuvring to be done: I drove to the pub next to Mr B's work, sat there for a bit and fed MiniB, Mr B arrived after work and looked after MiniB at the pub while I went for a run, then I took MiniB home while Mr B watched the match. Phew! As far as running was concerned, this genuinely felt easy. I think by the time it gets to Monday evening I'm just so desperate to run, even if it was hot.

Wednesday 20th -Swim // 20 - 30 minutes Conditioning Work
DID SWISS BALL... ARGH! Couldn't even do the single leg glute bridge properly. Need to keep doing this - clearly I have no core
Thursday 21st - 10 minutes Warm Up, 7 x 3 minutes at Threshold effort with a 60 second recovery, 10 minutes Cool Down
Wow, that was a shocker. I had to count backwards from 60x3 for each rep to get myself through it. I was definitely there as far as effort level was concerned but this was a proper grind. I nearly stopped! Not sure if it was being on my feet loads the day before with Mini B, slow recovery from Tuesday, or not enough carbs the night before, or doing unfuelled sessions again when I'm not used to it. Will see how next week pans out. My face says it all..... Ugh.
