150 squats done as part of the Tribesports 30 day squat challenge. Time for a cup of tea and an appointment with my foam roller!
Runners do need to be optimistic. Continue reading
Week seven of Couch to 5K has gone well, despite a combination of work commitments and feeling a bit tired this week. A couple of times I had to force myself out of the door after a long day at work, its been worth it though as there is no better stress buster than going for a run! The warm(ish) weather didn’t last long, so it was back to doing my run and cool down in the rain, I love it.
So I’ve nearly finished C25K and my thoughts are what to do next? My next goal is to run 10k again and get back to my best PB of 1:03. The time isn’t really important though, its just another number to aim for.
I’m also half way through the 30 day squat challenge and I’m
being beginning to feel that my legs are stronger for it. The foam roller is also getting plenty of use too, I don’t think I could do my runs and squats without it.
I’ve had a few questions about the foam roller and its use recently, so I’ll be writing a post on it once I get June out of the way.
How is your training going so far this year?

I got home from work late, so after a quick change I headed out for tonight’s run. To be honest I didn’t feel like it. I was tired and my head was still full of work stuff, you know how it is.
The run went ok, 3.2 miles in 34 minutes and I’d forgotten all about work by the time arrived back home. After a cool down in the rain (the decent weather never lasts here), I did my 130 squats then a short foam rolling session, my legs felt like they were going to drop off, I’ll feel it tomorrow!
