Training log - 08.07 - 14.07

Quite a quiet week spent recovering from the Rhodes Run although my legs felt surprisingly strong the next day so I possibly could have done more. I am feeling inspired after Rhodes to get both stronger and faster so my training sessions are going to be a lot more focussed on building strength through CrossFit and more interval training.

Monday - Rest - waking up at 4am to fly back from JHB and then go to work was a lot more exhausting than the actual run I went there for.

Tuesday - CrossFit

6 x Cindy AFAP (As Fast As Possible) - Result 6m10

5 Pull-ups    (black band)
10 Pushups
15 Squats

A gentle run around the trails of Lion's Head. A nice warm-down after the weekend.

Friday - Run - Newlands Forest

A good trip up to the contour path (still trying to find the best way to get up there without getting lost). I took it nice and slow stopping to take a few pics. Then my 3rd, and finally successful, attempt of trying to find the King's Blockhouse and then a solid fast route down to work on my downhill speed.

Saturday - Rest - although the Sharks performance against the Kings got by heart rate up
