Silverstone Half-Marathon 2014 training : Week 4

Week 4, and my training is going to be in the Lake District…

Monday 23 December 2013

I did my squats as soon as I woke up and they went very well, but I did not do my plank, thinking I would do it later.  I also thought we would go for a walk on our way to our cottage in the Lake District but the terrible rainy weather stopped that happening, and I did not get round to doing my plank.

  1. Squats – 220

I woke up and went for a walk around Little Town because the strong winds were stopping me from doing my planned walk.  The scenery is stunning – just think of the Lord Of The Rings.

You can read about that walk here and see more of the photos from that walk here.  In the afternoon I went for a much longer walk which could have had dire consequences, and you can read more about that walk here and see more of the photos from that walk here.

We drove from the Lake District to Derby and the journey took 6 hours, so I was not in the mood for doing any exercise by the time we arrived.  We went to the cinema instead, to see the second film in the Hunger Games trilogy.

As we were in Derby I decided to talk a walk on Kinder Scout, which you can read about here, and you can see more photos from the walk here.

Positives from this week – I kept it going with the squats and put in a couple of strenuous walks, so I am ready to get back to the running training in the New Year.
