shivering…

It is so cold here we recorded –17 degrees here in Crosby last night. My kitchen thermometer is reading 2 degrees so I don’t want to go in there at the moment. Had a little read of the BUPA 5k programme last night and it is something I would like to try before I decide on the Liverpool triathlon. I think I am going to try it starting before the new year. I want to get the Christmas weekend out of the way and then detox from all the crap I have been eating for a few week which will give me time to plan my lunch menus for the first two weeks of January.

The first 8 weeks of the BUPA 5k is looking like this (I plan on starting this training w/c 27th December)

falling into the trap of doing too much is not the aim so I am just going to concentrate on the running and see if I can sustain it for a week see if I like it and if I can actually do it.   I am going to continue with my gym sessions and will record it with my Polar HRM. I would like to buy some new running shoes if I take to it. I need to make sure I am stretching enough before I start to avoid shin splints.
