Yesterday was the most perfect day.
Alarm went off at 6.30 am – up and out the hotel room by 7am. 1 hr and 5 mins run – all nice and easy but turned out to be half marathon pace and covered just over 11K.
One of those runs where you can just keep going and have to stop yourself from doing too much. Had plenty of water on my so no problems there.
Showered, washed my kit, breakfast and then twisting by the pool for the day. No chores, no business just chillaxing. Then 4.30 pm to 5.30 pm I did one hours weights in the hotel gym. Weights and core.
Then a one hour Egyptian massage, and what a great massage it was. The masseuse pulled back the towel, looked at my legs and says ‘oh you do Sport Sir’. I said to the wife after ‘I suppose it was because my legs were shaved’ and she said ‘no it’s cos they are so defined’. Nice! She also gave a really good massage. Noticed tightness in my calves and worked on them more and also in my shoulders and avoided my bruised leg and arm from the desert crash.
Then a meal of Nanchos to start, Beef fajitas (the wife had chicken so we did swopsis) and Chocolate brownies and ice cream for dessert. A stroll around Naama Bay to work off the food and then an early night!
What a day.
I set the alarm for 6.30am again today, but decided against the run as was a bit tired and we fly back today getting into Gatwick at gone 1am – so it would have been a long day.
So a total of 6 hours training this week. Not good as I wanted to do more, but not bad as I had no access to a bike as I thought and there was a lot of chores to do while here.
Onwards to next week.
