Been doing the hiit on the treadmill and the rower, some swimming and general walking about, but no fartlek or big sessions since November.
So Sunday was the day and I really had to force myself to do it. Decided to go somewhere new and climb the hill to the castle on top, which I have never been able to do in the 22 years I have lived in Wales.
So I walked the mile up to the castle, mooched around a bit, walked back down, then for a quick spin on the beach and home. Woke up really achy this morning.
Gym after work and did a hiit with gradients on the treadmill, sustained 5 minutes at 10% gradient at 4.2 kmh, then down to 4% for a bit and back up to 8% to finish – ouch. So, being a fool I jumped on the rowing machine and did a solid 15 minutes of rowing until my legs were screaming.
So now I am sitting here ouching and dreading tomorrow – but I had a lovely day, peaceful and exciting at the same time.
