Week 11: Stretch & Recovery
1 x 12km walk
1 x Interval Training (30 mins) Pick from stairs, hills, bike, soft sand or high intensity interval training in a gym
1 x Trek Training (2-3hrs with a 3-8kg pack) long walk, speedy pace, incorporating as many hills/stairs and undulating terrain as you can
2 x Relaxation & Injury prevention: Stretch – see this week’s video; swim or yoga
Once again this week, I followed my own training program to protect my knee. I did one 20k walk and two 10k walks. I didn’t do the interval training as I’ve been staying away from stairs and hills. Just hoping that on the day the knee can cope with any stairs we or climbs we come across. I’m confident that all will be ok. And as usual there were my gym sessions.
There is no training program from Coastrek for Week 12. I plan to keep walking most days, but no more than 10k.
Feeling quite excited now as we only have 11 more sleeps until event day.
Just a reminder that Coastrek Melbourne, is a fundraiser for the Fred Hollows foundation.
From the website: “We see a world in which no person is needlessly blind and Indigenous Australians exercise their right to good health”
