Monday

Recovery run 30 - 60 mins

Should be a very light run after you LSD on the Sunday previous. Start ever so slow, don't go too hard, just get your body moving to aid recovery and prepare for the week ahead.

Hot tip: Skip this session if you're too sore.

Go deep early and try to hang on. That's a whole new skill set.

Strength and Stretching...

Strength

Try this Abs/Core/Obliques strength routine after each of the workouts this week. On the video, each exercise goes for 30 seconds (real time) but you can alter this to suit. 

*Remember, posture is more important than time, once you begin to lose control, stop the exercise and rest. 

Stretch

Stretching ideas for this week. You can add/alter the routine. 

Do 3 sets.

Maintain composure. 

Breath slowly.
