Last Saturday marked the final time for me at the stairs at Castor Bay for the year. The next couple of months become more specific we will be spending more time at the track. I love the feeling of being absolutely buggered and pushing yourself to your limits. These stairs do this for me. It's an awesome session and the last two weeks we have upped the intensity running with a weighted vest. We have been running down the stairs too which is all about increasing the eccentric load on our body. Lots of hurt but great.
Mentally it is refreshing having less time at the track in recovery weeks. It has also been perfect timing with my university exams starting on Friday. I've been a boring geek the last couple of days but I do enjoy the stimulation and challenge.
