Day 3 week 5

I cleared the above. It wasn't easy. I had to repeat the last level and therefore did 25 extra. This is not really a taper. I felt muscles in my elbow start to spasm when I was doing the last set and was drained after 25 push ups. So I waited for a few minutes and did the 40. That last set, level 8 is quite a struggle.
It was 18x2 + 16x2 + 14x2 + 12 + 40 + 25 = 173 pushups.
I also focused on my compartment muscles today. Did seated calf raises and the heel/toe walks. Just trying to take it easy and prepare for tomorrows long run. I think I will do the exhaustion test on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Enjoy the weekend.
