Last week, I decided to get my running shoes no and start training. I ended up tweaking a Couch to 5K workout… which is my go to running plan when I’ve taken time off. It just works.
Scheduled: 5 min walk/warm up, then 8x 1min run, 90sec recover. Then a cool down.
I decided to take those 1 minutes runs and turn them into sprints! I went as fast as I could go for a few of those and then “pretty fast” for most. My paces ranged from 7-8-9min/mile which is a great target for my sprints.
If only I could sustain such a pace! LOL!
Hubby and I hit up Crossfit Tuesday and Thursday nights — and then again Saturday morning (where I couldn’t decide if I wanted to squeeze in a quick run, or just do some indoor cardio). The weather was super stormy/tornado-y Friday night, so Saturday morning was a no go — but I still did some killer indoor cardio!
I plan to run this week on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings — to take advantage of the cooler air.
This will make week 2 of my “couch to 5k” training plan — and I’m beginning to feel like my old self again!
I need a new playlist
One thing I noticed when working out the other day is that I have a serious need for a new playlist. Right now, my go to playlist has something like 200+ songs and I can never find the one that would really pump me up. Does that make sense?
I’m going to trim down and make a “Fall 2017 Running Playlist” for myself and limit it to 20-30 songs.
Labor Day Plans?
I plan to recover!
Saturday we did the Fight Gone Bad WOD and it kicked my butt!
