I ran with the girls tonight again!
I actually got ill with some sort of flu this past weekend, and yesterday I stayed home in my jammies because of that (yup, even skipped dance class and yoga). It was… blissfully refreshing to do absolutely nothing for a day. I know “the importance of a rest day”, but for the first time I felt how my body and mind needed the complete and utter lack of activity. What makes me thinking of my busy training plan and how I planned to have something, at least some yoga, on every day of the week. Will I be able to keep that up for at least two months till the race? I hope yes. We will see.
Today I felt well enough to go to the running event. We ran the same intervals as previously, but I took it easy and slow. Every ~750m round, we got an exercise to perform:
- 30m walking lounges <- these are a killer, especially when you give them everything you’ve got!
- 10 pushups
- 30 mountain climbers
- 15 sumo squats
- and another 30m walking lounges <- I am so happy to have long legs, trust me.
Afterwards, we lined in two rows opposite each other and did planks with high-fives for 3x30s, and 2 sets of 30 high knees. These were intense!
…and then I ran home. Yup!
Distance: about 7k total
Time: No idea!
How demanding is your training plan?
Do you give yourself at least one day per week of complete rest?
