I feel like I should title it “Marathon Training”. How can you call it training without even doing any running?!
This week actually went pretty well, even with no running.
Monday – I did pool running for 1 hour and 5 minutes. I think I did 900 yards. Sometimes I lose track of my laps 😉 It seemed like a good working, not like running but still a workout. I also did workout #9 of Better Body by Minimalism. After a week off from weights it was tough! I did some random core moves afterward. I also rode my bike to work and back, about 6.25 miles.
Tuesday – I did the spin bike for 45 minutes, mostly staying at gear 11, with some intervals mixed in at the end. Then I did elliptical for 35 minutes at level 6, just trying to keep my heart rate up. I also did a ZGYM workout, lower bodyweight moves and kettlebells. In the evening I did a 20 minute yoga routine aimed at the feet. It was…interesting!
Wednesday – Pool running again, this time an hour and a half. I’m guessing about 1100 yards this time. My quads were definitely feeling it after this one. I was getting pretty worn out by the end of it! I also did another ZGYM workout, mostly kettlebells again. In the evening I did another yoga video, Stretch and Soothe with Adriene. I am really liking her videos!
Thursday – I did the spin bike for 1 hour. I tried to keep the rpms around 90, mostly on gears 10 and 11. Added 20 minutes of intervals at the end. I was dripping in sweat by the end! I also did workout #10 of BBBM. I made some good progress with my band pull-ups, most of them I was able to do with 1 knee instead of 1 leg. I also rocked my kettlebell swings at the end, doing two sets of 12 with my 44# bell 😀 In the evening I did some yoga, no video, just some vinyasas and deep stretching.
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – were all ‘rest’ days. We went camping and had a blast!! We rented kayaks and spent a few hours on the reservoir paddling and fishing. We didn’t do much hiking, mostly just relaxed. It was a much needed break from work and we had a lot of fun.
This week hasn’t been as productive, but I’m still doing my best.
