It is not the fear of losing fitness or speed that keeps me from taking a breaks. Running is simply a part of who I am. I love running everyday. My training plans include zero days off. However, I need to begin marathon training fresh and well rested, so my week off lives on…
That said, I still made it to the gym this morning for an easy workout.
20 minutes on the elliptical machine…I typically can’t stand the elliptical, but I wanted to do some sort of cardio for a warmup.
Forward lunges x 30 (pushing back up fast but controlled)
Lateral Lunges x 30
20 jump squats
Plank 2 minutes
Reverse Plank 1 minute
Single Leg Squats…Today I just worked on being able to do this correctly on each leg. My left leg needs work.
Bike 20 minutes
Glute March x 30
My heart rate got up to 145 for the jump squats, but it stayed well below 130 for everything else.
Later tonight, I plan to do more Yoga X in my living room.
Three days down, four to go.
