Phase of the moon?
No near-term goals?
I got 3 days of cross-training and my long run in but no "easy" run and no tempo run. 1 of 3 runs is a less than stellar way to start out my 10k training plan.
Up this week: A fresh start.
I'm hoping to incorporate some new cross-training, too. My bike commute is an easy way to get some mellow exercise in (20 min each way) but I still need more exercise minutes in my week. I got three new videos & a book in the mail on Friday so hoping to work in some change:
I know I'm at least 3 years behind on the Jillian Michaels bandwagon but I've always been a few steps behind everyone else :)
I did her Level 1, 20-minute 30-Day Shred workout after my long run on Friday and it seemed pretty simple at the time. It was only 20 minutes after all, with cycles of 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of abs work. I don't have hand weights so I did the strength segments using the same hand motions but weightless.
And you know, my deltoids were SORE the next day!!
Kinda pathetic but kinda cool, too. I obviously need this! I just need to figure out where/when I'm going to work these in, beginning with the 20-minute workouts. Those should be easiest to squeeze in between work/baby/chores/bed.
I do need to get some hand weights, though, to make this really effective. I tried REI this weekend but no luck so I guess I need to find a sporting good store, which doesn't really exist in our part of urban Seattle so may be easier to just look online.
Here's to a new month & new week!
