Happy Martin Luther King, Jr day! It was another successful week of training for me. I got a few runs in, tried a new group fitness class, and did pretty well on the healthy eating front.
Monday 01/12/15: 3 miles on the treadmill plus lots of stretching, and jump rope at rehearsal
Tuesday 01/13/15: Rest day
Wednesday 01/14/15: Rest day/date night!
Thursday 01/15/15: 45 minute Sh’Bam class (stay tuned for a post on this!)
Friday 1/16/15: 5k on the treadmill plus core workout, stretching, and jump rope at rehearsal
Saturday 01/17/15: Did some leg and core strength exercises at home with my resistance bands/body weight
Sunday 01/18/15: Rest day. My stomach was a bit unsettled, so I didn’t even do the jump rope warm-ups at rehearsal.
All in all a pretty successful week, especially when you consider that I don’t even have the motivation of a race to train for at the moment. My goal for this week is to run at least 3 times, and to check out a CXWORX class at the gym on Thursday. It’s a short, intense class focused on strengthening your core, which will be a perfect complement to my running.
Are you able to stay motivated with your running/cross-training when you don’t have a race coming up?
