|How I felt during my long run|
Monday-Rest Day. Did some squats, hip bridges and more squats. I am trying to not only strengthen my hip flexors but also I am trying to lift my booty. I want a J-Lo butt, I am woman enough to admit that.
Tuesday-Ran 3.6 miles...40 minutes. Took this run nice and slow with a speed session in the last 5 tenths of a mile. It was a short speed session but one none the less.
Wednesday-Rest Day/Cross Training...
2 sets of squats, one with no weight and one set with 8lb weight bar.
2 sets of mountain climbers, 114 all together.
2 sets of push-ups, 41 all together.
2 sets of donkey kicks left and right legs, 104 all together.
3 minutes of planks, side planks, hip bridges, bicycle crunches.
2 minutes of leg circles. Working inner thighs.
50 minutes of stationary bike, 14-16mph for most of the ride at resistance level between 7-11...3 speed sprints on resistance 4...calories burned, between 540-640.
Thursday-Rest Day. Did absolutely nothing except take it easy!
Friday-Another Rest Day...need to keep legs fresh for Saturday's 5mile run.
|Jacob and I post race|
Minutes run or biked this week=3 hrs and 32 minutes
Minutes doing calisthenics=10 minutes (pretty wimpy)
Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
