So goals are set for next year, a marathon as well as two or three half marathons in place. I want to be not a only a faster runner than I have been, but a stronger one. So before I kick start my running programme in earnest, this month is solely strength based intertwined with a few runs. What’s my plan then?
Overall I’m used to training 5/6 days a week and this is what my programme is based on. I have already began doing at least two of my own weights sessions a week. Each having a functional fitness element in the form of a WOD (workout of the day) which you may be familiar with from a crossfit background. The aim is to the follow the session with some isolated leg work-yes two leg days in one week! So if you see me walking like a sloth being electrocuted that why 😂
My other 2 sessions will involve one run between 5-10km at a tempo pace. Plus a speed run to make sure I’m keeping that explosive power as well as speed endurance in the old legs.
My final 1/2 sessions of the week will be some form of class either Barry’s Bootcamp, Kobox, F45 or AnotherSpace! This way I get full rounded strength experience in all areas. My rest day will be catered to foam rolling and napping 😁
So even though it’s festive season I’m working. Whilst trying to balance the wondrous festivities, extra tasty food and prosseco infiltrating my body accidentally too 🎉
This is the plan, but if I miss a day I’m not gonna beat myself up. Consistency is key but life throws curveballs so we must learn to adapt but stay motivated.
Merry Christmas 😊
