I’ve had an epiphany. I do not do nearly as much core work as I should. Actually, I don’t do ANY core work unless I am forced to in an Eq class. This is bad, very bad. Esp as a runner. Therefore, I have vowed to up my core workouts to at least 2x per week. Since I rely heavily on a regimen and also on the internet, here are some workouts that I will be doing:
The moves are nothing crazy and some are pretty standard but I find it really helps when you have workouts planned out. At least for me!
Speaking of cross-training, I decided to take Friday as a rest day so I went to the gym and decided to do my own spin workout in the empty studio. I had no idea what I was doing so of course I googled “spin workouts” and found this. I did it during lunch and was dripping sweat. I actually really liked it and had a lot of fun.
On Saturday I was in DC visiting Phil. As he slaved away at work I went on a 10+ mile run through Rock Creek Park. I just love running in DC. There are so many trails and the streets are so wide and clean.
Tomorrow I have my complimentary sesh with an Eq trainer. I really don’t believe in dishing out all that money for a trainer but since they keep bugging me about it, I thought I’d give it a shot. I doubt it will really be THAT much better of a workout but you’ll find out soon!!
Since I know you are curious, this is my sched for the week. There will be some light running since I have the half on Sunday.
- Today: Run 6.25 mi + core
- Wed: Eq trainer + 3-4 mi
- Thurs: Run 6-7 mi
- Fri: Run 5-6 mi + core
- Sat: REST
- Sun: Nike Half Marathon…woohoo!
