I have put in two decent workouts that have included the bike and some weights. I am glad to be back in the balance of things. As much as I love running the mix is what keeps running exciting for me. When I match the right cross training with my running I become super runner. I try not to get too gushy about cross training but if I could walk around street (pathway) preaching to runners about anything it would be just that. Mostly I see a bunch of crappy form and all I can think is - get an assessment and get your form back, you'd love running more! Disclaimer: though I haven't personally watched myself but the hubby tells me I'm doing ok. Another reason I need to keep up with the weights: the Warrior Dash and Spartan Race. Thursday night I'm going hill training with teammate Lisa for the Spartan Race. I have proposed to her that one of our final workouts be the movie 300 workout. It looks like this:
Pullups - 25 repsDeadlifts with 135 lbs - 50 reps
Pushups - 50 reps
24-inch box jumps - 50 reps
Floor wipers - 50 reps
Single-arm Clean-and-Press with 36 lbs Kettlebell - 50 reps
Pullups - 25 reps
It might get modified via weight and doing girly assisted moves on my part (I don't doubt Lisa will be able to crank this out). But for now I'll pull and push what I can to get strong and hopefully post a decent time at both events.
