On Tuesday night, we had 10 hill repeats on the schedule. If you haven’t been following along, we’ve been running 200 meters up a bridge. My prescribed pace is 63 seconds, and most of the time, I’ve been hitting or exceeding my goals.
We had another rainy day and I really wasn’t looking forward to it. But it wasn’t quite as cold as last time. And I really didn’t want to run my hills on the treadmill again!
Yeah … that last lap only looks like it was too slow. There were only four of us that braved the rain (that turned to drizzle and stopped) … Two guys and two girls. The guys were faster, and one of them thought it would be funny to move the marker on us. We ran about .01 too far. It makes a difference when you’re only running for a minute!
My only other run was on Saturday this week. It was a sunny day, about 60F. Lovely!
We didn’t have too much time so we just planned a loop through town for a little over six miles. We had to get back in time for another boot camp session!
There’s a trainer in town that offers occasional free classes. I’m going to try to do them as often as I can since they’re really good workouts!
We started with a half-mile warmup run around the track (well, we were already warmed up, but I always like the extra mileage!) and got to work.
After a variety of exercises including push-ups, tricep dips, sideways stair-climbing, medicine-ball passing and tethered running, we had a decent series of ab exercises. Perfect for my core challenge workout!
Core Challenge Week 2 Day 2
I don’t know the names of all the exercises we did, but they included reverse crunches, bicycle, passing a basketball from overhead to our feet and passing a 10-pound medicine ball from overhead to our knees. We finished off with a one-minute dolphin plank hold.
I’m pretty sore today. That means it’s working, right?
