When I began running longer distances in anticipation of my first marathon, I completely neglected strength training.
This week’s training:
Sunday: 4 mi buddy run
Monday: 5 mi run
Tuesday: 4.25 mi easy run + taught HIIT & Ab Blast class
Wednesday: AM spinning class 50 min.
Thursday: 4 mi progression run + taught HIIT & Ab Blast class
HIIT class is 30 minutes followed by 30 minutes of core work. This is what I love about HIIT: Your body continues burning calories at an elevated rate long after the workout is over.
I ran in my new Nike Frees. I didn’t realize how much I used my gray pair (I’ve been running in them off-and-on since May)–these felt wonderful during my treadmill run.
