Daily Sweat! TM Fail + NTC + Yoga

good. its working.

The more I run, the more I realize that I need to wait about 5 hours after I eat to hit the pavement (which is a big reason I usually run in the morning).  I was harshly reminded of this tonight.  I was scheduled to do a 4×400 speed run.  Unfortunately, the rain kept me off the track and instead bound me to the treadmill.  So to achieve my speed training I did 4 sets of 2:00minute runs @ 8:00minute pace. In between each set I recovered for 3 minutes.  Honestly, I mostly walked to recover because I was cramping so bad.  After I finished the 4 sets I just ran at an easy pace to finished out the 5k. It really was a horrible run, but I am proud that I kept with it and finished. And that is the most important thing! Here is a look at my entire workout today:

Warm Up: Spinning

Speed Work: TM 4×400 (well 4 x 2minutes @ 8:00minute pace), total: 5k run

Weight Training: NTC’s Leaner Legs ~ this is one of my favorite “get focused” routines!

Cool Down: Spinning

{I burned about 65o calories in total & even though my run was not quite on par I pushed as hard as I could during the NTC & spinning!!!}

Yoga: Tara Stiles tweeted this routine out today so I decided to give it a go…

  1. So sadly true for me as well regarding the 5hr wait. It makes it really hard to schedule runs or any kind of exercise when you work and can’t/don’t want to go in the morning. Stupid slow metabolism…

    • Seriously! That probably has been the only positive thing about not working…being able to schedule everything else around my running. haha. Well those days will be long gone soon:)

  2. Hey Janelle – as a newbie runner I never understood how to read all the running lingo! What does 4×400 mean?
