H.I.T.T & Rest
Saturday, July 13, 2013
Hubby mentions trying some H.I.T.T methods and I have been reading up on some things I would like to incorporate into my running (i.e. sprints up hills) after I finish my 1/2 marathon. I am always thinking of ways to switch up my workouts and love reading tips from types of running shoes to what to eat for great hair!
I recently took Spark's quiz on the type of runner I am. I am the type that likes to run distances and enjoy scenery while not being bogged down to time constraints. It also suggested getting out of my comfort zone and trying some sprints. I just hate them to be honest. It makes me breathe too hard and heavy like I am truly going to pass out. My husband says that I am in better shape now and can do it + it is a harder workout in lesser time; which is a fact! But, I cannot mentally wrap my head around it. Now, the Spark article does say that my type of runner should definitely push ourselves to do some intensity runs as our type gets so comfortable with running distances that we do not push ourselves much.
It is definitely something I am going to consider since time is of the essence for me! Today, I am truly tired. Thursday I ran 5.5mi and it was
because I ran the .50 in an additional 10mins, I just may be able to finish my
under 1hr & 45mins
I will take that gladly
So...I am resting. I am a bit sore although I have not ran in two days. Physical therapy on Thursday was a bust and I am going to have to proceed with surgery on my right wrist to remove the Ganglion cyst. I have been trying to get it removed since February.
For whatever reason, I have been thrown off a day and keep thinking it is Sunday although it is Monday. Which works to my benefit a bit because that means I am a day ahead on my work for the week (somewhat)! Nope, not looking forward to the week as the heatwave returns on Monday
Dishes are pilled back up although I buy paper plates...still tryna figure that one out
I do not cook let alone the weekends so cheese pizza for the kids from Pizza hut and a thin crust veggie lover's for me! Still drinking my water and getting my freggies!
My plan is to get up and finish my week with a
(6mi) practice run as the race is in another week! Well...keep Sparkin' ladies and being fabulous, beauties...YOU ALL are
