That said I have decided to follow my original Hal Higdon app that I purchased for the next 12 weeks and it began on Monday. It felt slightly like going backwards since the length of the runs are shorter than what I was doing but the plan is written by a very experienced champion runner so I am just going to trust the program. It includes strength & stretch days, running days and cross training days.
Here is my schedule for this week:
- Monday - strength & stretch, I am using the Nike Training Club app for these workouts and doing it at home
- Tuesday - run 4.8km
- Wednesday- crosstrain, I am doing kickboxing (eeek!)
- Thursday - run 4.8km
- Friday - bootcamp
- Saturday - rest
- Sunday - run 6.4km
Months and months ago I bought a groupon-y type thing for a kickboxing gym. I just realized it expires in April and it is for 20 classes so I decided to register and my first class is tonight. I am super nervous! It looks like it is at an actual kickboxing gym (as opposed to a cardio kickboxing class at a gym) and is seeming slightly intimidating but we will see!
