Orange Theory made a comeback this week. New readers: I used to go multiple times a week last summer. Whenever I’m lacking motivation or in a workout rut I sign up for an Orange Theory class. I still have some classes left on the package I paid
an arm and a leg for and I have until mid-June to use them up.
Sunday: 1 hour Easter walk
Monday: 4.5 miles
Thursday: 6 (slow) miles
Friday: Orange Theory (2 miles total: .5 mile warm-up + 1.5 mile workout)
For the treadmill/cardio portion we did a pyramid workout alternating rowing and running. Since the distance on the treadmill was short I ran at 9-10 mph depending on the round.
Round 1: 500 m row / 30 squats / .1 mile all-out sprint
Round 2: 400 m row / 30 squats / .2 mile all-out sprint
Round 3: 300 m row / 30 squats / .3 mile all-out sprint
Round 4: 200 m row / 30 squats / .4 mile all-out sprint
Round 5: 100 m row / 30 squats / .5 mile all-out sprint
I didn’t like the weight room circuit. It was core-focused and I really wanted to work upper body. Oh well.
Saturday: 8 miles
Even though Friday wasn’t a long run, running 3 days in a row was hard for me. My legs were very sore after Saturday’s run and tomorrow (I’m writing this on Saturday) will consist of a nice long walk and foam-rolling.
