For workouts this week it was mostly “do whatever you feel like that day.” I like these weeks. I took 4 ClassPass classes, which included two strength workouts, spinning and yoga. I had a few runs but wanted to save some stuff for next week…the “official” start of marathon training. As excited as I am to challenge myself, I hate feeling like I have to run. Know what I mean? That’s why I put it in quotes. Anyway, I’ll cross that bridge when I get there. I’ve done it twice, I can do it again.
Sunday: Narragansett Bay Half Marathon. Click for a full recap.
Monday: 20 minute walk.
Tuesday: As One Effect. ClassPass class #1 of the week was a cardio-strength workout. The first 20ish minutes were cardio, the next were strength. Here’s what we did…
90 seconds/75/60/45/30 intervals on cardio machines (10 second rest in between rounds)
Machines used: Stair mill, ski erg, air dyne, and Jacob’s Ladder
of death. We did all the intervals on one machine before switching.
Strength (45 seconds of work/15 rest)
5 rounds of:
Alternating step-back lunge with weights
Bent over row
Wednesday: 5.5 miles. My legs felt completely back to normal at this point and it was a random cooler weather day.
Thursday: As One Effect + Peloton Cycle (check out this post for a recap).
Here’s what we did that day at As One Effect. I hope it makes sense the way I describe it because it was a good workout….
3 minutes of cardio (with a goal rep/distance/height (which I don’t remember)) followed by a bodyweight circuit. Example: 3 minutes of burpees –> strength circuit –> 3 minutes on the stair mill –> strength circuit –> 3 minutes on the Air Dyne –> strength circuit, etc.
2. Stair mill
3. Air Dyne
4. Jacob’s Ladder
5. Ski Erg
Strength (25 seconds of each movement)
Friday: 5 miles (AM) + Yoga at Exhale Spa (PM)
Saturday: Off. Last Saturday morning non-long-run for a while and I took full advantage of it.
