Is it Wednesday already? I don't know where this week has gone!
I was able to stick to my plan this week, for the most part. I actually got up the courage to take my treadmill workout to the streets...well, to the local trail system, at least! I ran outdoors three times this week:
Run #1: The only time I actually remembered to bring my watch along to time my 45-second running bursts. I found it much more difficult outdoors, but it was totally doable.
Run #2: No watch this time. I sprinted as long as I could and then walked in between - 8 sets.
Run #3: Loooooooong and slow. Guess what? I think I went 1 full kilometre before stopping on my first stretch!
I'm starting to find my recovery time between running spurts is getting much easier and shorter. Yeah - such a great feeling!
In other news, my golf clinic has started up again on Monday nights. It's amazing that I can actually work up a sweat when hitting the balls properly, ha! I went through an extra large bucket in 45-minutes and pained myself with the reality that I have to re-learn how to swing a club. It happens every year unfortunately....all those bad habits creep back. I've noticed a big improvement already and can't wait to challenge D to a game this weekend.
For the week ahead my goal is to:
- GOLF: one round on the course, one clinic and one round of practice balls at the range
- RUN: increase my runs to 1-minute or more; get in at least 4 sessions
I think I'm going to try adding one new activity per week. What do you think of that challenge? I know that some form of strength training should be on my list, but it's the one thing I hate most. I admit it! Even when I was super fit back in the day I'd just loathe it. Maybe next week! :P
Have a great week!
