You know what they say about the best laid plans... So, um, yeah. It was a no-go for running this morning. I made it as far as putting on running clothes, getting on the treadmill, and doing my warm-up walk. 30 seconds into the first run interval, I realized: 5am on a Monday?!? It just wasn't happening. So I switched off the treadmill, and turned instead to my upper body/core strength training plan and did a circuit of weight training.
So, the plan to switch to Monday/Wednesday running is probably going to get scrapped. I'm going to use the rest of the week to try to figure out a new approach, but for now, I'm back to Tuesday/Thursday runs.
However, I got in some strength training today, so it's hard to complain about that! And I liked doing a little bit of cardio beforehand - I think I'll definitely incorporate 10-15 minutes of walking prior to pulling out the weights from now on!
- 10 min. warm-up walk
- 35 min. upper body/core strength training
