In the “What have I gotten myself into category!” I’m a little behind on my updates for running boot camp with Greg Durham. Days three and four where on my own because I didn’t have anyone to watch my little people. Greg was nice enough to send me some running intervals to try out on my own. I don’t have any icky sweating pics to share this post. You will just have to trust me that I’m working hard.
Day 4: I tried what is called a “slow out, fast in.” You have a designated time and you run out slowly until you reach that time. Afterward you run back fast and try to beat your time. I didn’t do very well on the day that I tried it because I wasn’t running on a track or trail. It was basically an incomplete project.
Day 5: I was suppose to run an interval where you run quickly for several seconds and then you have a few minutes to recover and you alternate. When I tried this I had incomplete instructions so I tried the “slow out, fast in” again. Since I was on a track I was able to complete this run and I was pretty happy with the results.
Day 6: Today Greg took some video footage so we can work on our forms. I don’t know what the video looks like and I don’t think I want to know. lol – I’m running with other woman who are so much faster. The next time I hear someone talk about being to old to be fit I’m going to have to tell them about the women that I run with here at boot camp. I’m younger but these ladies run circles around me. They are wonderful, encouraging and inspirational! So no excuses!
What would really be cool is a dietary/nutritional work shop. I’m not talking about a lecture but more like a class. Honestly, I have lots of questions. When and what should I be eating before a work out. Is there a difference in what you should be eating depending on what your work out is that day? I’m a huge fan of muscle confusion so some days I’m doing weight and others Tae Bo, spinning, running or swimming. What should I be eating after these kinds of work outs? I’m completely missing the food part of what I’m doing. I’m a work in progress. I’m not a fan of powders and pills. I don’t stay consistent with taking any kind of pill at a certain time. I rather just stick with food and figuring out how to make what I’m eating work for me.
