Hi everyone and welcome to week 6 of the 10 is the Magic Number 10k plan. So how are you all doing? How are you finding the runs as they get longer?
So this weeks runs are:
I need to apologise, I did not do a video as intended today or yesturday as it was too wet to keep my phone out for any length of time ( it’s not waterproof). So this is an older one but in the same woods!!
This week I talk about strength and core work. I have never found this very easy but as the years have gone on I do a lot more now thanks to my dear friend Rignold who gave me training plans and made me do it. I am still not great and I am hit and miss but I will list the things I have found most helpful. The pic is from my wall and I think the best exercises to start with from nothing. The Strength and Flex podcasts are also supposed to be good ( I have to confess I haven’t done them).
What I do:
Burpees ( these are the dogs **** and will make your running better in every way.
Balance. This is über important and one of the things my osteopath got me doing after my many injuries. Yoga is best for this, and I am a recent convert but one legged squats, standing on one leg, one leg and twist round are all good.
Plank.... great for core, build it up if you’ve never done before.
Upper body also important. Some of you know I have been training since Jan to do a pull up. I’m close but not there yet!! There is so much I could suggest on this but loads on the internet.
I could go on and on but I think just doing something and build up is the best way....
