Ooooooooohhhhhhhh! now that was a lot of FUN!!! 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡
I went out on a rare evening run last night, I’d downloaded a 30-20-10 Jog-Run-Sprint app and set it up. I went on my merry way with Spotify, Nike Run Club and JogRunSprint apps at the ready. I had one thought as I was leaving the house, which app would conk out on me first and completely ruin my run..
It was 13 degrees outside, so shorts and T-shirt were the clobber of choice AGAIN in November…?! 😱
I’d planned a route down a relatively straight 1.25K leafy path, only interrupted once by a road. There and back was my 2.5k… I didn’t want to have to do too much thinking on this one so I had made it as simple as possible for myself 🤣
I started with a warmup walk and a five minute jog… then bang! 💥 into the sets, Jog - Run - Sprint - Jog - Run - Sprint… Wohoo! I enjoyed this SO much! It was really exhilarating, the short snappy bursts and the 10 second sprints felt absolutely amazing! The sprints finished in a nice amount of time to allow me to recover quickly on the following jog.
The 2.5K was over in around 15 mins and I wanted more!!! 😈😈😈 But I decided not to push it any further today, plenty of opportunities to have some more fun with this again... it had felt like a real treat AND all the apps had worked perfectly 👌
I felt surprisingly energised when I got back home and I was on a bit of a high. I finished it off with a runners warm down routine and a Nike ‘5 Minute Plank Finisher’ to top it off that consisted of:
• Plank alternating leg lifts
• High Planks
• Side Plank Knee Drives
• Plank Saws
• Plank Wraps
Phew! Holy Plank! Lets just say I was sufficiently damp by the end of that - But what an amazing buzz it all was.
Last run of the week tomorrow, 5K.
Hope everyone is having some good runs 😃⚡
