One of my favorites…because YES, I am a Runhole!
When I’m training for a big race, I tend to put a lot of other important things on the back burner because running is my passion and I need my me time!
Do you feel bad for being a Runhole? You shouldn’t… sometimes we just have to do what’s right for us…and I know you all give so much to your friends and family so don’t stress over the time you take for your long runs. You deserve it!
Who passed up some non-running fun plans this weekend saying, “Sorry I can’t. I have a long run in the morning.”? I know I did! 🙂
Day 20 exercises: Long Run + 7 Key Stretches for Runners + Side Plank + Hip Dip + Leg Lift (:45 3X each side) + Ab and Squat Challenge
Ab & Squat Challenge Day 20:
- 10 Sit Ups
- 10 Crunches
- 25 Squats
Plank Challenge: Side Plank + Hip Dip + Leg lift – Another tough plank coming at us today! The calendar calls for this to be a high plank…but I will do it from a low plank position and it’s fine if you do it this way as well. You will still get a great workout and will be able to balance yourself easier from the low plank position. The following video shows how to do it from the high plank position but don’t copy him completely. He doesn’t drop dow low enough with the hip dip. I think you can do better! 🙂
Day 21 exercises: 7 Key Stretches for Runners + Moving Lateral Panther Plank (:45 3X) + Ab & Squat Challenge + Rest
I know it seems like a lot for “rest day” but staying active is what we do and a short recovery run is always a good idea too! 🙂
Ab & Squat Challenge Day 21:
- 20 Sit Ups
- 15 Crunches
- 35 Squats
Plank Challenge: Moving Lateral Panther Plank – I couldn’t find a video for this one but the steps are below. If you’re iffy about the movement, just hold the panther plank for 3 sets of :45.
- Assume panther plank position.
- Maintaining a flat back and keeping your knees two inches off the ground, move your body to the right by simultaneously moving your right hand and right foot to the right a few inches, then your left hand and your left foot to the right.
- Move right for 15 seconds, then move left the same way for 15 seconds. Continue for 45 seconds; do three sets.
Ready to see some fantastic long runs this weekend Crew! Anyone who calls running “not a sport” clearly doesn’t go long on the weekend! 🙂
