I got back on track this morning after missing Tuesday’s workout. I did kick it into a higher gear yesterday at barbell, but I really feel like I get the most out of my small group workout. And today was really small because it was just me! With that being said, I got in an extra 15mins on my workout and my trainer geared everything towards me and learning new techniques and lifting more weight then I have in a long while.
Wound up being a really great workout. Learning that even though my upper body is fairly toned and fit, it is still weaker then other parts of me. The knee tucks I did felt harder then normal and not because I was weaker in my core but because my arms didn’t want to hold me up for that long. So we focused on upper body for a lot of the workout today.
Strength training is so important for runners even though there seems to be a disconnect between the two. My trainer is very eager to get me runner faster. It is going to be crazy once I get the ok to run again! I think he has some plans for me that I’m not even aware of yet! Yikes!
