Today is race day – 50 miles!!!
The week was very light because I’ve been trying to rest up some before running for hours.
Sunday 3/15 – 45 side lying front leg pulses.
I was laying in the sun because it was cold and I didn’t want to turn the heat back on!
Monday 3/16 – 45 squats with knee lift across body – hands behind head the entire time.
Squat again and then –
This move was really fun! Since I counted a right & left knee raise as 1 rep I ended up doing 90 squats.
Tuesday 3/17 – 45 BOSU step overs.
This move went quickly but my stationary quad was burning by the time I finished 45 reps (front-back-front).
I did an easy 5 mile run – 39:23 followed by 0.35 easy miles.
Wednesday 3/18 – 45 weighted pulsing lunges – set weights down, pick weights up.
To complete the rep, go back down and pick up the weights. Umm….this wasn’t my best idea since it ended up being 90 lunges total on each side!!!
And, back down to get the weights to complete one rep!!!
Thursday 3/19 – 45 oblique punches with legs up.
I liked this move – it was fairly simple!!!
Friday 3/20 – 45 boat poses with moving arms (out in front – up).
This was a great core challenge!!!
Saturday 3/21 – 45 quick back & forth calf pumps.
This was a quick back & forth move of my calves – a good stretch before my race. I took pictures of Hunter showing the move Friday morning before I left home so that all I had to do this morning was the actual 45.
Now, I’m off to run 50 miles!!!
