So, I think I’m really enjoying this “not training, training” a little too much! While I was trying to fall asleep last night, I came up with a workout, for today’s run! And, you know what?! It was fun and challenging! Especially, pushing the boys!! (I would have shared our finishing picture with you…but realized, after-the-fact, that it was not-so-suitable for sharing. Oh, my crazies…strike again! Sorry.)
Ok, a little side note…this may sound strange, but I never really “got,” how people could just lap swim. Sometimes, daily. Same thing, everyday. Don’t get me wrong, I give major credit, for the simple fact that they’re there! Doing something!! For me though, it’s not my thing. Maybe it’s because all I ever knew, were swim sets…so even if I don’t do something crazy, I still like to have some sort of workout plan or goal…which I would change, for each swim. It’s probably weird, because I don’t compete anymore. But, it works for me. Keeps it interesting.
With running, my goal was always to survive. (Maybe the same is applicable to swimming? Oh man! People probably wondered the same thing about me!!) Anyway, now that I’ve been running a little more, I enjoy trying to mix things up a little. So, even though I’m not training specifically for anything, I like to present myself with different challenges.
Anyway, you are more than welcome to try it out! You can easily change things around too – to make it suitable for you. I can also give suggestions for that, if you want!
I don’t really get to come up with swim workouts anymore, so I guess I’ll do it with running! Hey, whatever works, right?! Keep in mind, I am not a run coach…though it is on my certification wish list!! I’m just waiting for one to be offered locally. Someday soon…hopefully!
Well hey, look at that! With today’s run, I’m nearly 3/4 of my 100 mile goal for the month!! Woohoo!!
Oh, and finally…I’m remembering to start my Charity Miles app too!! Sometimes, I forget to stop it though. Oh well. Every little bit helps, right?! Today, I donated my miles to the ASPCA! Have you tried it yet?
What are your workout thoughts? Do you have specific workout goals??
