Well week two of my training has gone surprisingly well. It was my first week of getting up at 6am to walk to the gym and hit the treadmill, I will admit it was tough getting up but once I was awake I was fine. The gym was pretty quiet with only a few early birds getting their booty call in like me ;)
This week my training plan had three 4.5 mile runs scheduled for me. Running on the treadmill was a lot different to running outside as there are no obstacles to tackle like dogs, cars and old people but once I got the hang of it it was fine. The machines work in kilometres which for someone who has always worked in miles it is a bit of a challenge to try to convert things, especially that early in the morning! For my first two runs my Nike app worked great, I am faster on the treadmill than outside as expected. However, I had a bit of a slower run on Saturday morning as my Nike app decided to play up so I had to go back down to a walk a couple of times to try and get it to work, eventually I gave up and just judged the distance by the machine. I am hoping that my app will work tomorrow!
Legs are feeling strong and I can feel that my stamina is increasing. Yoga certainly helps...
After watching Catching Fire yesterday I have decided that this week in training I will be channelling my inner Katniss ~ fit, calm, confident and deadly with a bow! Goodness knows I'll need the inspiration during my 5 mile treadmill run on Monday morning. I do miss running outside so hopefully I can get out for my long run next weekend.
Have a healthy and happy week! Let me know in the comments what workouts you have planned :)
