As the weather changes, I feel like my workouts change as well. Not only that, but honestly, I get bored really easily. While I have continuously professed my love for boot camp as of late, I know I need to mix it up as well, so I wanted to share with you all what I plan to (loosely) be doing this spring as far as workouts go.
1.) Boot camp 3-4 x’s a week: Boot camp is held on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I always plan to go Monday, Tuesday and Friday, and try to make it Thursday every other week. This ill give me the opportunity to get an extra run in every other week, or a second rest day if I feel like I need it.
2.) Run 2-3 times a week: After a near PR at Rock ‘N’ Roll NOLA after only running once, occasionally twice a week, I decided I want to ramp up my running to 2-3 times a week, but since we are getting out of half marathon season, they will be shorter runs (but I would like to keep a 7 or so mile base through the summer). So I will run on Wednesday and Saturday, occasionally throwing in Thursday as well.
3.) Rest 1-2 times a week: I always take one weekend day off to rest (preferably Sunday), and on weeks I run twice instead of three times, I will use that second day as a rest day. I just think every other week my body responds best to two days off. Let’s face it, life happens, and sometimes we have doctor’s appointments, extra work, or are out of town. I don’t want to get so strict that I am beating myself up over a missed workout.
Now that the weather is nicer, I plan to be outside a lot with the family, too. We love going on walks, and Emma Kate is now old enough to go to the playground, so I will do some “active rest” as well. I mean, let’s face it….with a toddler do you ever REALLY get a full rest day?
QOTD: What will your spring workouts look like?
