Benny Run Day & strength train
Today is actually an official rest day from running.
I woke up SORE AND TIGHT in my glutes and my hiney is SCREAMING MAD! ouchie!
My Quads a bit sore too!
That Summer Intensity full of squats/lunges and lots of jumping jacks is a great switch up use of lower calf muscles too! A whole hour of different cardio...different muscle use...what an AMAZING BURN! I love the ache.
Although I am nervous about tmrws run, lol.
Today I busted out 7 pushups.....YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT...SEVEN! Wow...how did I progress so much so quickly? Where did my Shera strength come from?
Ab crunch for one minute
2 one minute planks
arm curls work-out for 10min
Then tonight I took my Pup out for a run. We did it wiser this time and let him get his happy running jiggles out before we set out. Which included a half hour of playing and running fetch with his favorite tennis ball.
I ran Benny a whole mile today. A few minor twist ups as he chased cats and got distracted with barking dogs from within houses and passer by cars! over-all he could hold a 9min pace and stayed with me for at least half of it. Even so his time was 10:25 or so for a mile! Boom Boom Benny!
I won't lie as I turned the corner back home he didn't know where we were going and tried to run on my left but I'm training him to run on my right.....so when I yanked him over he sorta fell weak and lost control of his lil legs and fell over...weak I presume...good thing we only had 2/10ths a mile to go!
He took the best hose bath outside and drank plenty of water..he was so tired!
