In Workout Week posts I will tell you everything about my last week’s workouts.
Monday was Jooks Jõud Venitus day aka running and strength. My legs were killing me from Nike Day on Saturday and the workout wasn’t easy. At the end of the class, Maris advised us to take off our shoes and run one lap barefoot. As I had thought, I felt a huge difference which means that usually I land on my heel. I try to improve and stop doing that but obviously I need to be more careful with my running technique.
Tuesday began with a shock when I found that my score on Sportlyzer.com was 9999 instead of 1155 last night. I freaked out since I thought all my data is messed up. But it wasn’t; it was an April’s Fools joke… They got me good!
In the evening I had a BodyPump class. Instead of Florian we had a new instructor substituting. She was a beginner instructor (I think) but she was really good! I also told her that after class 🙂 But since the class began 5 minutes after the normal time, we had to skip biceps track. I was kind of disappointed about that…
On Wednesday I got to TYSK early and did a 25 minute jog prior to the actual interval training. Then we did a 10 minute warm-up, some dynamic stretches, running exercises and began with the actual interval part of the class:
We finished everything with some core exercises and stretches. Overall it came to almost 2 hours of working out (1 hour 28 minutes of running) and 12,6 kilometres. This my longest distance EVER. I felt so amazing when the workout ended. Loved it!
Thursday was BodyPump day. It was awesome. I enjoyed every minute.
Friday was supposed to be an easier day on my legs before my Virtual Run on Saturday but… I messed that one up 😀 I wanted to do a nice 45 minute swim session to give me legs some rest. But going to the pool is such a hassle here with all the buses and waiting, so I decided to cycle to the city and back. Great decision: I was home 2 hours earlier than by taking the buses. Bad decision: the wind was pretty strong, I was moving like a snail and my legs felt like jello when I got back home. I got a little nervous about the race next day…
Anyway, the swim itself was pretty good: although I had to share the lane with 2 older ladies who were much slower than me, I managed to improve both 500 m and 1000 m front crawl times. Yay fot that 🙂 All in total: 1000 m of front crawl, 600 metres of breaststroke.
Saturday was the day of my third race this year: III Virtual Run. In total I ran 11 km. Longer post coming next week.
Sunday was the most relaxed day of the week. I went to the pool again, started off with 500 m of breast and 500 m of back then did 500 m of fast crawl and finished it with 100 m of slow swimming. I improved my best time in crawl again for the second time that week. All in total: 1,6K.
- 3 hours 15 minutes of running
- 3 hours of muscle workouts
- 2 hours 15 minutes of walking
- 1 hour 30 minutes of swimming
- 55 minutes of cycling
Overall I had a good week. I improved my personal bests in running and swimming, my muscles feel great and I even managed to do some cycling. Now I’m really looking forward to next week: I’m excited to see how I’m going to do in Parkmetsa 7K race. Wish me luck!
