Another personal training session today, and it was an easy one (until I feel the burn tomorrow, I guess).
I was focussing on weights for back and core, and doing a bit of balance, squat and lunge work on the half ball and Swiss ball. My trainer Natalie (she was filling in for Jenni) recommended doing side and prone planks for a minute every day to build core strength for running so I stay upright (as opposed to my Quasimodo-up-the-belltower lurch by the end of every run).
Once I’ve got that bit sorted, I need to add in a medley of arm movements and foot taps, like a prone, ab-working Gene Kelly.
Speaking of Singin’ in the Rain, which nobody was, it is BUCKETING down here right now (early evening). I have a dawn run set for tomorrow, rain, hail or … rain.
This will be the first test of my steely resolve which I am determined will not become RUSTY.
Ok, enough rain puns.
