Happy Sunday! Although school is still in session, summer weather is definitely here. We got to the pool for the first time Friday after school, and I’m looking forward to some lazy summer days ahead.
Training wise, my shins are feeling great! So that’s exciting. However, did I mention I was also dealing with a mild case of plantar fasciitis? I’m falling apart over here! So I need to give that a few more weeks.
Here’s the rundown of cross training:
Monday: spin class
Tuesday: 4 mile walk (am) + 3 mile walk (pm)
Wednesday: 5 mile hilly walk + short strength session
Thursday: 45 minute spin with 2 x 5 minute rounds of tabatas
Friday: 4 walk (am) + 3.5 walk (pm)
Saturday: 1-2 hours of HIIT training (broken up in many segments) at an instructor training for Max Fitness… long story, but there’s one opening in our town and when I chatted with the owners, I was asked to come on as an instructor and I figured, why not? I only have a few hours I can give to them, but it should be really fun!
If it’s true that 30 minutes of HIIT is better than a 60 minute treadmill run, then I got my 2 hour long run in!
Round two of training today with kick boxing and strength training… wish me luck!
Sunday: Chicken sausage and black beans in the crockpot
Tuesday: Sushi (we like to make our own)
Wednesday: Grill whole chicken, veggie kebabs and potatoes
Thursday: Leftovers into burritos
Friday: BBQ Chicken Flatbread Pizza
Saturday: Picnic dinner at the pool
Have you done a HIIT class?
Any tips for keeping plantar fasciitis at bay?
