Friday: 30 minute run/walk, 30 minute arm strength workout, crunches
Saturday: 1 hour run/walk
I’m really making an effort to plan out my weekly workouts, in order to not end up running everyday. I have a bad habit of neglecting strength workouts even though I know they are beneficial. I have a mile-stone birthday coming up this year, so I am aware of how important strength exercises are as I get older, in order to help avoid injuries.
Right now, the leg strength workouts are mainly body-weight exercises- meaning lots of squats, lunges, and leg-lifts. For the arm strength workouts I have 5 pound weights, so the exercises have higher repetitions. I am also trying to incorporate more yoga into my weeks. My flexibility is rather poor (in my opinion) with tight hamstrings and quads, and I think yoga will help that. Right now I am just using an old DVD, so if you know of any good yoga DVD’s or YouTube videos, let me know!!
