Presents! Presents for me, mean presents for you !
I’m slowly learning technology. Remember, I work with my hands. For a decade I worked in a cave, as a Massage Therapist. No computers, only candles. Working one day as a Physical Therapist, the power was shut off to the City of San Diego. That day I missed the traffic nightmare as everyone left work trying to get home. I was able to keep treating patients. No power required.
Sean and I also love to totally unplug in the Mountains.
These days as I become more involved in the blogging world, I am learning to appreciate technology . Julie of Peanut Butter Finger’s introduced me to Screen Shot (told ya I was behind), which opened a whole other world of goodies. Why does this matter to you??
Because, now I can do this: Lower Body Strengthening for the Runner
What no repetitions or sets?? I feel it’s important to listen to your body. It’s easy to over or under workout. For strengthening, you should reach muscle fatigue (go until you can not complete another repetition with good form) and repeat this for 2-3 sets. If you can not finish all the exercises the first time. No worries, you successfully fatigued your muscles which will lead to them becoming stronger. Try the list again in few weeks, you may be able to finish it then.
You also should avoid completing too many HIT workouts in one week, recovery is just as important. With so many great workouts, over training is an easy thing to do. For cardiovascular training, it’s easy to compare your mileage to others. Go at your own pace. For a great article on recovery, and how it affects race times read Running Time’s article on Peter Snell, by Jim Ferstle.
Here are some links if you do not recognize the exercise:
And I’ll give you a playlist (just over 40 min) as well:
Or, check out Rock My Run if you like “DJ style”. They have a variety of awesome mixes.
What type of music do you listen to while working out? None?
