I’ve been kind of doodling around for the last month, randomly selecting different ShaunT workouts (Beachbody On Demand is GREAT for “choose your own adventure” workout schedules!). For May I decided to change it up. I’m doing a really fun challenge group with a bunch of our team, Sweat Nation, coaches, and at the same time, I’ve been hankering to start training for trail racing…. We have a GLORIOUS trail system I can access right behind our house! I think I actually have a perfect combination:
PiYo is one of my soulmate workouts (yeah, I’m promiscuous, I have a couple!). It’s a fusion of pilates strengthening, and yoga lengthening, all at a pace that brings your heart rate up into the cardio zone. What I love about it, is it takes care of your body as it conditions it. I think radical core strength really improves my running and YOGA is the only thing that keeps my legs working at all. I guess I’ll see how I feel in a month – maybe this year I’ll finally do the Foothills XC12K. I’ve planned to do that race SO MANY TIMES, but then am always either out of town or injured.
