This week I’m at my cabin running in my woods- yay!
how are the running going?
For me I had the fever almost this whole past week but managed a run today. I must also say that my body have been feeling really really tired and heavy. Then I slept a good night yesterday plus an extra 3 hours during the day and today my body was a bit more back on track. My kids wake really early, like 05.30 and not getting enough sleep for long periods are making me nuts and I really feel the difference when sporting on how my sleep have been. I just want to say this cause I hear a lot that
“- yeah but if you do more sport you will not feel as tired” but for me I do need to keep my minimum of sleep before working out otherwise the workout just wear me down even more. With this however said- I almost every time think it’s a better option to do sports than not and that it’s a fine line between tired of not doing anything and tired because lack of sleep…
Keep up the god job!
I love to hear how it’s going for you! (and I’m sorry I didn’t answer you all last week my fever just took over everything)
Now here comes coach Kvitter Javelin 3 week program:
Stretch after every workout (just like last week):
Calves, hip flexors, hamstrings, quads,
Great tips for stretching after running go here (also good tips about anatomy, injuries and other good to know stuff .
And another good video with 5 stretches.
3 sessions / week
2mins quick walking – 4mins jog – 2mins quick walking – 4mins jog for a total of approximately 30min
TIP: Use clock / mobile and keep track of the time. Or make a playlist of about 2-3min long favorite songs where you go jogging every other song.
Quick step walking 6mins + 6mins jog without a break (doesn’t matter how slow you do this but just keep jogging) + Quick step walking 3mins + 7mins jog without a break (how slow any time but keep on jogging) + Quick step walking 3mins + 6mins jog without a break (very slow if you have to but keep on jogging) + Quick step walking 3mins (=34mins all together)
End with strength exercises:
+ strength: skater lounge 20-30reps, sumo squats 20-30reps, plank 30-60secs, flutter kicks 20reps – watch it all here (same as last week)
Day 3 – this one can be a bit rough depending on you condition but We know you can do it!
Walking for 10mins + 10mins jog without a break (slow if you have to but keep on jogging) + Quick step walking 5mins strength + 10mins jog without a break (very slow if you have to but keep on jogging) + walking 5-10mins.
Good luck and keep up the good spirit
I made a little link box to the running club here on the blog’s left column so it’s easier to find all the different weeks programs!
