Ultimate Running Date #48 May

With the cooler weather now upon us, it’s time to dust off those warmer running clothes.

We shall need them for our running date. This morning it was a balmy 1.4°c.  Brrr. Yeah, just a tad cold for my liking.

May, was a quiet month when it came to running.

I started a 10km training plan just to keep my fitness level up.

Yoga and weight training also heavily featured.  I was able to finish both True Yoga & Chalean Extreme.

This means for June I get to start something new.

That something new is PIIT28.  I bought this back when I got injured in 2016.  I’ve done bits and pieces of it but never the whole shebang.

This will be my cross training tool to compliment my running program. It will take me longer than 28 days, as a PIIT workout will only happen 2-3 times a week.

The advantages of this program are that it’s all bodyweight, and all the exercises are modifiable, so you can stay within your skill level.

With a change in my work roster (again), most of my runs, are now after work.  So while I’m not witnessing sunrises, I do get to see a few sunsets.

Number of Activities 
– 20

Overall Running Statistics

Total Moving Distance – 903 km
Monthly Average – 180.6 km
2018 Prediction – 2,167 km

Still on target for my 2018km goal.

If I keep an average of 35km for the week, then I will reach my goal.  To keep myself accountable I use the Done App, which is a simple habit tracker.  It’s like a reverse to-do list. It’s clean and simple. Upgrading to the pro version will only cost you $3.  Well worth it in my opinion.

My challenges for June are;

  • 35km a week
  • PIIT min 2 x a week
  • Mobility everyday
  • A minimum of 7h30m sleep
  • Not eat crap at work

So, until next time, run on!
