I wasn’t bored with my workout today but Brooke sure was. She was ready to get outside after my 60 minutes of switching off from the treadmill to the elliptical to weights. It flew by for me but apparently for her she was ready to go on our walk.
Once we got outside she was beyond happy and talking nonstop.
This morning I was texting a friend who was asking for some ideas to get faster. After I told her my favorite ways to get faster and then I started looking up some more speed work ideas for her to try and I found this article here with a ton of great ideas.
Remember: “Speed sessions aren’t about sprinting flat out until you’re sick. They’re about controlling hard efforts and spreading your energy evenly over a set distance or time, just like you would in a perfect race.”
It got me really excited not because I am obsessed with getting faster (okay, that is a lie) but also because they had a TON of ideas that will help fight any boredom you might be experiencing with running. Throw in a few of these workouts and I guarantee (I guess I can’t guarantee anything) that you will be looking forward to your runs more because you will be trying tons of new things all of the time. Here are a few of my favorite from the article:
Does talking about speed work make you hungry too? I had to get in the kitchen asap after reading that and made a tilapia salad, apple with pb and a piece of bread.
