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 are 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 complement 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.
May Running Statistics
Distance – 137 km
Total Hours – 14
Longest Distance – 12 km
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!
