Running varies between weekdays, with cardio and endurance advances every week. The routine is interesting (sometimes hard to remember once I leave the computer) and definitively challenging.
I am getting pooped though, on the drills and some of the cross-training exercises - anything that makes my HR jump to a maximum and drive me to be out of breathe rather quickly. I still finish this and I do see an advance in holding-off the "pooped-ness", so I'm not disappointed. Drills always made me tired - even throughout my whole 8 years of football.
So here are two drills that poop me and one that gets me a lot of looks on my street when I return from my runs.
When I read the description quickly, the only thing that came to mind is this:
I usually do these at the end of a long run and all the stored fuel in my thighs has been spent, I get down on the ground to start these and the first thing I want to do is curse Jill, but I just don't have enough air inside so I just do them and shut up!
We used to do these in the air force, and I can't stand them! "I didn't join Cirque du Soliel Sarge - I joined the Air Force!" Haven't been assigned these yet, but they have been mentioned.
I only have one word for you Jill: "NO!"
Similar to the Nazi goose-step but a lot less subtle!
The Frankensteins are a little touchy because I have two retired Germans on my street, as well as a recent immigrant from Italy and it took me a little time to explain to them I was not trying to insult them from something in their national histories or to make them feel uncomfortable.
Oh the things I do because I'm a Wannabe!
I love all this work, my only worry for running over winter is to find the proper foot gear and a place to run where the snow is cleared. Any advice would be gratefully accepted. I don't own a treadmill BTW (the elliptical and the weight benches and mats take up most of my exercise room's space).
