Fitness Friday: It’s That Time of Year Again

May 13, 2011 at 2:03 am 2 comments

Time for outdoor sports (soccer and t-ball begin this week), sweaty, tired, happy children, and increased appetites being satiated with picnics at the beach.

Running Rundown

Everything is posted in km. For those of you who only do miles, 1 km = .625 mile OR 1 mile = 1.6 km

Saturday – 22.2 km run with Elation Run Club. We ran the half-marathon course for Ottawa Race Weekend. Since we were on the bike paths, we ended up with an extra kilometer. No extra running to the studio and back this time. Just an easy walk- aahhh…

Monday – 5.5 km run home from Beech Street Greco location. 5:19/km average pace.

Tuesday – 14 km run with Speed Class. Approx 3 km warm-up and cool-down running to the track and back. On the track: 100m fast, 100 m jog; 200 m fast, 200 m jog; 300 m fast, 300 m jog; 400 m fast, 400 m jog; 600 m fast, 400 m jog – and then repeat going down (i.e. starting with 600 m and finishing with 100 m).

Felt that in my hamstrings on Wednesday! For the first time during a speed workout, I actually pressed the “lap” button on my watch after each interval. I got to see that we really were going at a speedy pace (for me) – between 3:48/km and 4:33/km.

Thursday –Still suffering from sore hamstrings from Tuesday evening so I decided to take it very easy. 10 km at an average 5:35/km pace. In order to keep it interesting but to not get myself all pumped up, I listened to CBC Radio. It kept me entertained (informed?) without making me run faster.

Strength Training Stats

    Letting young kids to touch on football not just can practice themselves and be more health and strong. The kids have a team to love for long must be another important benefit.

    If the young children play football,they can get more physical fitness and they can get to meet new people as well and make new friends.
