Stop the T-Rex!
As a runner I tend to neglect the rest of my body when it comes to training so I often joke that I'm like a T-Rex......great legs but useless upper body and arms. As a result, I'm often on the lookout for short workouts that I can squeeze in before my morning shower or after a run that will get me on the path to having more upper body strength than a 4yr old girl.
Recently I came across a week's worth of workouts posted by a dancer called Back on Pointe and thought why not? , her blog talked about getting back into it and starting over so I thought this would be a good way to ease into core and upper body. Did you know that when you haven't done jumping jacks and push ups in a while, they tend to hurt the next day? I mean seriously! Next day my inner thighs felt like someone kicked me in my lady parts and my pectoral region was less than co-operative when I tried to wash my hair. Ahhh such is the life of the 40 year old :)
I posted the link to her list of the weeks workouts so my training challenge to you is to give the week's workouts a try and drop us a comment on this post to let us know how you did.
Till next week,
