Exciting day at the Lasano fitness center.
First off, I went to the running clinic at the HAWC (Health and Wellness Center). They offer a lot of great things like running analysis, body fat testing, a sports nutritionist (free), and much more. I need to be taking advantage of all the FREE help they offer to the military. I better hurry before they cut that stuff out of the budget like they do so many other services.
Today we discussed the importance of the mid-strike of the foot while running. We practiced what it feels like to propel your body forward and to run on the balls of your feet while cutting out the heel strike. As I did this, I felt myself glide across the gym floor. Running was A LOT more efficient practicing this. We watched this.
Went to TM class and I focused on the technique we had just learned about.
5 min warmup.
30 second sprint, 90 second recovery repeat 5X
Run at base and add 1% incline every minute for five minutes
Sprint on an incline for 30 seconds, recover 90 seconds, repeat 5X
Recover 5 minutes.
I did some lifting, 100 sit ups.
Went back to the TM for another 4 miles. Started at 7.5 and went up on the TM every quarter mile until I was at 8. Started the series again. Cool down for 1 mile.
