Gotta move this body while I can.
I could have spent the entire day today studying but I decided to get up and move my body.
Why? Because I could.
For some reason I have decided to take both Friday and Saturday off as my rest days. I guess I like to enjoy my weekends by being as lazy as possible.
I used the Run/Walk Interval Timer App to set up the following workout.
The best part about the interval run is that I am 100% committed to running when I am supposed to be running and I walk when I am supposed to be walking. It does not matter if I am running up a hill I keep going until my phone buzzes for me to stop.
I was a little apprehensive going into this workout since I was having issues breathing on my last run, but like I said no two runs are created equally.
I really feel like I pushed myself, since I was huffing and puffing during my walking breaks and I did about two miles and some change in the 27 minutes. I finished up the 35 minute workout by walking home.
Not only did I get a good physical workout, but I feel mentally refreshed. I have a lot going on this week in terms of assignments and exams so I just needed to pound out a run.
I stretched and foam rolled once I got home. I always used to think that I did not need to stretch or foam roll, but I can really feel the difference with the myofascial release.
How many rest days do you take a week? What workouts did you do this weekend?
