You’ll easily do a 10k by this time next year! There is a cto10k too I believe by Zen Labs, but Asics do a pretty neat running plan. I would personally recommend 2-3 days sprinting/HIIT and one long endurance run a week, just see where your feet take you :-)
Oh and if you lift too - lift and run (not at the same time of course)
I know! And remember when those spiteful/jealous anons were like omg you need to eat carbs thats why you do a 40 minute 5k, now I can do it sub 30 on a good day and on Sunday ran 3x5k in 1hr40??!
Cheers anons, wut dunt kill me meks me stronga etc
I don’t actually think that Sunday was a good time in comparison to other people but I’ve learned throughout my entire journey that my run is my run. Comparisons don’t matter, I put in those miles, nobody else and I just have one competition and it’s myself.
I think running on the days you don’t want to is one of the best ways to break down any barriers that might be holding you back. If you expect to do a shit run, it often happens - but just lace up and get outside whether it be for 10 minutes or 100 minutes.
Keep going, it’s all you can do! thefitty
ANON YOU CUTE THING SERIOUSLY Thank you so much :-) I am so proud of my run & you’ve just given me a goodnight send off :D
I love your official anon business, I think it’s great.
Still scared to wear makeup, photos don’t show the cysts I have under each eyelid and the one on top is going down.
People keep saying OO THEY LOOK BETTER and I’m just like yeah, about time? Like I’m just so fed up of them I don’t get what the fuck their purpose is other than to annoy me hahaha
But thanks for asking anon!
Ben Greenfield is an amazing dude and I can’t believe that it took me this long to find him. His book ‘Beyond Training’ is great + pushes recovery being as important if not more important than the actual training itself.
A guy who recommends sitting around??? ++++++
But yeah I mean I’d love to try crossfit but I don’t think my body could handle daily work like it could before I got sick. I do (or try to) do 3 sets of heavy squats every week (75kg has been my highest) with rest periods in between.
Whilst everyone is different remember overtraining isn’t good for our adrenals and we need some recovery time.
Why is it embarrassing? I hate this notion - we’re all beginners at things, there is nothing embarrassing about it!
I recommend Mehdi’s Stronglifts 5x5 - Which is what I do.
Make your workouts short and explosive if your aim is muscle building.
Thank you so much for this message, gorgeous!
