The Coach feature
I think the main reason I quit the first time around was that it wasn’t flexible at all. Also, it doesn’t take into consideration your specific details like weight, running level, agenda, etc.
Now, I just switch things up a little. It’s OK if I don’t run on Tuesday, I will run on Wednesday. No, I didn’t cross train on Monday but I painted a whole room so that counts!
My running rules
1. It’s okay to walk
Thanks to this little training diary I kept last year, I know cross-training is my main issue. I try to incorporate more walking than last time but still, I sometimes feel it in my body that I just keep on solicitating the same old muscles too much. I should really work on my upper body more.
What counts as a workout?
I’ve recently read a very interesting post about what counts as a workout. I found out that it makes the whole thing easier when you’re being sensible and not worry too much about cramming x workouts in a week.
I am quite a big fan of the balanced approach to every aspect of life in general – even if, let’s be honest, I have difficulties to achieve that on a daily basis. Knowing when you have too much on your plate is key to not feeling too guilty about the lack of exercise in your weekly routine.
