Juneathon Day 3, a pretty busy day both at work and on the exercise front. I kicked the morning off with a 25 minute Yogaia session, Energising Flow. This was quite a relaxed class, but it woke me up and got me ready for a day of conference calls and spreadsheet manipulation.
Midday saw me sneak in my 60 squats for the day and then when I finished work I managed to ignore my duvet and rather than sneaking in a nap I went out for my planned TrainAsONE sprinterval session. A warm-up, 4 reps of 3:3 intervals at 5:08/km pace, cool-down. I think I still had a bit of marathon tiredness in my legs (or maybe it was just the fact I had been standing at my desk all day) but I didn’t quite hit planned pace on all of my intervals. Effort is what counts though, and I must have done an OK job because the magic plan has increased my base pace for tomorrow’s run.
I rounded out my exercise for the day with a Yogaia Vinyasa Flow class. This was a toughie, lots of half press-ups and my first introduction to dolphin pose. Dolphins may actually be more hated than pigeons in a yoga context. I don’t think I am a fan at all, especially when I had to reverse my arm position and have my palms facing up instead of down. Part of the reason I am doing yoga is to increase my strength though so it was good to have a strength focused session completed, even if I did nearly end up in a post-run knot of cramp.
