RuthixCube Trains for a 5k... (Part 1)


RuthixCube

Recommended Posts

Aaaand I’m back! A week later than I'd planned, but I needed some down time after my move. That’s okay though, I won’t need the next zero week as this is going to be more of an 8wk challenge than a 4wk challenge. I only have 2 goals, plus a side goal, to keep distractions to a minimum.

 

In August, my sister and I are doing Warrior Dash. I’m not sure how she managed to convince me to do this, but she did. She’s probably the only person who could honestly lol. Anyway, since that’s coming up quickly, I need to start my training. Now that all my moving and such is pretty much over and I’ve given myself a week to relax (haha I wish, there has been no relaxing), I can actually start doing just that. Warrior Dash has its own 4wk training program, so I’ll be following that plan twice over. The first 4 wks (Part 1) is going to be "easing" my way into training, but that doesn't mean I'll be taking it easy. While I did my 30 days of fitness last challenge, it wasn’t necessarily 30 days of legitimate workout sessions - I’m still pretty out of shape. The second set of 4wks (Part 2) is where I’ll take it up a notch and really push myself. I want to compare my first set with my second set to see how things changed (hopefully for the better). I’ll have another 2.5wks after the second round before the race, so maybe I’ll start it again a 3rd time to keep myself going until race day. I don’t know yet, but I also don’t want to wear myself out.


Goals:

Intermittent Fasting

Same as last time - Mon-Fri; eating only between the hours of 12p and 10p. Prior to noon only coffee, tea, and water are allowed. Weekends are not strict, other than to continue being conscious of what’s on my plate.

 

OCR Training

Follow the training program for Warrior dash according to the schedule: 

Monday - Cardio

Tuesday - Cardio & Strength

Wednesday - Core & Flexibility

Thursday - Cardio & Strength

Friday - Cardio

Saturday - Strength

Sunday - Active Rest

 

Side Goal: Unpacking

I have a fair bit left to do after the move. The big important stuff is mostly done, or at least to the point where I can live there without issue. What's left is mostly aesthetics, decorating, and moving things to their proper places. I still have some boxes to unpack and some reorganizing to do. I don't want to overwhelm myself with too much, but 3x/wk I want to pick one thing to do and spend the evening working on it. I don't even have to finish it the same day, just so long as I have it started and a plan to finish it.

Yeah for getting moved!!!  Glad you jumped back in to the challenges!  

 

I did a warrior dash several years ago.  I ran with a friend who is a runner.  It was interesting how the running was easier for her but I smashed the obstacles.  Strength versus stamina? Naaah, it takes both for the ORCs!  That training plan looks well balanced.
