I’m Sprinting AgainPosted: September 26, 2011
Kicking it up a notch from last weeks Strides and getting back into Sprints. I was going to do Strides again but since my knee felt reasonably good during this morning’s 5k Recovery run…sprints was back on the menu for this afternoon’s workout!
Brekkie Post Run: Green Tea, Oatmeal with Vanilla Creme Protein Powder, Mixed Berries, Banana Slices, Chai Seeds & Goji Berries
Mid Morning Snack: Carrot sticks, Sesame Snaps, Apple & Cinnamon Muffin
Lunch: Broccoli, Sugar Snap Peas, Chickpeas smothered in Tomato Sauce & Mixed Berry, Yogurt & Muesli Parfait
10 x 100m Sprints = Done! Between each repetition I had a 1-2min walk recovery. For each set I ran close to full speed. I was just on a high after both workouts today. I taped my knee and it didn’t hinder my performance in any way. So I rejoiced in these 2 small victories 🙂
Post Afternoon Workout: Chocolate Milk & 200ml Water with Protein Powder
Afternoon Snack: Orange Slices, Apple & Cinnamon Muffin
Dinner: Baby Spinach, Tomato, Canned Salmon, Sweet Potato, Goat Cheese, Green Beans, Carrot, Broccoli also had a Grapefruit (not pictured)
Some Benefits of Sprinting 🙂
- Sprinting Increases Stamina
- Strengthens your Cardiovascular System
- Strengthens your Skeletal Muscles
Goal for the week: I will rejoice in each and every small milestone
Thought for the day: Everyone progresses at their own pace!
