I’m Sprinting Again

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!

    Sprinting is so much fun! Really, after my training for 10K with a lot of long distance training, I was literally craving for some good sprint-intervalls. Getting you sweatie and exhausted in no time and make you feel like a little god after you pushed through it :)!
