I’ve become a fairly athletic 35 year old male. I’m actively training for my next half-marathon in March and Full Marathon in May aiming to be close to or beat 4:00 hours. Perhaps a mini-triathalon after that (the shorter ones) I’ve recently completed my 200 hour Yoga Cert. I’m a creative oriented person so I enjoy mindful movement and meditative oriented classes.
So in addition to Yoga and the running training, I need to cross train with weights. I will be doing swimming on the weekend, but the last component is weights. I’m in between a few options. I’d put this part of the plan in my routine in between Yoga and running. So a sample week would look like this.
Monday - Weights
Tuesday - Marathon Group Training Night (Hills, Stairs, Sprints)
Wednesday - Recovery Run + Light Yoga and Weights
Thursday - HIIT oriented Run (Hills, intervals) + Weights (Maybe light yoga stretch)
Friday - Yoga (Power + Yin)
Sat - Long Run + Hatha Yoga
Sun - Swim + Yin Yoga
For the Weights Component - I’m inbetween a few options:
- Kettlebells- I have a set, know a trainer, and could work toward another cert in this area
- Crossfit / traditional lifting at a gym - I’m new to this but would be interested in learning
- An online website like Gymnastic Bodies - Appeals to my sense of learning how to move efficiently and effectively. Mindful like Yoga
Any thoughts? Thank you
