I dance better when I am running!
Well…not actually when I am running, that is complete madness and I should probably reword the title to avoid confusion.
But I am not going to!
What I mean is, running training makes me a better dancer. So…I have yet again restarted running.
If you have been reading this for a while you will know by now that I have an love-hate relationship with running. Actually no, that is not strictly true, it is more like a mild affinity / don’t hate too much / hate relationship to be honest…
But the one thing I can say is that in 2014/15 when I was training to run a half marathon I danced better than I feel like I dance now.
Another thing I can say is that last year when I was still doing more kickboxing and plyometric type training, I danced better than I feel like I do now.
Don’t get me wrong, I am still considerably fitter than I was, but I have been concentrating too much on lifting and neglecting the cardio. I need to do both, I need to have a variety of exercises in my routine otherwise I will not be Fit Enough to Dance in a Mask and that was the point of this whole project!
So, first thing I have done is start running again. I think I mentioned it, but then I mention it a lot so I can’t remember whether it was recently or ages ago…
Yes…I could go back through some posts and have a look…shhh!
anyway…here is some running!
It has been not awful for the most part! I have started using one of the couch to 10k apps of which I have a veritable plethora from all of my different try to run attempts!
I will keep you posted because, as normal the only way for me to keep up doing stuff is to tell you all about it!!
I am going to incorporate some more cardio stuff too, possibly Insanity or Insanity Max 30 but I haven’t decided yet so I will let you know as soon as I do 😀
And no…I am not stopping lifting, that would be madness…I am just going to do both!!
