Happy Tuesday and welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics! Thank you again for join me and Kim each Tuesday to share your tips, advice, support, and experiences. It is a difficult time right now for everyone but we are trying to make the best of it. I hope everyone is staying safe and doing well.
This week’s Tuesday Topic: What kind of strength training do you do? You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
I understand the importance of strength training and for years stubbornly did not do it. I would read various blogs from runners talking about it. For years my form of exercise was “just” running.
Fast forward a few years and I have a Peloton bike and an assortment of classes thanks to the Peloton app. A few weeks ago I did the Pelothon 2020 Challenge and did a variety of classes (strength, stretching, walking, and meditation). To be honest, they’re classes I wouldn’t have thought of taking since I was mainly focused on the cycling classes.
I am so glad I did the challenge! Debora, Kim, and Coco have talked about the various classes they take. I am sure you’ve read all about them. 🙂
My strength workouts are mainly the lower body and upper body classes. I love that there are many options. You can select the length, class type, instructor, music, and level of difficulty.
I don’t care too much about the music for these workouts so I select them based on the length and class type.
I am loving Matty’s 10 minute classes. So many squats and thankfully I don’t get sore anymore.
I know I can do more but for now it is a start. Baby steps. 🙂
