I’ve been struggling with how to fit in some of my c25k running sessions with my ongoing committment to ChaLEAN Extreme. I don’t want to overdo things, so it’s been a trial and error process.
I think I’ve finally figured out what I’m going to do. I changed the order I do my CE workouts. Instead of doing cardio (Burn It Off! or Fat Burn Challenge) on Saturday, I’m moving that workout to Tuesday. So, weather permitting, I’ll plan to run that day instead of those DVDs. Mon/Wed/Fri strength workouts will remain the same.
Now, I have toyed with what to do on Thursday. I really enjoy the Burn or Get Lean Intervals workout, and don’t want to double-up the cardio on that day by adding a run in addition to ChaLEAN’s tapes. So, for right now, I’m going to leave that day as is. It’s the most intense cardio burning workout I do right now.
So, Saturday – the day that used to be a ChaLEAN cardio day, is now a designated running day. And when I’m done, I’ll do the Recharge DVD to wind down for the weekend. Sunday is my new, and only, day off now. I almost feel like running isn’t that hard on my body, so I don’t mind having one less day off. Of course, judging on how I feel, I may take another rest day here or there, but for now, this is my plan!
