The Half-marathon took everything out of me, I was a jittery mess for a month before, my legs were aching every day and night from the running that they just weren't used to and I actually cried on a run when my right calf refused to release from the cramp it was in. It took that much for me to realise that I am in no way shape or form a long distance runner. 10km is a fun distance for me, something I can enjoy and actually attempt to beat records in.
The 12WBT to those in the know is based on eating 1200 calories every day, burning 500 calories on weekdays and 1000 calories in a super Saturday session. The most important part is that it means that I am not specifically training for something and being incredibly stressed about the actual event. I am just going to enjoy a good body combat class, some great sessions with Tonic Training and some bush walks, runs, or sand runs on the weekend.
One thing that I quite enjoy is the motto of the program: JFDI (Just F-ing do it). I need to get me a visor like Michelle:
Program officially started last Monday, but we were on holidays so decided to postpone to Thursday when we got back. I started the exercise program a few weeks ago, but the assigned programs were released on Thursday so while we were on holidays we did the workouts each day. They are really easy to do especially with the great options of gym machines, outdoors, classes or at home.
Look forward to hearing a lot more about some great recipes and workouts for the next 12 weeks!
