The struggle when you’ve not done much for 6 weeks 😫
Hills reps this morning and some more of that S&C and ankle rehabilitation. Feels a hard slog this running lark at the moment.
It’s perfectly normal after a lay off though to feel like you’re really unfit, heart rate too high, legs buckle earlier than they used to. Just keep thinking how strong they were. That strength doesn’t just vanish! It’s there waiting, but does need some patience to unleash it. .
Hills are great to build strength this time of year, you can vary they way you run them too. For my club training group each week, I set them sessions with hard hills; technique focussed hills; easy up, hard down hills; Kenyan style, with continuous effort for 10 reps up and down. .
Vary the length and terrain, technical hills are exciting, but require a different level concentration. Long hills are great for building endurance, short fast hills perfect for encouraging that explosive part of your running cycle.
Go find some hills and enjoy! ⛰💜👌

This sinus infection has been killing me these past days but since y’all have been asking me what 3 leg\butt accessories I do every Leg Day.......here they are👌🏽😂
1️⃣Always go as low as you can on squats and squeeze your butt when you go up.
2️⃣ Bend your knees a little bit while doing Romanian Deads.
3️⃣ Squeez them quats when you go up to keep the tension. (They’re 🔥- as you can see I got tired at a certain point😅)
