I am obsessed with running shoes. Hmmm...shocker. I know. It's really the first thing I notice about runners. Their shoes. Next....since they are attached to the shoes....legs. Specifically the muscles. Like RunEmz's legs. Awesome. If you don't follow this rockstar on instagram, you are missing out. (I want her abs too by the way)
I've also been quite inspired and impressed with Jody, who at the age of 56, is a freaking power house and her legs look amazing. I've been slow to come around to this, but I'm getting there. I want powerful looking legs. I want more definition. So..... I'm going to do something about it. I AM doing something about it.
|not really revealing of my progress.....next time I'll wear shorts!|
I started focusing more, consistently, about 2 weeks. Doing lunges and squats, as I have been doing, on top of leg curls and leg presses at the gym.
Then yesterday morning, completely out of the blue, the gym manager commented on my legs. He hasn't seen me doing any leg workouts at all...since he's usually gone before I start my workout. But apparently it's paying off because he noticed! 100% total boost to my confidence and after only 2 weeks! Yep, I'm doing it it. Stronger legs + Stronger core. = better (hopefully non injured) runner. You see, it's all part of my plan. My plan that when I'm 39, I'll start running marathons again....with hopes to BQ for the 40 year old qualifying times. So, the work starts now.
As far as core work....that's coming. Not as consistent. But it's getting there. It's all part of the puzzle.
Have you made any tweaks to your training? Something you just added in? New focus?
