I have no plan of doing any ultras anyway. My ultimate running goal is to be a mule for Curly friend when she works up to that point; carry extra water and fuel and keep her company in the lonely miles. I probably only need to be able to do a half to handle that so I've decided I'm going to switch to boxer training!
After I did a little research, I wrote a training routine. Wanna hear it? Of course you do!
Round 1: Jump rope
Round 2: Jab cross
Round 3: Alternating hooks
Round 4: Squats
Round 5: Boxer shuffle with alternating jabs
Round 6: Sumo squats
Round 7: Right round kick
Round 8: Left round kick
Round 9: Front kicks
Round 10: Jump rope
I found a round timer app on my phone for FREE! I set it up for 2 minutes per round and 1 minute rest between. The rest seemed long so I will probably shorten it to 30 seconds for future workouts. I'm going to alternate this routine with one I found on YouTube for a while and see how I feel.
Think I'll look like this by summer?
