Hostyle hits the Springtime Running….
Now that its awesome outside again we have started incorporating running back into our training here at Hostyle.
Many of us are getting ready for Spartan in June and The Army run in September as well as our own “Run Like Hell-th” 5 and 10 km event in September too.
Not to mention the crazy amount of 5 and 10 k’s that happen virtually every weekend from now till winter time.
Then there’s the 1/2 marathons, full marathons, and some pretty sick 50km plus runs that is out there. I think big John Tinholt would run a 500 km if someone put it on…..
So it’s time to get the legs, cardio and core ready for all that runningness.
There is a lot of ways to work your running and its not always about pounding out 50km a week.
Lots of new research coming out showing that runners are running too much and need to focus on core and strength building.(but we already knew that at Hostyle)
So throughout our general conditioning class you will see a lot of 500m, 1000m, and some 2k’s runs thrown in the mix.
Hell, I just did a bench press routine that had six sets and after every set on bench I had to run 500m!!
In 42 minutes I benched 81 reps at 225 and ran 3km!!
The running will definitely add a new twist and the training we do between or after runs will feel totally different.
Now if I can just come up with a way to run with kettlebells!!
