Pumpin Iron


Still struggling with recovering from my long runs, haven’t even had the energy to go out for my easy run. So, decided that it’s time to kick off my strength training. Forgot how easy it ease to burn calories pumping iron. Might need to adjust my training programme a bit and perhaps bring in the 3PLUS2 approach. I know I have to do the strength training, it will help with endurance…I can feel it is working cause my muscles feels a bit sore from this mornings few light swings 🙂

Duration: 40mins
Calories burned: 280cal

Quote of the day: “I like to say, and I truly believe, that every run brings new experiences. You just don’t know what they might be until you actually do the run. That’s one of my major reasons for pushing out the front door as often as I do—the adventure of it all”.

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
