Saturday morning I woke up bright and early and met Jessica at a track in Austin for a POSE running class.  Much to my disappointment the actual teacher of the class was out of town.  A few of her students taught the class instead.  I figured since we were already there we might as well give it a try.

The basics of pose are the Pose, the Pull, and the Fall. 

We practiced all of these fundamentals with different drills on the track.  It was interesting but really really awkward to me.  I just felt like I couldn't get the steps right, and I felt all out of balance. I understand the basic idea of it....but it made me realize that untraining (retraining) my body to run....well it's going to be super tough.  I am going to practice the drills they showed us, and there were a few pointers one of the ladies gave me that I will put in to use the next time I run.

By the time the class was over I was mentally done.  I had 8 miles on the plan for my long run this weekend, but settled on 6 with Jessica after the class.  It was not an easy 6 miles, but I guess I was due for a hard run, as I haven't had one for awhile.

Workout plans for this week:
Monday - Dane's Lower Body Fusion (done)
Tuesday - RUNGT Group 6 or 7 miles
Wednesday - Dane's Core Fusion
Thursday - RUNGT group 6 miles
Friday - Dane's Upper Body Fusion
Saturday - 12 miles
Sunday - Rest or yoga

I hope you all have a great week!

  1. I forgot you had the POSE class this weekend. It sounds like I would be too clumsy for something like that. I have zero coordination!
