I really hope my fingers don't fall off tonight


Today's joggling plan: 6 miles (home from work, with 5 2-minute intervals)

I'm on my way for a 6-mile speed joggle home from work in a few minutes. It's -22C with windchill. Joggling into a cold wind makes your fingers freeze no matter how many pairs of gloves you wear, because you can't scrunch your fingertips into your palm to keep them warm.

I plan to use mental strength to ward off the frostbite, and maybe a bit of yelling and screaming.

I'm doing speed intervals today, which will make things even more challenging. Running fast while juggling can be tough because as your arms pump faster to generate more speed, you can end up tossing the balls much too high. You have to correct this by holding onto the beanbags a little tighter and releasing each one just a touch later than usual. Once you gather up speed, you also have to start tossing the balls further forward so they don't collide with your nose. And with my big nose, I need to be especially mindful of this.

Off I go...

Hey Michal, what kind of non-joggling exercise do you do to prepare for a marathon? (weightlifting, stretching, other?)

I pretty much just joggle and I'm wondering if other activities might help me get faster.

thanks & keep on bloggling.

Hi Perry,
I was going to write a post about this soon. Running drills, especially plyometrics, help a lot. Also, strength training using low reps and high intensity with a focus on the core.
