JORDY: PANDEMIC TRAINING

Posted on Jul 07 2020 01:14 AM

Hi Everyone, it’s Jordynn!

We are in very strange times with the Coronavirus pandemic! Just like everyone else, I’ve been adjusting to the changes with staying home but it seems there will be a chance to compete pretty soon. Keeping that in mind, I’m doing my very best to stay in competition shape if that call does come. Here are some of the things that I’ve been focusing on:

Strength Training: I continued to focus on my strength work at home. Using light weights, resistance bands and body weight exercises. They have become more challenging because the focus has been around balance, flexibility and stability. While I have backed off a lot of heavier moves, I have felt a lot smoother and fresh during my runs. So that’s something I want to continue as I’m learning how my body reacts and feels during and after exercises.

Track Training: I’ve been pretty consistent with my track training; I continued to do trails and neighborhood runs and actual track days. I’m hitting the track in the early mornings so we can avoid as many people as possible; there’s a lot more walkers on the track these days. My track trainings have been more speed/specialty endurance based as I was preparing for the season; I’m planning on sticking in the event I get to compete prior to season’s end. I’m also hoping I can get a few time trials in over the next month or so.

Looking Ahead: Speed Capital is on my schedule for 2021 and that keeps me excited and motivated to keep working as I know it will be some great runners competing! I’m 100% sure they are all just as excited as I am so I’ll continue training hard to improve and ready for whatever the summer holds.

Stay safe everyone,

Jordynn
