When jogging develops from a hobby to something more, you need to revise your schedule: most likely, you will train every day. But how at this pace of life to manage to work, meet friends and spend time with the family? We talked with an expert on running in Sportmaster Yulia Timofeeva on how to maintain balance in everything.
Ever since school, I learned to keep up with everything: to study, and ride competitions. I studied in the military-patriotic class, so I know what orienteering, sports tourism, and mountaineering are. I run regularly a little over a year. Before that, she was professionally engaged in bodybuilding for three years, performed in the fitness bikini category and spent a lot of time training. But “drying” is still difficult to tolerate, running is a more pleasant experience.
My next start will be in June - Altai Ultra Trail, running seventy kilometers. And in July - Golden Ring Ultra Trail, there is already a hundred kilometers route.
I can go to the theater or just take a walk. But the main hobby for me is still running. Even if I have a day off, I still wake up and go for a run. This is my way of life. The young man supports me, but he does not run around.
I tried, said it was not for him. He does crossfit.
Here is my playlist, which is ideal for a long workout.
There are so many starts this season that sometimes after work you have to leave right away to compete. You go night, run in the morning, then come back at night - and again to work. Sometimes you don’t even have time to sleep. But I like it all. Like to achieve goals.
Until I reach them, I will not calm down. Six months already I keep a diary. It is scribbled on all sides. Much flies out of my head: for one time I can plan a training session, a trip to a cosmetologist, and a meeting with my girlfriend. Everything needs to be written down so that later someone does not fail.
I made a playlist for long runs. I hope he will cheer you up and help you run as long as possible and easier. I can relax in some light training or at home, watching a movie. I manage to do the latter infrequently, and I don’t really want to. I like to test myself.
I started running ultramarathons, and I’m curious not just to run. It is important to get both pleasure and a good result.
