This has got to be my favorite bondiband. It puts all my priorities in proper order.
I managed to keep most of last weeks fitness goals. I of course switched a few things up from the original plan due to weather and appointments changing as the week progressed.
I ended up running for a full hour outdoors on Tuesday, and then on Thursday I spent a full hour on the elipitical. On Wednesday I decided to stay for spin class after strength training instead of swimming. However, on Saturday I did get my 50 laps in while my daughter played in the water slide area of our local Y.
Saturday morning I missed my workout with my girl friend. I miss my buddies now that I am working out later in the day. Can’t wait till mornings warm up and I can return to running more with friends.
This Weeks Fitness Goals
Monday: REST. I am living up to the saying on my bondiband above today, and hanging out with my Hubby.
Tuesday: Looks like it should be nice enough to run outside 9 miles.
Wednesday: Workout 1: half hour strength class followed by 40 minutes spinning class.
Workout 2: 30 minutes on the elliptical
Thursday: looks like its the nicest day of the week to grab my long run, 16 miles.
Friday: Workout 1: 1/2 hour Strength Class followed by 60 laps of swimming
Workout 2: 4 miles running
Saturday: Girlfriend workout at the Y (snow in forecast) guessing 3 miles dread tread, followed by 30 minutes elliptical
This is the first spring marathon I have ever done, my last two were mid to late fall. I am seeing already that I am having to be very flexible with the day I do my long run to avoid trying to do a 15 to 20 mile run on the dread tread (aka treadmill).
I have read of some runners that do 100% of their marathon training on the dread tread and the thought of it makes me shudder.
I would much rather switch it up with more cross training than face the dread tread for more than 3 to 4 miles at a time.
How about you? Are you a runner? and if you are what is the longest treadmill run you have ever managed? (mine is 9 miles, and it was only once)
