(this is a photo of my running plan for my up coming marathon in April)
This weeks goal setting post is different from those of past weeks.
Normally I have been picking for areas of life and making a combined total of 10 goals.
I have been having great success meeting those goals. Well, except for last week, I think I managed perhaps 4 of the 10. My excuse,we were on vacation.
Now that we are home, its time to get back into regular routine.
Part of that regular routine includes training for a marathon that I have entered in the end of April.
On vacation I did a pretty good job keeping up with the miles, but I missed this weeks long run, and while away I did not cross train at all, and cross training really helps with my endurance.
So this week it is time to refocus and get back on track.
My Fitness Routine for this Week
1/2 hr kettle bell class/40 minute Spin Class
(looks like rain outdoors so I am going to have to run indoors)
30 minutes on the treadmill (aka,the dread tread)/30 minutes elliptical
Morning workout: 30 min Kettle Bell Class / 50 lengths of Swimming
Afternoon workout: Run 5 miles outside (so far the weather forecast looks good)
(so far the forecast is for weather too cold for my lungs)
30 min dread tread/30 min elliptical
Plans for the day will not allow time for a work out so this will be my day off.
This is my workout day with friends, so I am assuming we will meet at the Y and run a mix of dread treads and ellipticals for 1 hour
Normally this is a day of rest for me but since I got a bad chest infection last winter, I just can’t handle running outside in below freezing temperatures so when I see a window to get out for a long run I take it and it looks like Sunday is the day this week.
After Church I will head out to run 15 miles.
Strange as it may sounds, I look most forward to this run all week. I have the best fellowship with the Lord during my longest runs, its just me and Him,some praise music and the pavement.
As you can see, what workouts I do in a week depends on weather and appointments.
I find that if I don’t plan out my workouts at the start of the week, I am more likely to skip them.
I also find I stick to regular workouts better when I have a goal race in mind. Right now that is a marathon in April.
How about you? Are you working out regularly? If not do you want to?
