Last week was a great week!! My training went pretty well and for the most part I feel great. Other than my left foot really bothering me, I have no complaints. (I think it may be Plantar Facitis...ugh).
What I did last week:
Monday: Rest day...took it easy...watched some Monday Night Football.
Tuesday: 3 miles easy;
strength training that included 3 sets for a total of 90 squats; 60 pushups (17 on my toes); 3 sets of 45 second
planks; 60 sit ups; 3 sets of 30 seconds of flutter kicks; 75 toe raises.
Took T out for c25k week 5 day 1.
Thursday: 1 mile w/u; 6 x 50 second repeats with 50 second recoveries. 1 mile c/d (repeats were anywhere from 6:30 pace
to 7:00 pace)
CrossFit workout: 3 rounds for time: 10 burpees, 20 squats, 30 sit-ups. My best time was 2:20 (last set).
C25K wek 5 day 2 with T.
Friday: 3 miles easy
Saturday: Jingle Bell Run with the family! Can you say 36 second PR?????
Sunday: Half mary at an easy pace.
Total mileage for the week: 32 miles.
Total cross training sessions: 2...I really want this to be closer to 3 or 4.
The plan for this week:
Monday: CrossFit WOD from Spartan Race, and MYRTL exercises.
Tuesday: 6 miles easy and take T out for C25K W6D1.
Wednesday: 4 miles easy and Cross train
Thursday: 1 mile w/u, 4x400 repeats with 400 recoveries, 1 mile c/d and CrossFit and take T out for C25K W6D2.
Saturday: 11 miles easy and CrossFit and take T out for C25K W6D3.
Sunday: 5 miles easy
Goal for mileage: about 30-35.
I am feeling much stronger. The last couple of weeks of strength training has made a difference. It motivates me to keep at it. I have also lost about 1.5 pounds last week. My goal is to lose 15-20 pounds over the course of the next 3 months or so. As hard as it is to avoid snacking, I feel I am doing well and hope to continue to see the number on the scale continue to drop!
What are your goals for this week?
