Training Goals 10/12/09 – 10/18/09

Last week’s recap – which honestly, isn’t much of one!

Training Goals: 10/5 – 10/11

Monday: rest, travel day – I rested. And traveled.

Tuesday: rest, walk to the library to exchange a couple of books. – I did this! go me!

Wednesday: back to work – IF, and this is a very big IF, I am feeling up to it, maybe bike to work. I’m not making any promises, though. –  I did go to work, but I did not bike. Still too sore.

Thursday: perhaps if I don’t bike on Wednesday, I can make it Thursday.  I did not bike Thursday, either.

Friday: walk with the architect. – Did this – we walked all over our neighborhood.

Saturday: easy bike or swim. – Didn’t do this – instead I harvested walnuts & put furniture together – a very different kind of workout.

Sunday: maybe a 2-3 mile walk/run? Maybe. – I biked 11.5 miles with Sarah on her last long run before her marathon. It was probably the exact right amount of workout for me! 🙂

Training Goals 10/12 – 10/18

Monday: Run 2-3 miles with the architect

Tuesday: Weights/yoga

Wednesday/Thursday: Bike to work at least one of those days.

Friday: Easy 3-4 miles in the morning, weights in the afternoon.

Saturday: Bike 20ish miles, swim 30 minutes

Sunday: Easy 4-5 mile run.

Again – the whole plan is to just take it easy & start easing back into a workable schedule. I see my nutritionist on Friday, and we’re going to figure out the plan for the next few months.  The most challening thing is going to be reminding myself that the cooler weather & the rain are really no excuse for not getting outside. I only do treadmills if I have no other choice.

  1. Sounds like a pretty good plan. I vote you pick up some sweet Under Armour cold weather gear and get ready!

    • I have all my cold weather running gear ready to be brought out – and feel happy that it seldom gets too cold to run outside, here. My biggest issue in the autumn is getting used to the rain – once I get used to that, everything else is EASY! 🙂

  2. I’ve gotten to the point in my training where I’m with you on the treadmill thing. And I’ve got (a fairly nice) one in my living room behind my freakin’ couch! Lately, it makes a handy place to hang up my running gear to dry.

  3. Yeah for keeping me in line 🙂 You really whipped me into shape!

  4. Dude, you were pretty active that first week. I didn’t do jack shit but eat Haggen Dazs ice cream bars. You think I’m joking, but I’m not. Costco size. Gone. less than 48 hours. I’m still not running this week either.

    Great plan for this week. Good luck!

  5. Sounds like a good plan to start back.

    I’m on the weightloss train too as well as the weights train =). I should yoga too but we’ll see.

  6. I am so behind, but I just wanted to congratulate you on your marathon!! I read your report and you did great!
