Training Goals – 11/30/09 – 12/6/09

Not only is it the last day of November, today is also my 30th day in a row of blogging! Once again, I completed NaBloPoMo! Go me!

And now – the recap:

Goals: 11/23 – 11/29

Monday: Mild cardio – 45 minutes or so – FAIL! I rested instead.

Tuesday: Post-work hill run with the Ambitious One! WOO! – SUCCESS! And it was good!

Wednesday: weights (45 minutes) + bike – FAIL! Too much stuff (school, sports massage & meal prep)

Thursday: Turkey Trot! 10K (slowwwwww 10K) – Half success. I trotted only 5K.

Friday: weights (45 minutes) + home yoga – SUCCESS (mostly); I did the weights & ran 2 miles

Saturday: Spin class at 10 AM. – FAIL (kind of). Instead I took advantage of the beautimous weather (and my soreness from the previous day & did 2 hours of gardening. I planted 75 tulips, which meant I did 75 squats, so that counts for something, right?)

Sunday: Run – 5-6 miles. – FAIL (kind of). I again took advantage of the beautiful weather to finish up my gardening for fall – planted 6 rows of onions & garlic, spread mulch, tilled the garden (without a tiller, because I am poor hardcore) and weeded. Two more hours of yardwork counts for something!

Wow – this is a week of fail. Although I still got 6.5 hours of exercise, because I totally count yardwork as exercise.

So – on to this week.

Monday: Bike to work (so far so good); and if I have any energy upon returning home, run. I would really like to get 5.25 miles in tonight to round out my November mileage (which is pretty pathetic).

Tuesday: Bike to work & post-work weights.

Wednesday: Post-work run.

Thursday: I am again committing to my 5:30 spin class that I haven’t yet made it to even once.

Friday: Rest day.

Saturday: Easy run

Sunday: I’m hoping for a nice easy walk; nothing major.

I would also like to try to fit in another day of weights at some point. We’ll see how that goes.  Again, just trying for about 7 hours of exercise this week.
