We have a big week ahead, lots of events that could challenge our dedication to fitness so I’m putting my plan out there in the hopes that it will keep me accountable.
Accountability is one of the best tools we have fitness and I’m going to lean heavily on it this week.
|Be accountable to yourself!|
The only “plan” I’m really following right now is the Runner’s World plan that got me through the Go! St. Louis run with a pretty strong performance for me. So I’ve dusted it off and started back on it for Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago in July. Based on that plan, this week should include:
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – 2 Miles
Wednesday – Rest
Thursday – 6 Miles with 4 miles at HMP
Friday – 2 Miles
Saturday – 3 Miles
Sunday – 9 Miles
But I always like to tweak the schedule because there’s no strength work built in and the last part of our week gets very busy so if I’m going to get the miles in I’m going to have to move things around.
I ran a long-ish run today so I’m not happy about taking away tomorrow’s rest day but all I’m going to do is move everything up a day and put my rest day on Friday since I know I won’t be getting to the gym or outside that day.
Someone asked me the other day why I don’t run in the mornings more and the honest answer is that it’s really hard for me to get up, get in a good workout then get ready for work and have my hair look presentable. I can get away with a bun every now and then but most of the time, I need to look professional and that really is a problem when it comes to morning workouts. I’ve thought about actually chopping my hair off in the hopes that it will free up my mornings more but whether or not it’s lack of commitment or my husbands begging not to cut it, I just haven’t.
So it’s really gonna look like this:
Monday – 2 Miles at goal 5K pace (8:30) & Core/TRX work
Tuesday – 60 Minute Cross Training (Bike Ride)
Wednesday – 6 Miles (4 Miles at HMP)
Thursday – 2 Miles (Morning Run)
Friday – Rest
Saturday – 3 Miles & Strength Work
Sunday – 9 Miles (Long and Slow)
Here’s to hoping your week is full of fitness and fun! Happy Monday!
