I set myself some lofty 2012 Goals and set up a training plan with rewards to make it a reality. I wasn't terribly strict with myself last week (since our 55 Day Weight Loss Challenge didn't start until Saturday). I looked at last week as a "weaning" week. Slowly slip the junk food out of the diet (aka empty the fridge!), build up my workouts and introduce myself to swimming. I managed to have one of the best weeks in months! I logged 30 run miles, 2 Spinning classes, 1 Yoga session, 3 Swim and 3 Ab workouts. Not too shabby.
Today begins strict discipline to the plan. I woke up early, got the kiddos off to school and headed out for a run to start my week. I ran with one of my Sole Sisters for 4 miles along the Peoria Riverfront, and then added on some fartleks for speed training. I hate them, but was actually in the mood today. My legs felt fresh from yesterday's rest day. As soon as I got home, I hopped on the bike and got in 7 miles (25 min) before I had to scurry off to pickup the little one from preschool.
Each week, I'll map out my schedule to meet the weekly workout goals. The mix of running and cross training will keep things fresh, ward off injury, and hopefully make me more well-rounded on fitness. Plus I find that the more cross-training I add to my routine, the more I look forward to the RUN!
