WEEK ONE PLAN & RESULTS
Weight Loss - Goal -2.0 lbs. • Lost -0.8. I was doing well until our Packer party on Sat...
Week Miles - Goal 31 miles. • Actual 30 done.
Nutrition - Plan healthy meals and track calories. • Fail. I never found time to plan meals and grocery shop accordingly. Tracking calories was hit and miss. I start the day well and then got sloppy in the afternoon.
Challenges - #plankaday #wallsit #pushups #squatathon. • Completed all challenges daily except for the wallsit. I had some sore quad muscles and chose to skip that several days to give my quads time to repair.
Mon - Interval Run, Spinning • Unable to hit dictated paces of Intervals, but workouts complete.
Tues - Yoga, BoxMania, Spinning, Core • Everything complete except Yoga.
Wed - Tempo Run, Easy Run with Sole Sisters • I woke exhausted and with sore muscles from the triple cross-train on Tues. I decided to delay my Tempo Run a day, but completed the easy evening run.
Thurs - Swim • Fail. Still sore muscles, I took a complete rest day.
Fri - Yoga, Spinning • Instead of Yoga in the am, I knocked out that Tempo Run. It was difficult but I was pleased with the result. Skipped Spinning in the evening to rest up for the Long Run.
Sat - Long Run • Best workout of the week. Great weather and great friends to run 13.1 miles. Only 5 seconds off the goal pace.
Sun - Easy Run, Spinning • Started off the morning instructing Spin class and hoped on the treadmill afterward for an easy 2 miles.
this plan would be challenging for me. Trying to do weight loss along with it, even tougher. But I am determined to make it work. Sunday afternoon, I sat down to plan out Week Two. Taking into consideration the things I learned last week, I adjusted and tweeked the weekly goals.
Biggest lesson after last week was to change the cross training. While I enjoyed the BoxMania class last week, it was an impact workout on my legs. The roundhouse kicks made my hips hurt for days and my quads were jarred and sore from hitting the targets. I was expecting the class to be more of an arm workout rather than legs. Nope! So I've decided to replace that class with an less impact activity like swimming. I signed up for two swim sessions this week, and will take my boxing back to my home bag to focus on arms. I need my legs to be rested and ready for the "three key runs". Those remain the most important workouts of the week.
I also went grocery shopping and have made out a plan for healthy dinners this week based off the food I have in the house. No excuses. Round One of the Run Your Ass Off Challenge ends in two weeks and I have almost 4 pounds to eliminate yet to get a share of the $7460 pot. THAT is incentive to get serious.
How was your training and diet last week? Got a plan ready for this week?
