After researching half marathon recovery I worked a recovery week into my training schedule so last week was full of a lot of Pilates, Yoga, and other stretching and strengthening exercises. Unfortunately they were also accompanied by too many cheat meals. Basically the "recovery" week reminded me that having a semi-short term goal is EXTREMELY important for me.
So, I registered for the AFLAC Iron Iron Girl Clearwater 15k, which will be held on April 10th! I was worried that I would have to scratch this race and do a shorter local one, since I STILL don't have a frigging job, but several people that I know are also running it and we are going to split the travel and lodging costs. The race course starts near Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach and runs over a causeway and back. The Clearwater area has some beautiful beaches, so this race should have some amazing views.
*Off topic: I cannot WAIT to see the Life series on Discovery!!!**
I only have 7 pounds left to reach my goal of losing 30 pounds by my 30th birthday and I want them gone so I HAVE to stick to my SparkProgram. In addition to focusing on getting my eating back under control with one cheat meal per week., my fitness plan for this week is:
Sun - Yoga
Mon - 10k run + Karen Voight's YogaSculpt
Tue - 4 mile run + Zumba class
Wed - Step class
Thu - 10k run + Strength (core and lower body)
Fri - 5k run + 30DS
Sat - Rest
