Time to start training for the Pasadena Rock'n Roll Half! Yip!

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Thought I better map out a plan for the Half Marathon in February. I have 11 weeks until the event so should be able to take the mileage up slowly. I typically run twice a week but need to up that and run at least 3 days a week. My work schedule has been cut to just 4 days a week since it has been so slow... so that will help. I saw a cute graphic that Peanut Butter Fingers (one of the fitness blogs I follow) put together so I thought I would do something similar. Here is my plan!

I'm not sure if you will be able to actually see the info in the picture, but I plan on a 3-5mi run on Sun, Cardio on Monday, Strength Training and a 5 mi run on Tue, Cardio on Wed, Strength and long run on Thurs, (starting with 6 mi and increasing to 12 miles by Feb 3rd), Cardio on Fri and REST on Sat. Rest on Sat is actually sort of funny since I usually work a 6 hour shift on Sat and that is one of our busiest days... but that is fine since I still have to meet my minimum Nike Fuelband goal of course!

I'm excited about setting 2013 goals and have started to work on mapping out a few events for the year. I'll post more about 2013 plans as I get things more defined.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off the Weight Watchers to hear about the new Weight Watchers 360 program being rolled out this week. I've been with WW now for over 5 years and been Lifetime for more than 3. They like to tweak the program every year or two I think so people will buy new cookbooks and what not. It is a business after all!

    Wow...you are a go getter my dear Rhonda! I'm just so proud of you! You have really come a long, long way and you are still accomplishing even MORE! I'm still loving my fitbit...it really challenges me to get as many steps in as I possibly can each day. And the fact that it measures stairs that you climb is awesome for me too. I have stopped the sleep mode...it's pretty consistent, about 80%-90% sleep efficiency...and it kind of bugs me to wear the wristband to bed at night. So maybe it's overkill for that option.

    We bought fitbits for our very health oriented friends that we are going to be spending Christmas in Des Moines with. And as long as I was at it..I bought them the Aria wireless scale too...so cool..measures body fat as well as weight. My body fat was a WAKE UP call...wayyyy to much...wayyyy! emoticon I know the only way to get that number down is to build muscle...wowsa...I never thought of myself pumping weights at this age! emoticon emoticon But...you do what you've gotta do..right?
