My PLAN for BLC 22 is in place!

Sunday, May 19, 2013

My running progress has been successful. I am on week 3 in my 10K training schedule, and I feel at ease with it. emoticon This is a relief for me. I so wanted to find just the right pace/distance to lightly challenge myself without injuring myself. I've chosen a SLOW emoticon routine, and I've embraced it. The 2 miles are easy now and I feel refreshed afterwards.
Isn't it a funny thing? ME - embracing SLOW? LOL!! emoticon
I must be "settling in" my old age...:::Bahahaha! emoticon ( I'll be 37 June 6th. ) No but really, I have discovered that I run because I love it.

I heard the first stirrings of the new BLC Round 22 approaching, and knew I needed to form a PLAN that would work with my 10K training.

Right now, I have a set schedule that has a rest day on Friday ( but then I wouldn't be contributing many FM to our weekend challenge ) ...:::and my shortest day is Tuesday ( but that would destroy my chance to contribute LCW minutes)...:::So here's my new PLAN!

Sunday:: emoticon 2 miles, short run
Monday:: emoticon emoticon Aerobics/dance/calisthenics
Tuesday:: emoticon 4 miles, Long run
Wednesday:: emoticon rest day
Thursday:: emoticon emoticon Circuit Training ...always at least 30 sets of pure iron.
Friday:: emoticon 2 miles, short run
Saturday:: emoticon emoticon More Circuit Training...:::Woo-woo!

That settles it....enabling me to give the MOST points possible for my Team, the Panthers while sticking to my training schedule. I'm satisfied with my schedule, and glad I have found the best way to contribute to my team.

I love it when PLAN comes together! emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon Note: I haven't increased my long run yet......::but I will attempt to this week...:::going from 4 - 5 miles. No personal competitive expectations either. Just a desire to comfortably increase my distance. Hope I can do it!
You know what? I have found this "settling in" a good thing for me. It has given me a great sense of personal balance and stability.....::allowing me to make more progress.
