Back to Basics.

Friday, March 01, 2013

I've been running late all day today. I said I would blog in the morning, 11:20 is still am so I win right? emoticon

I had a decent run last night while the boys waked the dogs. I'm still able to do an 11 minute mile, not great but not bad. I'm only able to make about 2 miles and I have a 5K in one week! I'm hoping the adrenaline from the race will be enough to push me through.

The reason hubby and boy child had to walk the girls is that I just got some new shoes. They are a 3mm drop (whatever that means - I just run). They are extremely comfy but the girl at the store told me to put on about 8 to 10 miles to get the inserts "molded" to my feet. I'm worried the girls jerking me and/or the fact that I just run differently with them might mess up the molding process. So no running with the FPT for the next week.

I started this journey in March of last year. I've done well, I've also have some major derailments. As of today, I'm up 10 lbs. I know, I said I wasn't going to put the batteries back in until after my race next week - but I wanted a 1st of the month weight. So back to what got me success.

I'm really committed to getting back to basics this month. Measuring food, no eye-balling. And eating good food, not going out more than once a week. Daily cardio and ST, not just when I feel like it. Just all the stuff we learn in the beginning and for some reason I've slacked off on doing. Nothing special.

And no more Cadbury Eggs - there has to be crack in those things. Geesh!

Plan for the day:
2 sets (20 reps) Hip Flexors – A & B
2 sets (20 reps) Calf Raises – A & B
2 sets (20 reps) Forward Lunges – A & B
2 sets (20 reps) Bridges – A & B
2 sets (20 reps) Lying Abduction – A & B
2 sets (20 reps) Lying Leg Curls – A & B

100 squats
30 crunches
100 Burpees

and a 3 mile dog walk.

Have a great one everyone - Warm Wags!
