I have a plan and I'm gonna stick to it!!

Saturday, November 23, 2013

I have been poking along riding my bike, going to the gym sometimes, and walking with my dog. It has been working pretty well so far but I want to reach a goal. It will require me to be more diligent with my exercise plan. One are of opportunity for me is the morning. I am NOT a morning person but I don't have to be at work until 10 am. If I could get up at 6:30 then I could work out, walk the dog, shower, and get to work on time! (Imagine that!!) I have trouble getting out of bed and I hit snooze 100 times. This week, I am going to move my alarm to the other side of the bedroom so I have to get out of bed and I WILL go to the gym!

I want to jog/run a 5k on Jan 1st. To do that, I have to finish the Rookie Running program. I have been stuck on week 4. I did day 2 of week 4 today and I was really easy. I don't know why. So if I train diligently until 1/1/14 I should be able to run/jog the 5K.

The next goal is the Esprit de She Duathon in May. I have a friend that has given me some training tips but the first step is to lengthen the duration I can run.

Tomorrow is my 30+ mile bike ride and Monday I will complete day 3 of week 4 of the Rookie Running program.

    I'm not a morning person either, but in March I tried out morning workouts, and I haven't looked back since! It just really works for me for some strange reason. Good luck with C25k, I need to get back on that wagon myself, I've got a 10k at the end of March I'd like to run! emoticon

    Heh heh ... when I read, " ... and I hit snooze 100 times." it made me laugh.

    At any rate, I hope you can figure out how to get yourself up on time ... I think once you do it a few times you'll find it's easier to do. (I myself wake at some horrid hour and go to Spin at times ... and I start work at 6:30am)

    By the way, I am planning to do a Duatholon in May too!

    Sounds like you'll have little problem meeting your 1/1/14 goal. Keep it up.
