Sept 1st – New Training Goals
I did a vlog after a run but I have that stupid delay in my video again. I need technical assistance ;( I don’t like to feel like a bad Jackie Chan video so I don’t know what I did to piss off the YouTube Gods.
Welcome to September 1st which marks the end of Amy’s lazy month post Chicago Half and starts my 13 wks of training to the Vegas half. I am outlining what I am aiming to do better the second time around in my lessons learned.
- Gotta track my actual vs. my plan. NOTE TO SELF: two times a week did not cut it for me! I used the Hal Higdon novice program but only did the one short and one long. I need to move it up to 3x/week.
- Slow down the weights. I was doing too heavy and I sometimes would be so sore that I didn’t want to run. This month I am going to try a TRX total body workout 2x/week so hopefully there aren’t those days when I hurt so bad I can’t run
- Go for distance not time! I was always watching how fast I ran that mile or this one. I need to not care and go until I complete the distance on my plan. The consistency should bring the time along.
- I need a buddy For the long runs and for sticking to the nutrition side. I can blame the summer for too many libations but this time I am really trying to not over indulge as the rule instead of the exception. I will now insert a mile instead of a glass of wine when I have job stress 😉 *ok I will TRY my very best*
So that is what I am kicking off today. Look forward to sharing the progress and keeping each other on track.
Send me to your blog or leave a comment and let me know what you are shooting for!
(To my sister Missy – so proud of you that you are kicking it with some Couch to 5K! KEEP IT UP!!!)
