Happy Monday everyone!
This past week I was in charge of all of the chauffeuring to kids sports so I didn’t have the best fitness week. All I managed was one measly 5k run. On the plus side it was one of my fastest runs in quite a while, so I’ll take that as a win. Last month’s higher mileage and commitment to the heart rate training plan is helping me get my speed back. Unfortuntely what it hasn’t done is make the number on the scale any lower. I think nutrition and strength training will be the secret weapon for weight management/weight loss next year.
This month my goal is to be kinder to myself. I could stress out and beat myself up over missed workouts this month, or I can forgive myself. This is the busiest month of the year for me. Work is busy, the kids sports are busy, and then there’s the whole gift buying, gift wrapping, house decorating, Christmas cooking thing. I want to listen to that voice in my head that tells me that I CAN lose the weight I gained last year… only instead of trying to lose the weight this month I’m going to be realistic . December isn’t the right month to anticipate any progress, and that’s ok.
I’m not going to beat myself up. I have way too much going on to feel bad about not doing everything I want to do, instead I will congratulate myself for what I do.
This week’s training plan:
Because last week’s training plan didn’t happen, I’ll give it another go this week:
Monday: 55 minute moderate intensity run (50 min 70-80% max HR)
Wednesday: 40 min intervals (3 x 5 min @80% max, 2 min 70%)
Thur: 5k easy lunch run
Friday: 40 minute easy run (20 min 70-80% max HR)
Sunday: 75 min easy run (60-70% max HR)
Have a healthy and active week everybody!
