Happy Monday everyone!
I have a big bunch of goal races coming up, and although I put together a training plan, I haven’t stuck to it at all. I ‘m actually at the point now where I need to re-evaluate my plan, and possibly create a new one because jumping into it would probably get me injured (again). Ahhhhhhh summer … It’s so easily to get derailed by skipping out on training to do fun, social things like Friday afternoon lunch trips with my co-workers to Menchie’s …
Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve been getting in some exercise… This past week I went to spinning twice, and ran twice but it’s hardly enough to call “training”, maybe not even enough to call maintenance. (Especially with all of the ice cream eating I’ve been doing lately *grin*). But after a few weeks of gluttony, I’m totally ready to begin focusing on the journey towards my first triathlon in 10 years!
Here’s this week’s training plan:
Monday: 40 min lunch spinning class – DONE
Tuesday: 6k lunch run, lap swimming in the pool after work
Thursday: 40 min lunch spinning class, open water swim after work
Friday: 6k lunch run
Saturday: Camping with the girls – maybe some swimming, lots of running and playing
Sunday: 10 k run
And this week’s meal planning:
Protein smoothies for breakfast
Fruit for a mid-morning/pre-workout snack
Tuna salad and greek yogurt for lunch
Dinners: Mon – Chicken strips and potatoes, Tues – Spaghetti and meatballs with caesar salad, Wed – Spinach and chicken salad, Thurs – Sandwich night, Fri – ??? (we’ll be camping!).
I’m really excited to get back to training because being injured over the past little while has left me falling back in to my bad habits of skipping workouts, and snacking on WAY too much junk. I also greatly enjoy training – I love challenging myself and competing with myself on every run and at each spinning class – can I spin further than I did at my last class?
Any ways, that’s my plan for this week…
