I didn’t work out for a week!
Unacceptable, I know! But that all changed last night when I hit the gym for day one of my training plan!
That’s the other thing you don’t do. Don’t procrastinate on your training plan!
After realizing I only had 31 weeks until race day I knew I had to get into action and put together a plan, on paper! I took to the internet and googled Hal Higdon. Using 3 of his training plans, for different distances, I found myself a starting point and jumped into action.
By 9:30pm on Tuesday I was enraged with work frustrations. After clocking out from work Alex and I headed to our gym so I could sweat it out. Let me tell you, that was the best workout in a long time!
Day one called for a 1.5 mile run. I stepped on the treadmill, set the speed to 3mph and started my warm up. Once I reached 5 minutes I upped it to 3.5mph and by 10 minutes I was jogging at a comfortable 4mph pace. I felt strong and wanted to push my distance. In the end I stuck with plan so I don’t over do it.
The point here is that I broke the non-workout streak and made my plans turn into actions. That’s the point of this healthiness journey too, you know? Making our plans turn into actions. Doing, not just saying (or typing).
Don’t do what I did and become action-less in your own plans, future.
I’m wrapping it up here because it’s time for me to head to class! (Side note: I wish I could be a full time student again)
I’ll leave you with a sweaty and sexy picture for last night, then I will be back later to fully outline the training plan I have in mind. And I’ll welcome any suggestions from those runners more experienced than I.
