Really, where does the time go??? Merry belated Christmas!!
This Monday, December 31st, will start the 30-week "Be Iron-fit" plan. Let the craziness begin....Actually, the craziness will begin the week of Jan 7th when the kids go back to school. The early, early mornings, the zombie-like evenings as I try to get the kids to bed. The trying to squeeze a workout in between meetings. The craziness that I hate to love :).
I really am going to try to get all my workouts that I plan in during the next 3 weeks. I think the key is planning correctly. Sometimes I plan a workout and say I'll squeeze it in during the day, knowing I probably won't - BAD PLANNING. Need to plan for each workout when I know I can get it in. I know stuff will come up out of my control - sick kids, sick mommy or daddy, etc. But need to get all the workouts in that I CAN CONTROL.
Week 2 - Over all a pretty good week. I am having problems getting the swims in because of my 6 AM calls every morning. I got one in right before I picked up my 4-year old from school (pool is right next to his school). If I continue to have 6 AM calls, will need to do this more often.
Monday - REST
Run - 6.7 total miles with 3 X 1 mile repeats. Adding speed run training early because of Napa Marathon
Strength - 25 minutes of strength training - pushups, weights.
