I hope all of the moms out there had a fabulous Mother's Day! I enjoyed a low key, restful day hanging out with the kids. Prior to leaving for Ragnar, Ward had asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day, knowing I would be returning home either super late Saturday evening or incredibly earlier Sunday morning. I told him it would be the best Mother's Day if I came home to a clean house and was able to just rest and hang out on Sunday.
Let me tell you, a relaxing day of doing hardly anything, was perfect. I loved hanging out with the kids. Sadly, Ward had to work. But I at least got to spend some time with him when he came home.
I updated you last Wednesday with my workouts. The only running I've done between then and now was Ragnar. I logged 13 miles over those two days and only a few hours of sleep. I took yesterday off completely. Now today I'm back at it with a new plan.
There's no time like right now to start something new. Beginning today is my official Get My Rear in Gear plan. I have scheduled week #1 with workouts and am going to be adding to this schedule as the week progresses.
- Bye bye jiggly belly & hello stronger core
- Improved upper body (chest, arms, back)
- Stronger legs - keeping away that knee injury!
- Faster half marathon time (goal sub 1:44 this year)
To make this happen, each day will have a Core, Strength, and Cardio workout. The cardio will vary with easy runs, long runs, and speed/hill work. My core and strength workouts will come from Melissa Bender as well as my own touches. I've been on the whatever schedule for far too long and while I enjoyed it, I'm not getting any better. In order to see some kind of improvement, I need to kick it up a notch.
And as they say, abs are made in the kitchen. I've been eating like I'm training for a marathon and then some. As a result, I've packed on a few pounds. So that's changing as well. I'm trying out eMeals with a clean eating menu plan. Love that!
So here it is! Day 1. Let's go! I'm putting my #BESTFOOT forward
What are your goals?
Do you seize the day and just start a new plan right away or do you
wait for a Monday or a new month?
