This week I officially start training for my third half marathon! YAY! I am so excited. I'm taking on a challenging training plan, it will be the hardest I've ever trained, and I'm going to love every minute (ok, maybe I'm gonna hate 800 repeats....lol) My amazing new friend Tara, who is a running coach and super rockstar runner herself (3:27 is her marathon PR, ya I told you she's a rockstar!) developed the plan for me. I'm going to start using my blog to journal my training right up to race day. Here is what my first week looks like:
Monday: Rest or XT
Tuesday: 4 miles including 6x100 meter strides
Wednesday: 3-4 easy miles
Thursday: 5 miles, including 1 mile warm-up, 3 miles at 7:15 pace, 1 mile cool down
Friday: Rest or XT
Saturday: 3-4 easy miles
Sunday: 8 miles at a slow pace
Total: 23-25 miles
Yesterday I did another bodyrock workout (of course), it was the 550 Rep Fat Massacre:
-backward lunge and kick-up (25 reps each leg)
-walk over push-up (50 reps)
-mountain climber (50 reps)
-sumo squats and knee up (50 reps)
-one leg bridge leg lift (25 reps each leg)
-side to side squat with leg lift (25 reps each leg)
-one arm tricep push-up (25 reps each arm)
-star crunch (50 reps)
-diagonal touch down (25 reps each side)
-side plank lift (25 reps each side)
-one leg wall sit and leg lift (25 reps each leg)
I definately felt the burn after that workout!
On today's agenda is my 4 mile run with 6x100 meter strides and another bodyrock workout. What is your workout today?
And I may have found a new favorite breakfast:
Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal
1/2 Cup soymilk
1/2 Cup of water
1/2 Cup of oats
1 Tbs of peanut butter
sprinkle of cinnamon
Bring the soymilk and water to a boil, add the banana, oats and pb. Then cook until the oats are how you like 'em. I don't like mushy oats, so I don't cook it too long. This was so yummy I literally wanted the bowl to never end and when it did I though about licking the bowl clean, however I did manage to refrain (this time)!
What is your favorite breakfast?
Have a great Tuesday!!! :)
