I decided that I want to get up early and hit the gym every single morning this week. This is not something I ever do (I’m more of a *SNOOZE* kind of girl) so I knew it wouldn’t be easy.
So far, I’m two for two!
With the start of this latest round of marathon training and increasing mileage looming before me on the calendar, I started wondering how on earth I am going to be able to maintain my regular cross-training (which I am determined to do this time around). The solution: run or workout in the mornings before work once or twice a week and/or incorporate more doubles. The next couple of weeks will be my breaking-in period while the mileage is still relatively low.
As for today… I completed a Triple!
AM: gym – 30 minutes cardio (elliptical and stair-climber)
LUNCH: run – 6K with 1000 m hard/easy intervals (yay impromptu speed work!)
hard intervals completed @ 4:40, 4:38, 4:29
PM: gym – 1h aerobics/strength fitness class
Tuesday Triple Success! And now it’s time to
pass out on the couch make dinner and watch The Biggest Loser.
