Train to Adapt – My Monthly Training Game Plan + #PushItGang Challenge
Yesterday, as I was blogging away like a good little blogger, I glanced over at my run training plan (the longest ever, that started in July but was to carry me to the start of half season in November) and immediately had a “whoops” moment.
Monday September 24 read:
Start up here – add in a 3 mile moderate run
See. Whoops. My B, coach.
It was already time for me to pretty much head out the door and go into work so I figured I’d try to get the run in with my cross training workout on lunch break or after work. Well, since it was a usual
manic Monday, there was no lunch break to be found which meant I was trekkin’ it to el gym after work. I’m telling you, now that I’m involved with FitFluential and FitApproach and always chat online with my other buds in training, I make NO excuse to cut out a run/workout…and that, my friends, is awesomesauce 😉
Monday’s workout: 3 moderate miles (bookin’ it on the dreadmill around 8:55 pace average) + AMRAP (as many reps as possible) for 1:00 each: pushups, weighted shoulder work, ab work and then this fun stuff:
mashed cauliflower with lean steak & turkey pepperoni, sorry didn’t abide my Meatless Monday
We had way too much cauliflower and not enough cheese (someone’s been sneaking that because I know the package wasn’t open) so the ‘crust’ didn’t bind well, but we had a great
pile of pushed veggies din-din none-the-less.
This morning I was back on my game with the early run schedule! I fell asleep last night after a Twitter chat to wake up at 430am, as usual, to meet up with the girls for a moderate-tempo Tuesday run.
Tuesday’s workout: 5 miles at moderate-tempo pace
Funny that I chose my ‘breathe’ headband to wear because it was COOL outside! I repeat, COOL outside – in Florida – in September – holy canollis! The humidity was still there, but these little lungs of mine were so grateful! Usually I feel dependent on my inhaler running in the summer going into Fall (because the weather here doesn’t change much from hot to kinda-hot) but today was a different day.
Hello Fall, oh how I’ve missed you 🙂
How is your training plan working out?
Are you enjoying running more with this awesome new weather?
