A new month, a new challenge...
This month I am actually planning to incorporate weight training with half marathon training. I hope I can do this since marathon training wiped me out from even thinking about doing weights once I got into those long runs over 10 miles... I'll be following a plan from Runnersworld.com, from the Smart Coach program. It's pretty cool. You enter in a previous event finish time and that distance, then the next planned event's distance and how many weeks you want to train. It prints out a training schedule based that info. Initially, I printed out a 10 week training schedule but I'll probably do the 8 week schedule since it's a half marathon I'm training for.
I'm not sure when I'll get in some sort of workout today, but I'm feeling like I really need one. I've got a case of the fluffies.
I finally found Yourself! Fitness for Playstation 2 on Ebay. I purchased it for about $30. It came in yesterday and I have yet to view it, but I've heard great reviews about it. I suppose it could be a great crosstraining/non-running day workout.
All is quiet on the western front... I'm playing nurse to my daughter today, who just had her wisdom teeth removed.
She's fine, just sleepy and dopey from the anesthesia.
