Back in the old days (pre-pregnancy & pre-foot surgery), I did training goals every week & then reported on them to keep myself on track.
As I am now slowly (really, really slowly) easing back into an exercise routine, I am going to do that again. This will serve partially as a motivator to myself (if I put it out there, I’m much more likely to follow through) as well as a invitation for anyone to tell me that I’m getting crazy if it appears that I have forgotten my slow & sensible plans.
I tend to be an all or nothing person – and get a leetle carried away at times with the ambition. Also, since I have never trained and been a mom at the same time, I do welcome some advice in balancing everything! Also, sports bra advice would be welcome. I’m not actually sure there are sports bras big enough anymore – there are some truly terrifying things happening under my shirt. (Well, terrifying to me – the guys I live with don’t seem frightened.)
So – training goals will run Friday – Thursday. I don’t work on Fridays, so it’s a good start to my training week, I think.
Training Goals – 5/11/12 – 5/17/12
Friday: Walk 1 mile
Saturday: Rest/enjoy parade/walk downtown
Sunday: Walk 1 mile
Tuesday: Walk 1.5 miles
Thursday: Walk 1.5 miles
That seems reasonable, right? Total mileage for the week: 5 miles
Next week, I will add in swimming & yoga! Yay! And soon, I will start couch-to-5King, and Alvie & I will be using the Bob stroller (that’s when you’ll know we’re hard core).
