So if you haven't seen on Facebook yet, I have decided to train to walk the Columbus 1/2 marathon on Oct 21st. Yes, I may have lost my mind, but I'm actually REALLY excited about this! I really enjoy the race atmosphere & I also do a lot better with my work outs when I have a goal to work towards & a plan to follow.
So I joined the local Marathoners in Training group & planned to start with them at their kick off on June 2nd. Yeah, that didn't happen. Looking back I realize deciding to start this big plan the weekend I was hosting 2 birthday parties & having the first week be the first time I was alone all day every day with 3 kids wasn't my smartest scheduling decision.
So I did what I could this week. I also decided that Zak looks old enough to sneak him into the gym daycare (their rule is 6 months & older), so that helped give me more times to work out, but also gave me more options including Zumba classes which I LOVE! All in all it was a pretty good week exercise wise. Not exactly what I had planned for the walking, but I have 4 1/2 months still & plenty more miles to get where I need to be.
Here is my exercise for the past week with my training week 1 in bold:
Mon 6/4 - 2.1 miles in neighborhood, 25 minute Wii Fit workout
Tues 6/5 - 35 minute Wii Fit workout
Weds 6/6 - 2.1 miles in neighborhood, Zumba class
Thurs 6/7 - Dance Jam class
Fri 6/8 - rest day (not intentional, but I worked 2 more hours than I thought)
Sat 6/9 - 2 miles on treadmill, 15 minutes on stationary bike
Sun 6/10 - rest day
Stay tuned for weekly updates & please hold me accountable!!
