So enough about me talking about how Billy really is the best thing around, I am going to keep track of my training through this blog. So here goes.......
Monday 1/11: 7.5 Miles, incline 2% at 7.5 mph
Tuesday 1/12: Rest day, stair climber and eliptical
Wednesday 1/13: 1 mile warm up (6.5 MPH), 3 mile (8.5 MPH), 2 mile (8.0). Total-6 miles, I also taught a spin class after that.
Thursday 1/14: Today I am taking it easy at the gym. Elliptical and attempt some weights.
Friday 1/15: 10 miles baby! (8:28 minute miles) No school tomorrow... just a date with the treadmill. Then I get to meet Billy on campus for lunch and I am going to his chemistry class. WAHOO!
Saturday 1/16: Stair climber and I teach spin. I love doing the stair climber because it really makes me sweat and pant more than any other workout and obviously it is building up my cardiovascular endurance.
For the first time since in a long time I am working out NOT to loose weight or burn calories. I love the feeling of working out to accomplish a goal. With me loosing weight is never a good goal because I start getting down on myself that I am never good enough/skinny enough. With my new paradigm shift I love thinking about the race rather than calories. I love reading about the proper nutrition during training and I feel like I am eating healthy for the right reason and that is to supply by body with what it needs to preform at my best. By doing this I am no longer sabotaging myself to fail. Life is good!
After a long run during the summer.... ha imagine what I will look like after a marathon!
