Now that our ski mini vacation is over and the buffet is behind me.. its time to get back to healthy eating this week. I really got off track last week, BIG TIME. Not to worry.. Today is a fresh start! I've got a plan to eat 1500 calories today. I just have to visualize all the big people at the buffet line.. oh yeah.. I don't want to be that person with the tummy that runs over!
Back to stretching and my daily exercises then off to the gym to run.
I've been thinking a lot about my running goals. It's usually all about the outcome, placing. I just read that goals should be more about the training to enjoy the process to get to the race. My training is pretty simple.. cross ramp Monday-Sunday, Soccer indoor 3 miles of speed Wednesday, weight training 3 days a week.. and mix in some Stationary biking or treadmill miles a few days a week. I also vary the incline to replicate hills as much as I can indoors. It's never the same as outdoor running and I do lose my fitness being indoors all winter long. Plus, I don't like to run fast but I do push the pace the last 2 minutes of my daily run.
When I think of new goals for this year.. My plan is to race in a dualthalon. Maybe get the family to join me! We would do it to stick together and not race each other because then it would not be about family. I want to make this all about having fun this year with no other goals then to do this as a fun family activity.
Don't tell Celina, but I'm going to convince her to do a lot more races with me. A fun mother daughter bonding time. She's already signed up for the Get Lucky Race. 4 miles. Our goal is to just stick together and walk if she needs a break or go really slow. I'm sure she can run the whole 4 miles we just need to start working on adding more running miles..from 2 up to 4 at a 10 minute mile pace. Slow and steady.. just to run for fun together!
