I now have more motivation to get running, to get my miles up and to up the frequency of my runs and workouts.
I got an email on Friday that I had been selected to run the Nike Women's 15K in Toronto. I'm pretty excited about it but it is 15K.
Between now and the end of June, I have 2 10k races, a 1k (possibly 5k) kids race, a try-a-tri and now a 15k. This is definitely the kick in the butt I need to get going.
Of course, the day I want to get going, I'm home with my two little munchkins because school and daycare are closed. This means a trip to McDonalds for lunch and haircuts in the afternoon and no gym time. I also need to hit up the grocery store at some point for some more fruit, veggies and milk. We're all out of fresh stuff since we were away for the past couple of days.
Instead of setting a workout plan for the week, I'm going to set some goals for April workouts.
Running - I need to be running at least four times a week to get my miles and stamina up. I'm hoping to do the 10K in April under 1:10 so I need to get to work.
Weights - I'm hoping to do weights twice a week
Swimming - I'm hoping to hit the pool at least once a week this month and then possibly up it as the try-a-tri gets closer.
The other big thing is the food (as always). After today's trip to McDonalds, healthy eating is definitely becoming a major a focus (more on that tomorrow). I need to lose some pounds if I'm going to set some PRs these next few months.
I hear some little boys screaming at each other, so that's my cue to get going!
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are ready to get back to the grind (like me)!
I'm linking up with Janice at Fitness Cheerleader and Rachel at Running Rachel for #MotivateMe Monday! Share your plans for the week there too!
