I am 2 weeks out! 1st Half of 2017!
Time is ticking away and I cannot believe I am 2 weeks out to my first half marathon of 2017! Am I excited? As my hubby would say, do bears poop in the woods? That’s a yes, for the ladies that read my blog!
This half is really exciting for me. First off, it is an awesome event! If you missed it last year read my recap here. The swag is top-notch! And for those of you that have followed me for a while I started with Coach M last January. I think exactly at this time, 2 weeks out before the Celebration half. I am not a huge fan of running the same half twice but this will be a true measure and proof to myself that we are a combo that rocks! So, no pressure on myself at all! LOL!
Sunday on the plan: REST! If you are a football fan you know the Packers are in the playoffs! I got outside for a quick 40 minute walk before the insanity started. AVG HR 147 Packers are in it to win it!
Monday on the plan: 30 minutes cardio plus drills
What really happened: Did you see that Packer game? OMG!!! I got in a 30 minute walk after work AVG HR 118 but no drills, didn’t have the right bra on :).
What really happened: WAM BAM Thank you MA’AM!!!! 9:59/9:53!!!! AVG HR 159
Wednesday on the plan: REST! Can’t Stop! Hit yoga class- Slow Flow Yoga! The class ending pose was the pigeon pose- oh it felt so good! 60 minutes AVG HR 92
Thursday on the plan: 4 miles fast finish
What really happened: 11:56/10:25/10:01/9:52- fast finish it was! AVG HR 158
Friday on the plan: REST! Nailed it! I had the opportunity to try Home Chef subscription service so I made dinner at home! Click here if you would like $30 off your first box! My dish, French Onion Pasta bake, was delish!
Saturday on the plan: 12 easy miles
What really happened: I love it when Coach M puts the word easy and 12 together at the same time! I was a few minutes early so it was a great time to do some drills as my warm up and get all my body parts moving! It was a nice 63 degrees when my BRF and I started but it was also 95% humidity. It did not take long to work up a sweat. This was our first run together in a couple of weeks so we had lots to catch up on. AVG HR 159
The day was to pretty to pass up on a little more time outside. After a quick shower and a post run meal I jumped in my kayak and went out on the lake. This added a nice arm workout and a beautiful view! I love how I can track all my workouts on my Fitbit. This little excursion earned me 40 minutes in the fat burn zone with an AVG HR of 100. SWEET! I also earned this fun badge from Fitbit this week.
2 weeks out and I am feeling pretty good! It’s been a very active week and I have loved meeting some new women in the ZOOMA Run Love Challenge too!
