I only have 6 weeks until I have to pull 6.2 miles out of my
You mean there's not 10 days in a week? Whhhhaaat??
And while I am loving the I'm a better me feeling of doing something for myself, I absolutely refuse to be less of a mom & a wife for it. Sure, for a bit is fine, [we all need a break every now and then, right?] but every day I am not okay with.
I was so exhausted & tired, I couldn't wait for Lillie to go to bed [I work full-time so it's not like I get to see her all the time anyhow] and I crossed my fingers on more than one occasion that Alfred would have to work late and would be able to grab dinner on the road.
So, doing Insanity & running is out of the question for me. And since I've never run farther than 4.5 miles, I know I need to train for this. I want to train for this. Because a good foundation will really help push me to do my 13.1 miles come January - mentally & physically. And who knows, maybe I'll go damage myself enough into thinking I can actually do a full marathon.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now, Tamara.
Based on what I've found [for free!] online this is what I've put together.
damn 5k Saturday I know I'm going to have to put a lot more into running more miles.
Ideas are welcome, seriously, I'm one of those people that do better with more information than with less. When I was pregnant I'm pretty sure I scoured every corner of the Internet learning about birthing babies. [It was not pretty.] But I felt so prepared I wasn't even worried about it when it came down to pushing. And bam, had the kid in 30 minutes.
Also, cross training? I know I need to do it. I've gone to some pilates/yoga classes before, I've walked, I've ellipticalled, I've done some weight training - but honestly, that's the part that confuses me more than anything. I just don't know what to do.
Most of my workouts are scheduled during the work week because the lunch hour is my time. When I get home the last thing I want to do is change clothes and work out. Especially if the kid is pooping on people's floors and the husband is wanting some dinner. And it's really convenient seeing as I only work about 50 feet from a gym, so uh, no excuse. I mean, I may smell and look a hot mess afterwards, but damn, you know you be checking out this ass!
The plan starts on Monday. I've printed off a copy for my office and my fridge at home.
But as for this weekend, I'll just give into amazing baby shower food tomorrow for the Emilie and sun time in the pool on Sunday with some awesome friends. [And I wonder why I suck at running! ha!]
I hope you all have an amazing weekend!
