This Week I Will 3

A review of last week’s goals:

>>Take a daily multivitamin. Check! I’m continuing with my keep them in eyesight plan to hope my habit is easily reformed.
>>Core workout: completed!
>>Three training runs: boom. boom. boom. Each was a-okay in it’s own right. I’ve forgotten how much I love short intervals of run fast and walk to recover.  Gladly would train that way 90% of my runs if I didn’t want the strength that variety provides.
>>Take a real lunch break. Not a total failure, but most days of the week I worked through lunch to some extent; most of the time fitting in HLS work while I ate at the office.
>>Hydrate: rocked it. I’ve recently realized that I drink more water during the day if I have a large straw-less bottle at my side at all times.  I’m currently refilling a 1.5 liter plastic bottle and drinking 3-4 of them a day! 
>>Complete a full strength training work out: I stuck with a 15 minute arm workout in an old issue of Women’s Health Magazine I have  been meaning a try.  It was a short workout, but I made sure to finish each rep and kept my motions controlled and complete.
>>8+ hours of sleep: if I didn’t make this goal, I was within minutes.

All in all, I felt like I made fairly good decisions throughout the week. Let’s carry that momentum on, shall we?


This Week I Will:

Finalize my #SuperSummer Plan.  If you want a fun challenge [with adorable free printable downloads!!] for striving towards a healthy mind and body this summer, I suggest you read this introduction post from Cassie of Back to Her Roots, and when you’re quickly ready to jump on board, get acquainted with the how-to and free resources provided for your participation.  I spent time this weekend working on my own #supersummer plan and will definitely be ready with my lists and reward ideas comes June 1 when the challenge officially kicks off.

Take a FULL REST DAY!!!. See all those exclamation marks? That means I’m serious. I’ve got a busy, busy week ahead of me in both my office life [we’re in the middle of a bunch of HUGE projects at the moment, so it feels like EVERY week is just a bit more stressful than the one before it.  It’s funny, too, because every Friday I pretend like “oh, FINALLY! Next week will be so much better!” and it never.fucking.happens.] and with HLS stuffs, too.  Also, with my training slowly increasing, I want to make sure I’m making FULL REST days a priority for me, at least once every other weekend.  One full day of no obligations is now a necessity.  I’m making it happen.

3 Training Runs on the Plan. For each week of my #PRorBust training plan, I have written a post-in note, to-do task list style, listing the running and strength workouts I want to complete for that week.  This week on the running plan I have a speedwork session, a 3 mile long interval session of a quarter mile recovery after three quarters of a mile run, and a 45 minute easy run.

Read from a book daily. I have been pretty consistent at reading once or twice a week.  I’ve still got A LOT of pages left in the #hlbbookclub May selection, The Interestings. And not because I’m not loving the book – I AM! I just haven’t made taking the time to read a priority. That’s changing this week as I pledge to take some time to read from my book each day this week.

Conquer 2 Strength Training Workouts. I actually have three strength workouts on the #PRorBust plan this week, but one is simply a few moves I came across in an issue of Runner’s World that suggest you do the exercises after 1-2 of your runs each week. I have two workouts I’ve yet to try marketed in various Women’s Health Magazines to test out this week, too.
