So a while back, I had been talking with a friend about what I did for training when I was training for races (half & full marathons.) For the life of me, I could not find those training journals...
....until today. It was the oddest thing but there it was right under my nose. The verdict? I did a lot of cardio. I biked, I ran, I did the elliptical (maintaining running pace) & then I tossed in a few weight workouts every few days. I did mostly upper/lower splits or full body workouts. Training days included 30 minutes of cardio & on non-training days included 45 minutes of cardio with abs added on (either at the gym or my ol' standby tape.) I should note that most weeks had 2 off days.
Where am I going with this? Well, I'm going to start doing it again. That schedule is when I felt my best. I was never exhausted, I was comfortable in my own skin, running races (my last full marathon is in this log) & I still gave myself rest days. I was also doing Weight Watchers at that time.
This is my rear view that I tried to do a while back but life didnt cooperate with me finding that journal. Now it's in hand & I will go back to what had me feeling my best.
Oh & to go along with the lines of one thing after another...today I slammed my hand on the doornob in my Dad's office leaving a lovely purple-ish lump. So my thought is that God really wants me to appreciate vacation when it rolls around. Trust me, I will, now can you take this headache away?!?
