Pack my lunch every day for work
Go to the gym Monday/Wednesday/Friday for strength training
Run at least five days a week (Monday through Friday is ideal)
Cut back on the junk food
Keep track of my calories and exercise using the Lose It app on my phone and/or Nook Color
I generally work Wednesday through Sunday. On Wednesdays, I will plan on running in the morning before work and then driving STRAIGHT to the gym after work to do my strength training. On Fridays I work half days right now so I will drive straight to the gym, do my strength training and then do my run. However if I start my run after I workout, I will just leave from the gym because every route that I have created has me running pass my gym. I could make that my start/end point.
Besides wanting to get into better shape and be healthier, I want to work towards running a half marathon. I do not want to do it for time, I just want to be able to complete one. I want to be able to run the whole thing without stopping. Even if I have to slow my pace just to be able to complete it, I will! I have signed myself up for another 5K...and it is a color run! It is August 12, 2012 at 9am in Seattle. I know two people who have also signed up. I cannot wait! It is going to be a blast. Now as for the half marathon, I am thinking that I will either aim for the half in Eugene or the Rock and Roll half in Seattle next Summer.
I plan on at least starting the running before work thing tomorrow morning so I am going to hit the sack and try and get some sleep! Until next time!
