5K/10K Training Tuesday: Week One
Monday: 0.5 miles + Zumba
Wednesday: 0.5 miles
Friday: 0.5 miles
This week really was about trying to get back in the rhythm and routine of working out again on a regular basis and for the most part I think I did okay. I managed to get by butt to spinning for the first time in about a month and I even faced the dreadmill.
One good thing about this is that I'm able to use both the training and the treadmill as motivation and inspiration for my book! So when I'm on the treadmill (like I was yesterday) and hating it, I just keep reminding myself You can use this later when you sit down in front of your computer. It helps, let me tell ya.
Luckily spring is around the corner so I'll be able to start going outside more, maybe even after work which is definitely new! For the past five years I've always had to work until 8 or 9 pm, but since starting my new job back in July I've had evenings free. It's going to take some adjustment to see if I like running at 6 pm versus 6 am so we'll see.
Want to join the fun? This week, my fellow Ambassador Emily is giving away a free entry to one of the races!
Love from the ashes,
