She said I need a goal and I made plans...I think in the comments of my previous post to go "for a walk". She has a lot more events coming up that she is prepping for but I am gearing up for the 1/2 marathon I signed up for...who knows what else will get added to the mix before October. We met at the half way point between our two houses and walked a loop twice totalling 10 km in under 2 hours. Not bad for our first session. She is nursing a badly sprained ankle back to health and I haven't done walking/running cardio for a few weeks now so it was a good start.
We started discussing a training plan that I can use to begin my marathon training (I am going to refer to it as a "marathon" for now on as noting the 1/2 every time is annoying...and maybe it will motivate me one day to do a full lol). I signed up for booty camp for April and hope to get a mini camp in for March as well. But in addition to that she recommended that on Tuesdays I do a 30 min run, Thursdays was I think run as much as I can for 5km to start? and Saturdays do a long run and Sundays will be the mental training of doing the activity for 3 hours. So I think that will be the plan for Tuesdays and Saturdays for now as I still love going to my yoga class on Thursday nights, I can't give that up and really shouldn't...for my and my husbands own good lol. But I could still get a run in if I ever decided to get my butt out of bed early enough in the morning...it's not like I have far to go to get on the treadmill so maybe that is the best option and Sundays are a great way to keep my head in the game and catch up with her as much as possible.
I made a shake before the walk using banana berry protein powder, almond milk and frozen (but thawed cause I hate REALLY cold food but love drinking and eating pipping hot food...weird I know) bananas and strawberries. I won't do that combo again or I have to change something because it totally tasted like the strawberry penicillin I use to get as a kid...Suggestions are welcome! I usually use a berry blend that makes it a bit more tart tasting and maybe that's what was missing.
have a great long weekend for those enjoying the "family day" holiday tomorrow!
