Cool Week 2 Plan: Week of Feb 27, 2012

Last week the training was good, I completed all my runs and cross training. The food didnt go so good. Was a little over on calories on Thursday and got completely derailed on Friday. So hopefully I can do better this week on the eatting.

Im going to step running up to 1 min run and 2 min walk intervals. I found last weeks runs a lot less challenging than expected so Im cutting down the walking to 2 mins. I also am going to up the long run. Week 2 of the plan is supost to be 1 mile, like the first. But I ended up doing 1.4 miles (not including warm-up/cool down) on Saturday so upcoming Saturday Im going to go for 1.5 (not including warm-up/cool down).


Monday: walk or elliptical
Tues: run 15 mins (5 intervals)
Wed: walk or elliptical
Thurs: run 15 mins (5 intervals)
Fri: off
Sat: 1.5 mile
Sun: Swim

Continue tracking food and stay between 2500 and 3000 calories every day.

Way to go on the 2 pounds lost!!!

You're week 2 fitness schedule sounds great!

Thanks for the input on the elliptical. We'll see how income tax checks pan out, we might go ahead and buy one. In the mean time the kids have discovered roller skating so they want to do that every other weekend. I used to skate in my teens but last night was the first time in 20 years I had skates on!

The run 1 walk 2 seems to be a good pace for me right now. Just challenging enough.

I find getting consistent exercise is making me feel better, and giving me more energy though out the day. I need too keep working on the eating part, I find tracking what I eat more challenging that the running training!

Did something a little bit different today for cross training. I did a circuit, 5mins rowing machine (hard!), 10 mins bike, 10 mins elliptical and then repeated again. Total 50 mins! It was nice to mix it up a bit.

For supper I made some awesome veggie lasagna (fat free cheese).

I have the same problem. Working out is the easy part, you do it and you're done. The food thing, I have to remember to log it and a lot of times I don't.

Your circuit training sounds great! DS15 just hooked up the Wii so when he's done, I'll hit that before dinner.

Weigh-in

Down 3 more pounds.
Didn't think it would be so much, as I am still strugling with food still but I guess the excersize is paying off.

It's been a tough weekend. I was called into work 3 times on Saturday and never made it to the gym. So I did a mega work out today. I went to the gym before aqua fit so went from 1.5 miles to 1hr aqua fit. But the soak in the hot tub was the best part .

Did cross-trainning today. An hour on the eliptical but very slow pace. I'm getting a 'twing' in my knee. Not really painful, not sure how to explain it so was taking it easy on the speed.

Did my training run today. Total of 27mins (with warm-up and cool-down) with 6 of that running.
Knees fine today. Might have been my form, I totaly had the wrong bra on today so I was trying not to bounch too much, I was trying to 'glide'

I didn't workout yesterday. Too tired.
But I went and did my training run tonigh. 1.4miles in 26mins....still way to slow to make pace but I feel like I'm making progress. I can't push myself because I really, really don't want to get injured.

Since I missed yesterday, I plan on cross-training tomorrow.

Haven't been the best with food (bought a box of those 100calorie bars, but ate 3 in one sitting yesterday.

I weigh-in in the morning so it will be interesting to see what the scale says.
