What’s the Plan for the week

What are your workouts going to be this week?  I plan to hit 5 yoga classes, a 6 miler, an easy 4 miler, 2 speed workouts, 2 leg strength days + 1 upper body strength day.  Check got that down, but why I am going to do all that?  I’m hitting my week to help me get ready for the Seattle Rock N Roll 1/2 marathon in June.  I have a specified run schedule designed so I peak on race day, I have strength workouts planned to power me up those Seattle hills and keep me injury free, and I have yoga to keep me limber and balanced.

Why are you doing your workout plan for the week.  We may not all have a race or specific event we are training for, but we should all have a purpose.  Many of you might say to lose weight.  I say pick something more specific and then keep making a new goal when you get to the next.  Some good small goals:

1.To get some killer endorphins to start your day off right!–Repeat tomorrow, and the next day, and the next!

2. To feel slim by the time Friday rolls around.–Then repeat the following week!

3.To put your training buddy to shame.–P.S. They have the same goal as you!

4.  To eat that piece of Chocolate cake.–You better be going all out!

If you have a more personalized reason to workout rather than a vague weight loss goal, you will be more excited for your workout.  Like Elle Woods says: “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t. ”  It’s simple lawyer logic.  Get your workout in! 🙂
