I’m starting to run again TODAY! I actually have a written plan and I’m going to train “like” I’m going to be running a half marathon. I don’t have one scheduled but it really bothers me that back in Feb I was up to 8-9 miles and then just stopped because of wedding season. SO Today, I’m starting again!
I found a plan that fits my starting level and goes for 12 weeks from Hal Hidgon. If you’ve ever wanted to run or train for a race you should check out this website because there are so many great tools!
Basically this week for me looks like this:
Today: 2 miles
Wed: cross train
Thursday: 2 miles
Sat: cross train
Sun: 3 miles
Now, this is not exactly what Hal Hidgon’s plan said, but I changed it to fit where I’m at right now!
It’s just been so hard for me to get motivated. My biggest challenge is stopping by the gym and if I make it home I won’t run outside because I will either want to relax or I have too much other stuff to do. BUT I’m going to make a conscience effort to fight that and run! PLUS, I really want to have lost those additional 10 pounds that I’ve been holding on too by Thanksgiving!
What are some ways you stay motivated to work out?
