Fitness Friday: What's Next?

So, this week I've let myself be lazy.  I haven't worked out at all unless you count the 2 walks I did on Sunday (for a total of 2.5 miles but they were very slow miles after the Bayshore 1/2 the day before) and about 15 minutes of abs work on Wednesday (that I'm still feeling today - out of shape much??).  My poor DailyMile is still sporting a giant goose egg.  I never even zapped the zero this week.  I know I needed the rest but I feel like a fail.  I could've biked or swam or done something but every day after school I've either had kid stuff or the weather hasn't cooperated (the pool isn't open if there's thunder/lightening and I won't bike in that crap either).  I need to make a plan or I'm afraid this lazy-ass trend is going to continue.

These are my thoughts - feel free to weigh-in.

  • Begin the New Rules of Lifting for Women strength training workouts again.  I made it all the way through Stage 1 last year and I liked the structure.  I downloaded the jefit app for my phone and I've found a couple of people there that have already built in the Stage 2 workouts, but no Stage 1s - boo.  I need to play with the app and put them in there because I hated dragging a notebook with me to the gym.  If I can't figure out the app, I might just re-create the logs as a google doc.  
  • Put together a training plan for Tri Del Sol.  This sprint tri is on July 20th and I haven't even taken my bike off the trainer yet.  Truth be told, I'm terrified of riding it clipped in.  I will probably use the same basic plan I used for the Millenium Tri last year, but longer runs on the weekends so I keep my 1/2 marathon base up.
  • Incorporate a few two-a-day runs to train for the 200 mile Fred Relay (August 9/10).  I've never done a relay so if anyone has a training "plan" for this, please let me know.
  • After Tri Del Sol, get serious about the 1/2 again and make sure my legs are ready for the Wine Trail Half on August 25th.  I'm not worried about pace for this one because it's basically going to be a girls weekend with a 13.1 mile run thrown in the middle.
  • I'm going to run tomorrow. Even if it's only a silly little mile, I'm going to run.  I miss it already.
Have you found a good strength-training app that allows you to track your progress/sets/weight/etc?  If you have, please let me know about it.

Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Is anybody out there?

So, it would appear I posted about six times in 2016.  Here it is, half way through 2017, and I haven't written a darn thing. In my de...
