Training Tuesday: what should I post?
Since I'm not currently training for anything - other than to continue to fit in my "skinny" jeans throughout the winter - I'm not really sure what to post here. All of my workouts are on DailyMile (see the widget to the right) so it seems a bit silly to rehash them here.
My current plan is to work on some speed and strength and hopefully lose about 12-15 pounds in the process. These are two areas I can focus on when the weather starts to go to shit because I can either lift at home (which I did all week), run either inside at the gym or hit the trail, and I have my bike on my trainer at home. If they translate to some weight loss, that's great. If not, I won't be devastated since my body seems pretty content to hang out right around 148-150 pounds right now. More than that would be a problem.
The goal is two-a-days most days - not two runs, because that would be dumb, but a strength and a cardio workout everyday. There will likely be at least 1 rest day per week as well. Since I'm just getting back into running after my marathon, the runs this past week were all pretty short - with my longest being a whopping 5 miles.
RUNNING - 3 runs for 11.2 miles
BIKING - 2 spins for 19 miles
SWIMMING - 1 swim for about .7 miles
LIFTING - 3 sessions abs, lower body, upper body
Crowd sourcing - What would you like to see here? More specifics, less details, help me out. I like to look back and see what I've done on a weekly basis but I also want to provide content that is helpful and interesting to you guys.
