This Week's Runs!

Ok, so after watching Avatar I think it's an alright movie. The last fight sequence was the best part of the whole thing, maybe it would have been more amazing if I saw it in 3D.

Anyway.... This week's going to be fun. I'll be running and I'm going to start back with swimming. I used to be a lifeguard when I was a teen and I would swim a 500 every day. The goal was to swim it in under 14 minutes and by the end of the summer I could do it in under 7. I wonder if I can do that again.

I'm thinking swimming will be good cross training for me. I used to LOVE swimming. The only thing I have to do now is get past the whole stretch mark + swimsuit + pale white legs with a funky capri tan line thing. Hahaha! Naw, I don't really care about that. It'll be fun. I can't wait. :)

So, here's this weeks schedule:
Monday: 2 miles (walk) 4 miles (run) +  500 meters swim
Tuesday: 2 miles (walk) 6 miles (run)
Wednesday: 2 miles (walk) 4 miles (run) + 500 meters swim
Thursday: 2 miles (walk) 2 miles (run) + 500 meters swim
Friday: OFF + 500 meters swim
Saturday: Provo City Half Marathon!!!!!
Sunday: OFF

Ok, so it looks like a LOT, but here's the thing.  I'm going to do double days. I'm going to walk and swim in the morning and then run in the afternoon or the other way around. I'm also planning on doing a walk/run for the Half. I don't want to hurt myself so I'm being careful, but I also want to be strong and ready for my marathon, so I know I need to get this stuff in.

Yep, this weeks going to be a good week.

Here's another cool thing, B started T Ball and she's the ONLY girl on her team. I thought there would be more, but it's all good. She's awesome at T Ball and she can't wait for her first game on Tuesday. :) I love my sporty little girl.

My goals this week are to take my time and not hurt myself. I'm still going to listen to my body and I'm going to stop if it tells me to stop. I'm going go watch what I eat and I'm not going to eat 2nd helpings of strawberry shortcake. Haha! I love that stuff. I'm going to clean the whole house and get it all ready for my little bro and his family. I can't wait!!!

I hope everyone has a good week!

Sounds like a really good training plan. Swimming is always supposed to be a great cross trainer... and you could always try some water running too. Adam used to do it a lot when he had injuries to work through. Good luck with everything. I can't wait for next week either!!!

I love swimming! I think it is the perfect antidote to running. So relaxing and gets you all loosened up. Enjoy returning to it.

Once you're in the water, no one really notices what you're wearing. Relax and enjoy the swimming.
