Fitness Fridays Goals Recap – Training for a 10k #Running

by Rachel on January 20, 2012

in fitness, health, running

This has been a crazy week for me, but I’ve tried to make fitting in my workouts a priority. I’m taking a quick break from packing to write this post, and today I’m going over to the new house to get internet and cable set up. Hopefully it will go smoothly, but if I’m offline for the next few days, you’ll know why :)

I’m trying to stick closely to the Hal Higdon 10k training plan now, so here’s how my week has gone:

Sunday: Ran the Project Heal 5k in 34:20 (read my 5k race report here)
Monday: 30 minutes elliptical, 30 Day Shred DVD
Tuesday: ran 2.5 miles on treadmill at easy pace, walked up and down 12 flights of stairs twice at work (I think my legs are still sore from this! great way of staying awake at 5 am)
Wednesday: 30 Day Shred DVD
Thursday: got off work and ran 2 miles outside with my dog. Nice and chilly in the 40s but it was refreshing :)
Friday: I will probably use today as my “rest” day, since I need to be packing and over at the other house waiting for cable most of the day

How are your fitness/health goals going?

Our fitness goals are going great. Having a gym membership with classes helps! Keep up the good work and make sure to fit in some strength among all the running. It will help you!

Yeah, that’s where I struggle. I use 30 Day Shred DVD as my strength/cross-training workout, but I’d like to do some more strength specific stuff like P90X.

Mine is going OK, now that my surgical site has healed up I can start doing water aerobics which I’m looking forward to.

Making workouts a priority is a must! I’m a runner too and your fitness goals are inspiring me to get a more structured plan together….it’s the only way to be successful:)

I’d love to run, but the osteoarthritis in my right knee (as well as orders from my dr.) keeps me from doing so. Instead, I resort to walking at a fast pace. No matter how you get your exercise in, you must make it a priority and do it on a daily basis.

Are you running up in the mountains on your trip?


Rachel January 28, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Sarah, that would be a great workout but I don’t feel safe doing it here. We’re staying up on the mountain and there are a lot of blind curves here. I think it would be hard for drivers coming around the curves to see me in time. I am missing my running but I feel like the skiing is a great workout in its place!

Your program sounds focused. After reading this, you have inspired to get going on a walking program that is consistant. Thank you

I’m glad that I helped, Barbara! Let me know how it goes.
