No that it is under 30 days to the BMO Vancouver Half Marathon, I thought that it would be now or never to take my training more seriously. Last week was a bit of a non workout week - went to the Gym once and then went to Hot Yoga once - 2 workouts in one week is kind of a bad effort. This weekend MJ & I went to Seattle - we managed to get one run in. It was a good chance to do some hill work in slight preparation for the hills that I will be running in a few months time (which I will freak out about later....a full marathon, how crazy can I be??). But now all my energy has to be focused on the next couple of weeks so that I can be prepared for the half marathon.
Today after spending a very aggravating 2 and a half hours in the Doctors Office, I went to the gym to hit the treadmill and the bikes. Ran 30 minutes on the Treadmill and rode the bike for 20 minutes - it felt like a really good workout, and built up a good sweat.
My goal for the rest of the week is to go to the gym once a day and use Saturday as my long run day - and celebrate with the team on Sunday as they have reached their half way mark!! I will also start to do some weight training - use the book of exercises that MJ photocopied for me, so that I have some guidance.
So it is off to bed for me, after drinking my bottle of water to hydrate myself, and be ready for the early start tomorrow morning.
