Mighty Mommy Monday – Training week 3

It’s Mighty Mommy Monday! Abbie of Farmer’s Daughter and I have decided to challenge you on a weekly basis.  Claim the Mighty Mommy title for yourself — every day, not just Mondays. Every week, we’ll host a link up for you to tell us what you’re doing to take care of your health: workouts, menu plans, how to keep your family active, etc. I’ve set a few goals for 2014, but my biggest is to swim a total of 30 freestyle miles this year AND run a half marathon in October! Join us!


Alright. Two weeks down, 10 to go. This week, the pool at our Y is closed for standard repairs, so I don’t get to swim 🙁 Phooey. I’m a little concerned about building the mileage, so I’m considering making Wednesday more of a running day, with less time spent cross training. Last night’s run was awful. It was hot and sticky and made me realize that either I need to start getting my butt out of bed earlier in the day, or I’ll have to suffer. On the plus side, there are several homes with sprinklers in my area I can run through like… well, a child.

Monday – Yoga and strength.

Tuesday – Run 3.5 miles… first of the mileage bumps during the week. I’m intimidated

Wednesday – Cross train… I’m planning to spend Wednesday at a fitness class taught by a friend I haven’t been able to work out with in a while. Yay!

Thursday – Run 3.5 miles and strength.

Friday – Rest

Saturday – 40 minute cross train {cycling}

Sunday – Run 5 miles

Another goal for the week is to pay closer attention to how well I am hydrating. I bought myself a GPS watch and tested it out last night. It’s not a fancy one, but I do like it and it’s not as difficult to set up as the reviews would leave you to believe.

So that’s my week… what are you up to? That Mama Gretchen is training for a 5k and Abbie is still swimming away!  You go girls!
