Mighty Mommy Monday – Training week 5

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!

I’m realizing the full extent of my training this week. Between homeschooling, housework, freelance work, exercising and generally trying to be a balanced person, I’m not doing so well. Last week, I cut my volunteer participation significantly. It hurt my heart a little to say goodbye to so much good, but I have to sleep at some point, you know? However, I was running out of creative juice for several of the positions and I much prefer quality over quantity so I feel that for myself, the right decision was made.

My legs were really bothering me on Sunday’s run, so I’m contemplating adjusting my runs so that walking is built right in. So at least while I’m training, I’m not flirting with injury. I get another adjustment on Friday, and I am really looking forward to that!

Monday – stretch and strengthen {more stretching, less strengthening… today is a modified rest day now}

Tuesday – Run 4 mi {It’s supposed to be a scorcher tomorrow… I plan to run at the Y. In the air conditioning. I’m a wimp. I don’t care who knows it.}

Wednesday – Cross train. I’m considering squeezing an extra swim in this week. I really like doing those peaceful laps back and forth in the pool. {if I’m ambitious, I might toss in a little time on the elliptical}

Thursday – Run 4 miles.

Friday – REST {and adjustment}

Saturday – Swim a mile

Sunday – Run… 6 miles. Planning for a run 1 mile, walk .25 mile, run 1 mile, walk, etc. pattern.
