Mighty Mommy Monday – Training week 6

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 decided to take a break this weekend. That’s right. I did not work out from after our family hike all the way until today. Oh yeah. I even skipped my 6 mile run. I got almost no sleep this weekend and decided that rest was a better method of training than running on empty and trying to finish a run. And I did not feel guilty. This means that tomorrow morning, when I get up, I should be ready to roll.

This week brings the introduction of both our Wednesday night services at church and the homeschool co-op session. What does this mean for me? No more night time workouts, that’s what. The alarm now officially is set to go off at 6am every. single. day.

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

Tuesday – Run 4 mi

Wednesday – Cross train. I loved that mid-week swim last week and think I should keep it!

Thursday – Run 4 miles.

Friday – REST

Saturday – Swim a mile

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

When I’m done training for this… I’m going to propose to the elliptical machine. I love it waaaaayyyy too much! And I’m shocked I didn’t discover it until now! No matter, I’m a dedicated gym rat now 🙂
