Sweat etc. February 2014

Ready. Set. Goals.

1. Follow 10km Training Plan (weeks 1 – 3)

Weeks 1 and 2 were not an issue. Week 3 however, I got caught up in the business of life and work which equated to no running whatsoever. This third week actually really got me thinking about running…Q: can you run and have it all?! Let me know what you think!

2. Attend Local Park Run on Feb 22nd 

I was so happy when my Saturday morning remained free! The initial plan was to head to my nearest park run, but then a conversation got started on the Team Naturally, Run Facebook group about heading to a Park Run in North London. Having some support seemed like a good idea so I headed across the river to meet Steph and Lissy on a crisp sunny morning!

I wrote my little run recap here! …The pictures are not all that glamourous! …massive shout out to Laura who came and provided some much needed / welcomed motivation on each lap!!

3. Weekly Schedule: Yoga 3x, run (to plan), Reformer 1x, Other 1x 

Week 1: spinning, PowerPlates, PowerPlates, Barre,
Week 2: reformer, capoeira, PowerPlates, reformer, yoga, run training
Week 3: HIIT class, yoga, run training
Week 4: run training (5km of week 2 programme), yoga, reformer, spinning, yoga

Trying to find that perfect balance of classes that a) benefits me and b) is achievable in any given week is coming along! Only the second month of the year and lots going on! We must always remember that goals are not set in stone…they should be flexible to reflect our current needs…

Focus Forward to March…

    Goals – dreams but in writing. I love your goals, and I'm sure putting it out there will keep you accountable. I've never done a park run. I'd love to be able to do when the next time I'm in Melbourne (or maybe geelong). March I have a tough mudder, so I'm in the peak phase of my training for that. I'm excited cause I have a team this year, and also doing it with my mum.
