Ok, so I’m committed to my 2nd half marathon.
And I’m all over the Barre N9ne challenge (which is going amazingly well, if my ridiculous enthusiasm over the whole thing isn’t clear by now!).
How will I balance both?
I was thinking about this last night as I dozed into dreamland. I’m all about focus these days – less is more, quality over quantity, all that jazz.
So here’s my plan: Barre N9ne is on until July 13. I’m in it to win it. So is my sis.
But the half will be just about one month later on August 14. I’ve got to finish what I’ve started.
So – is there a training plan in mind, you ask?
Booshy shared a pretty fanfrickintastic training plan with me and my sis today. She goes so far as to laminate it to post on the fridge (talk about motivating!). I love it. Yet – I find myself shying away from a “written” training plan, per se. So instead, I’m going to loosely follow what I did last summer when training for the Wicked Half. The whole less is more thing worked well here – less is more being less structure is better for me than more. It prevents stress, something I dig, big time these days.
So the plan, sorry – was digressing there for a sec. (Such a spaz today.):
Run 4x/week – one long run (likely on Sundays) of varying mileage, two shorter runs (3-5ish miles) and one mid-range run (6, 7ish). Of course, I’ll be building up to the longer mileage to avoid any training injuries. The last thing I want to do is run into another knee issue!
In between running, I’ll continue to focus, focus, focus on Barre N9ne.
And that’s it. All she wrote, folks.
Kinda sounds like what I’m already doing now, huh? Well, it is – I’m just finally ready to give this “thing” a name – it’s my barre-n9ne-challenge-ala-half-marathon-training-lovefest.
Whatcha think? Has a nice ring to it, no?
Oh – and in typical spaz fashion, a couple of MUST-HAVES to get me through the next 2.5-ish months, I’ve decided?
Lululemon RUN shorts
Lululemon groove pants
