This month saw short days, and I struggled to keep as many runs as I could outside. I still blame the treadmill slightly for my injury last winter. My goal is no more than one treadmill run a week, but it isn't always easy and sometimes I have no choice. It's either sit on my butt or treadmill, and in the end, the treadmill is still the better option.
I incorporated some crosstraining back in this month, since I let my mileage drop down some. It was nice to break the weights back out.
Circuits w/ weights x 7
Ab workout x 1
Yoga x 2
Running mileage = 99
Track workouts x 4
Races x 0
This is the first time I've continued to hit the track during the winter. Let's hope I can keep it up. I'd love to head into the spring racing season faster than I was last year. Oh wait, last year I was injured and missed all the spring races. Okay, maybe I should just say I'd love to head into the spring racing season uninjured ;-) That alone would be an improvement!
Bundle up and head outdoors folks! Once you get moving, it's really not that bad. I promise :-)
Good job, Lisa. You are an inspiration.
Nice! Hope you get through to spring with no problems. :)
Ahh, I love exercise but for some reason can't catch the running fever. I want it, but my body doesn't! Any tips for dealing with the pain after a run?
Good luck on your workout!!!
It is so cold this morning. I may have to run to the car!
You motivate me, lady! Here's too a movement-filled new year!
Omg. To. Why did my keyboard think I needed a second o there? I am the grammar police, so that is not acceptable. Gasp!
Ps. So glad we got to meet in 2011! ;)
99 cold weather miles--congrats Lisa.
I can't believe how many miles you run, well I can believe it... but wow!! I don't run because of my hip replacement, but that is a lot of miles regardless.
My weights would look like sissies next to yours. LOL
yup, i'd say your ahead of the game already, then! :)
Your commitment to exercise amazes me. I used to be like that but I just can't seem to get back into it.
Congrats, Lisa... We did bundle up yesterday and went to the track to WALK. It was 25 degrees --but the windchill made it feel like 13.. Brrrrrr.....
I agree! I walked to the post office this morning-it was 21 degrees out-but it felt really good to be out in the fresh air!
Lisa-Here's wishing you a running season free from injuries:)
I am so impressed with you girl! sandie
Even in the cold, you keep on keepin' on. I couldn't do it!
I admire your fitness drive,myself I am just getting back into walking again(after being sick) but I agree,exercising is alright once you get started. Blessings Jane
Those are still some pretty great #'s, especially for December.
I've continued to do 3x a week walk/jog mostly walk as of lately because I tweaked my back. I am going to start adding in another couple treadmill days. I also REALLY NEED to add in abs. I definitely have got to be doing more if I want to start losing at all.
Great plan! The weather has been so nice here this year we have all stayed very active. But I now have a Wii Fit - for whenever winter hits.
Very inspiring. True that you always feel much better after the workout than when you first start :)
Good advice. I just got back to my daily 2 mile walk, which I hope to step up a notch.
I love the cold, crisp air!
great Lisa! Hope you can get there without any injury! :) Health is wealth,so stay fit! :) God bless! :)
You are such an inspiration!! Way to go!!
I've vowed to walk the kids to and from school at least 3-4 days a week. That's 3 miles round trip. Let's hope I can keep it up all year!!
I actually started running again a couple weeks ago! But it was so windy and cold that day, I was deterred. I may need to wait until Spring. :)
