New look: January Training Plan

After a very busy 2014, I finally brought back my training plans! They are meant for my personal use, but feel free to always follow along! I also encourage you to make your own.
This year I’m trying to become a bit more organized planning my schedule(s). As you can see, it has a new look! I’m going by weeks instead of days, and I planned my schedule around work, play, and school. January is my warm up month to the start of an exciting year. Check it out…

I also added “Cross Train Thursdays.” My goal is to do a new workout every week, while also cross training for my marathons and bike-a-thon. I hope to post about it every Thursday. Next, I will also have Three Mile Thursdays once a month. This will be my 5K challenge to try and beat my PR. Since it’s the first month of the year, I will be setting the time to beat. (let’s see how this goes)

What’s your fitness goal for the month?

New Year. More Miles.

Happy New Year! I can’t believe how fast 2014 flew by!

Last year, I made a few running and fitness goals. (Shown below)

  1. Run at least 2 Half-Marathons
  2. Run a Half-Marathon under 2 hours and 15 minutes
  3. Run over 200 Miles in 2014
  4. Eat clean, cut out processed food as much as possible.
  5. Give up Chocolate for one month. (This will be extremely hard, since I’m addicted)
  6. Bike 100 Miles in a MS Bike Tour
  7. Run a Marathon.

Unfortunately I was only able to complete one out of the eight.  I had a handful of setbacks in 2014 with running injuries and illnesses. Needless to say 2014 wasn’t my year for wellness.

But that’s okay. Because, now I’m able to stick to the goals I made in 2014 and complete them this year.

Without further to do, here’s my new personal fitness goals for 2015…

1. Run a Marathon
2. Bike 180 Miles for Children’s Miracle Networks. I must raise $450 before I can bike. Here is my fundraising page.
3. Run over 300 miles
4. Run at least two half-marathons
5. Strengthen shins and overall muscles

My main focus this year will be training for my first-ever marathon. I am planning to run 26.2 in the Fall.

So here’s to another wonderful year of health and fitness!

 

 

 

 

New Year. New Miles.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve, and spent quality time with friends and family!

It’s officially 2014 and what better way to start the year off, then making a few goals?

Last night, I wrote down my personal fitness goals for the new year, and I’d love to share them with you!

  1. Run at least 2 Half-Marathons 
  2. Run a Half-Marathon under 2 hours and 15 minutes 
  3. Run over 200 Miles in 2014

  5. Give up Chocolate for one month. (This will be extremely hard, since I’m addicted)

This morning I kicked off the New Year with a total of one mile on the treadmill, in a new pair of running shoes. WOO!
Over 200 miles here I come! 

What’s some of your fitness goals in 2014?
