Oh my :fr: where does the time go ?! I'm ready to get back to my exercise routine and eating clean...

Today I started the new year with a 6k run, it felt awesome... It's been really nice here lately, I love thise mild weather we're having...

My exercise goals for the year are:
-- run every second day
-- weight train 4-5 times/week
-- swim at least 2 times/week...

What are your objectives for 2007?

Compete again. Or look like I could if I wanted to.

And be in shape to run a marathon.

Ilene
01-02-2007, 09:21 AM
Another objective of mine is to do that try-a-tri that I backed out of last summer ...

today: 33 minute jog

My big objective this year is to run a 5K at some point, but I'm actually considering joining a training team at the Y for a local 10K. I don't think I'm ready, but it's a huge race and lots of people run/walk it, which I think I could do.

Objectives for 2007

Run or equivalent (I have a complicated system for converting biking and swimming into "run equivalent miles to help me Xtrain) 1200 miles

1 race a month especially:
2-3 1/2 marathons
Hood to Coast
Portland Marathon

Be consistant with weight training.

My exercise goals for the year are:
-- run every second day
-- weight train 4-5 times/week
-- swim at least 2 times/week...



Those were my goals last November. Pretty ambitious. I weight train pretty heavy, and I couldn't keep it up! So I prioritized, pretty much in the order you have there. I ended up running 3 or 4 times a week and weight training 3 or 4 times a week. Swimming fell aside. But I plan to add a "lap fitness" class starting next week.

I am continuing my current weight training program until at least April. My goals are to do chin-ups, then pull-ups, and to deadlift and squat my bodyweight. I'm not experienced enough to predict when that will happen. I'm close on the deads, but I'm working on form for my squats. When my running training gets longer, I'll drop back to a maintenance lifting plan for the summer.

I've been working to keep a 15-20 MPH running base through the winter. Some weeks I make it, some weeks I don't :) I'll start speed work again in February, and train for a 25K in May. Then I'll pick my summer races. There are many 5 and 10Ks around here. There is a nice 10 miler. There is also a short triathlon I can try. And I could do a marathon or a half marathon next fall. If I choose and complete enough races, then I will maintain a healthy weight and level of fitness in 2007.

Ilene
01-03-2007, 02:20 PM
MissDee you have some great objectives ... I love lifting heavy too, now that I think about it I should make one of my objectives to be to do ONE pull up, even after 22 years of weight training I cannot do one unassisted pull up...

My exercise goals for the year are:
-- run every second day
-- weight train 4-5 times/week
-- swim at least 2 times/week...
Edited to add:
-- do one pull up unassisted
-- do a try-a-tri
:D

ennay
01-03-2007, 03:37 PM
Oh YES - do a pullup that would be awesome. I currently support 77% of my bodyweight doing pullups and dips.

My goals for the year consist of: weight training (which I am starting out by doing at home) 3 times per week... cardio 3-5 times per week....
and I am going to start to get outside and do some walking/jogging to build some endurance and considering doing a mini marathon with my cousin this summer... I am not looking to place ... just do it, just finish it, just say I did it!!!!
Overall I guess this year is a year of firsts for me...

mandalinn82
01-05-2007, 12:06 PM
Bah. Irritated because my allotted running time got eaten up by a wicked migraine (I get them when I don't get enough sleep, and my parents got a call at 5am from their airline - we're housesitting - saying that their flight had been cancelled...so then I had to track them down, after spending half an hour hacking into their voicemail because i didn't get to the phone fast enough in the first place, all the while thinking that something was -really- wrong, etc...and their cell phones were off...).

Hopefully it will go away by tonight. If not, its an unofficial rest day and I'll make it up on Sunday.

Is that really me
01-05-2007, 02:48 PM
Didn't get the walk in due to weather, work, and time constraints. But did just get done the Firm Tough Tape 2. Oh well, at least I did something, right? If energy (and memory) is there I'll try to do some of the Firm Ab workout tonight.

50 min Power Step Reebok video

I didn't get home in time to run today as I'd planned, so I found another old step aerobics video, and this one really kicked my butt! I'd forgotten how much I liked the step about ten years ago. This one was "power step" so it had all these jumps and runs and hops and craziness and I swear I felt like I'd been running for an hour. I was sweatier than I am after any other workout I do, including running!

Back to running tomorrow -- the temperature's supposed to be in the 70s here!

Sign up sign up! I think races are the most fun and most motivating thing I ever did. I used to exercise "to lose weight" and it just wasnt motivation enough. Now I exercise because I have 11 events planned for 2007 (I'm still looking for my December one) and I need to run to train. And on the days I dont want to train, then I still have weightloss as a backup motivator...it works really well.

ok, I really NEED someone to be accountable to, I hope you folks don't mind if I jump in... I am trying to walk every day, ( was walking everyday for 3 months this summer, 3 miles and was truly feeling proud of my accomplishment). I walked today 3 miles ( again, finally, have only been able to do a little over 2 miles til now due to ice and time constraints), it was cold and the wind was from the NW, and I hesitated, thinking I could put it off until tomorrow, but, I KNEW if I put it off today, I would be able to put it off tomorrow and so on, and so on... I really want to feel part of a determined group ( or many groups), my 8 yr old is supportive, but he loves me no matter how fit I am... I would really like to post on here every time I walk, and I plan on it! Today, I am determined!!! I WANT to be a success story!!!!!!

Oh yeah!!! I was going to put off walking today, since it was bitterly cold with a NW wind, but, after sitting on the computer for 45 minutes I guilted myself into going walking, bundled up and headed off with Queen blaring. You know, it wasn't so cold after all... I walked farther than I ever have before!!! I am pumped!! The wind died down when it got dark, and I still was a mile and a half from home ( ok, I don't like walking on the trail in the dark much, esp during winter when it is icy and I can't see the way), but, I did it!!!!! I am so happy for doing it, and I know that next time, I can tell myself about this time, and that will be no more reason for ever procrastinating again!! woooohooooo!!!

I got in my 2 and 1/2 miles today, with one little snag, my 8 yr old son wanted to walk with me... I said great! Let's bundle you up and you can walk with me today!" *Note to self, 8 yr olds can't keep up to 4 mph with snowpants on... So, after several starts and stops, he says to me, "Mom, let me know when we get to 1 mile, cuz I think then I am gonna throw up"! Straight out of the Ghostbusters movie!! His timing was impeccable! I had to laugh, and share it with all of you, he is so witty sometimes, makes me wonder if he is older than 8... Happy to say, I have walked every day but, Monday this past week, I am working on the "make it a habit in 21 days" motto.

Ilene - I have incredibly sympathy for people with food poisoning. The worst travel experience of my life involved severe food poisoning, two plane trips, the "seatbelt" sign remaining on, and six, count them six, airsickness bags. So I definitely feel your pain...glad you're feeling better!

I walked 2 miles outside, I have 1 more mile to do inside, ( it was getting dark and I live in the country too hard to be seen). I really feel much better after I exercise, I was getting grumpy today cuz I thought I wasn't going to walk outside, then, I realized I would feel much better if I walked, ( it is also getting to be a grumpy time of the month for me...)

In case anyone cares, we have 83 days left.

There isn't enough room for a wedding ticker. I'm leaning into the "red" signature zone already.

yahooo!!! Got in almost 4 miles today!!! And to think I almost talked myself out of walking outside! That for me is the hardest part when it is cold out, man, just looked outside and it is a good thing I walked when I did, appears to be an old-fashioned kind of blizzard out there now! Sorry i got side tracked, anyway, the hardest thing for me is to actually take the first steps, when I am out there I am loving it!!!

30 min "bonus" run (once again, it was used as an excuse to get my afternoon americano. I figure that if I'm going to spend 2.15 per day on espresso, I'd better do something to earn it...yesterday was cleaning out the car and taking it to be washed. Today was running to the store to purchase it)
