It’s February 1st (somehow?!), so that means I’m off on my joint adventure – my GetFit 12-week fitness challenge, and my back-to-running training plan. A woo hoo!
(I am a little bummed out that GetFit didn’t start last week. Due to some lovely severe transit delays early in the week, I decided to get creative with my morning commute, in hopes that I could find a route that would take less than 2 hours. The way I tried involved a 2-mile walk – a lovely, nostalgic jaunt that used to be my commute when I lived in the city. However, in my halcyon days I’d only walk it in nice weather, whereas this week was a bit more brisk and windy than ideal:
… Anyway. We’ll just say that last week was Week 0 and a nice tune-up for real Get-Fit!)
Here’s what Week 1 will look like:
GetFit goal: 150 minutes
Wed: run 20-25 minutes
Fri: run 20-25 minutes
Sun: run 2 miles
I may tweak the training plan a bit… I’m thinking of substituting speed work for one of the cross-trainings, but we’ll see. Otherwise, I’m loving how gently it’s starting me off; all my wonky and/or misbehaving body parts will hopefully keep themselves in line if I ease them into it!
How was your weekend?
How do you work around commutes from hell?
