2017 – Fitness Friday 30 (on a Sunday)

It’s Sunday everyone! How are you guys doing today? I’m doing great, thank you very much. So much has changed and happened this past week. I’ve been so busy. I will update you guys later on that. Sorry I haven’t been posting recently. But for now, here were my workouts last week and my updated half marathon training plan.

I know I should start running more and I will. See my plan below. I’m sorry it’s small but you can click on it to see it better.

2017 – Fitness Friday 26 (on a Sunday, again)

Happy Sunday everyone! How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. I haven’t been training well for my half marathon, apparently. See my workouts below.

Fitness Friday 7-14-17

I only ran once last week. The rest of time, I went on the elliptical. The problem is that I would rather run outside than on a treadmill at the gym. It gets too hot to run outside after work. That means that I have to wake up early to run (which I have to get used to doing again). I really need to up my running game so that I will be ready for my half marathon. Thursday was technically a rest day but I did dance that day (clubbing!). I still consider it cardio.

Well, that is it for now. I really do want to do a nutrition post that will help with half marathon training. It will come up eventually. I can say one thing for now about running nutrition. EAT YOUR CARBS AND HYDRATE. Carbohydrates are your friend during training.

How were your workouts the past week? 

Any tips for half marathon training?

2017 – Weekly Meals and Workouts 11

It’s Monday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. I ended up not running today (so much for training) but I do plan on running tomorrow. I will let you guys know how it goes this week.

Anyway, before I get into anything else, here is my plan for the week.

Workouts

Sunday- pull + one hour elliptical

Monday- 30 min elliptical + push

Tuesday-  4 mile run + pull

Wednesday- rest

Thursday- push + 6 x 400 m

Friday-  legs + 5k run

Saturday- pull + 20 min stairmaster

I have been feeling really tired lately, which was why I haven’t ran too much. However, I do plan on trying to run in the mornings again. I miss those days of running in the morning. I love the feeling of having your workout done in the beginning of the day so that you can relax after work. We’ll see how that goes. If you guys have any advice to getting up earlier in the morning, be my guest. I used to do that but haven’t lately.

So, that is it for now.

2017 – Fitness Friday 25 (on a Sunday)

It’s Sunday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. It’s been a hectic week and weekend. I am so glad I was able to relax today.

Anyway, let’s talk about my workouts. My half marathon training plan didn’t go as planned. I could have ran more but I am working on it. See my workouts last week below and you will see what I mean.

I also ended up not running 4 miles like I planned on doing today. Instead, I went on the elliptical for about an hour. I plan to run my four miles tomorrow though.

Well, that is it for now. I haven’t been eating the healthiest for my training and it is something I do have to work on. For example, I went to the Cheesecake Factory with mi novio yesterday and ordered the lunch size Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta and a slice of the Tuxedo cheesecake. I ate half of each though and they were delicious! The lunch size portion of the pasta was still huge! I also need to be eating more carbs ( I will get into that later  with my sports nutrition posts).

So, that’s it for now.

How were your workouts the past week?

2017 – Weekly Meals and Workouts 10 + Half Marathon Training Plan

It’s Monday everyone and the 4th of July is tomorrow! I hope you guys are enjoying the holiday weekend. I worked today but I have tomorrow off. Enjoy time with your family and friends. Also, enjoy all the good food! Don’t restrict yourself. 🙂

Anyway, I wanted this post to be about my training and meals. Here is my half marathon training plan.

2017 Urban Cow Half Marathon Training Plan 20170702

As you can see, I still want to incorporate strength training into my half marathon plan. There are probably better ways to do this (doing my runs and strength training on separate days) but I will see how this works. It worked out with my 10k training. Hopefully, it will work out with the half marathon as well. My goal is to get under 2 hours for this half! As an FYI, this plan will probably change as time goes on. It’ll depend on how I feel.

So, I guess you guys are wondering how my meals will look like. Well, here it is:

Meals:

Breakfasts – some sort of breakfast sandwich w/ coffee

Lunches- kung pao chicken w/ brown rice OR WW Pesto Pasta

Dinners- Brown Rice, veggies, some sort of protein OR out to eat (date nights!)

Snacks – Clif Z Bars, roasted chickpeas, apples, dark chocolate covered almonds, strawberries, etc. (whatever is around the house)

So, that is it for now. I will be posting more about sports nutrition related topics later on. It’ll be helpful to you guys and help me stay on track as well.

What is your plan for the week? 

How do you plan on celebrating the 4th of July?

Any suggestions on how I can improve my training plan?
