2018 – Fitness Friday 22 (on a Monday)

Happy Monday everyone. I’m so sorry for not posting for such a long time. It’s been a crazy few weeks. I went on a mini-vacation during Labor Day weekend to visit my sister in Southern California. We went to Disneyland, the 626 Night Market, the beach, etc. Then, that following Thursday, September 6, I went to San Jose with my cousin to watch Shakira, in concert. It was amazing! And of course, I got sick that  Saturday. So, yes, I was sick all last week and couldn’t do much. I have so much to post about but first, I wanted to give an update on my workouts. Here they are!

So, that’s correct. I don’t workout when I’m sick. I believe in full rest when you’re sick. Allow time for your body to fight off the illness. I plan on working out again starting tomorrow. I will ease back into it.

Also, I probably won’t be doing the half marathon that I was supposed to be training for. I haven’t been running, so I don’t think it’s the best idea to run the half. I’ll probably switch to the 5k to get my money’s worth.

Well, that’s it for now. I will be posting about my SoCal Trip and the Shakira Concert in different posts.

How were your workouts? 

Do you workout while on vacation?  I sometimes do but if I can’t fit it in, it’s fine.  I don’t stress about it.

Do you workout when you’re sick?

2018 – Fitness Friday 18 (on a Saturday) + Half Marathon Training Plan

Happy Saturday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. The summer has been really hot! I like fall or spring weather.

Anyway, my half marathon training hasn’t been going so well.  I only ran once this week. I need to start running more. Here’s what I mean.

Here’s my half marathon training plan.

2018 Half Marathon Training

We will see how this goes! I don’t expect a PR but I hope to have fun running and get into waking up early and working out in the morning more.

That’s it for now!

Do you have any advice for half marathon training? 

How were your workouts the past week? 

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.

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.
