Mamavation Monday



I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things for my exercising. My eating has been less than up to par, but I'm forgiving myself for that. I haven't done horribly, so I'm proud of that. Here's my recap for the week.

Monday - a very short walk with the family
Tuesday - nothing
Wednesday - Hip Hop Abs, bowling, 30 min walk
Thursday - 30 min walk, 3 mile run
Friday - 30 min walk, Hip Hop Abs
Saturday - bowling
Sunday - 5 mile run, 30 mins walk

Plan for the upcoming week -

Monday - Hip Hop Abs
Tuesday - Virtual 5k
Wednesday - Hip Hop Abs, 30 min walk
Thursday - 3 mile run, 30 min walk
Friday - Hip Hop Abs, 30 min walk
Saturday/Sunday - 5 -6 mile run, 30 min walk

Today is the last day of 2012, and everyone is focusing on their goals for the upcoming year. So here are a few of mine.

1. Train consistently
2. Host my first successful challenge pack based challenge group
3. Study to become a personal trainer
4. Clean eat more consistently
5. Strengthen my marriage
6. Spend more quality time with my children.
7. PR on a 1/2 marathon and on a marathon

How about you? What are your goals for 2013?

  1. Great job, Pam! Your workout consistency is impressive.

    What are you doing to achieve a personal record with your running? Are you adding sprints or intervals? I've been adding a sprint to the end of my run, and I've definitely noticed an improvement in my overall pace.
    Stopping by from Mamavation. :)

    1. Krista..... I started doing this last year, but never followed through when I got closer to my marathon. I do 2 short runs a week, tuesdays I plan on alternating speed runs with incline runs. Thursdays I keep an easy, fun run and then my weekend run is going to be between 6-10 miles until I find another race to train for. I also am committing to doing turbo fire 5-6 days a week to build my core :) I hope to be a much stronger runner in 2013 :D
