Weekly Wrap-Up and Goal Setting #5

Last week was a pretty good week, I didn't meet all of my goals for the week but I still had a good week.

Wrap Up:
I think I was a bit too ambitious with my workout planning. That schedule I made last week is my ideal workout schedule but clearly not my realistic one. I felt great during the beginning of the week but towards the end I started feeling bad. One of the reasons is that my monthly demon friend came for a visit and this was a particularly bad visit. Anywhoo...I'm feeling better now so here is how I did last week.
Swimming: Once (1000 meters)
Biking: none - it was raining this past weekend and I'm not up for riding in the rain
Running - 9 miles, I was going to run Sat but it was cold and rainy
Dang...when I type it out, it seems worse that I thought. I didn't do much at all this past week :(
On a good note, I lost 2 lbs! Things are going well for me using this calorieking thing. I have been extra hungry though so I'm still not so sure about this.

Goal Setting:
While I would like to say that I will do what I planned for last week I will be more realistic with myself. I think I am pretty much ready for the triathlon and Marisa's triathlon training starts soon so that will help me out too.
Swimming: 2 times (Monday and Friday)
Biking: 2 times (Wednesday and Sunday)
Running: 3 times (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday)
Doing one event a day is a lot more realistic than saying that I'm going to do two workouts a day.

What do you have planned for the week??

I like how you make exercise goals for the week. I have done that before and then gave up, I'm going to start again. Thanks for your motivation.

Sarah said...

Sounds like you have some good goals!

My plan this week is 4 runs and at least 2 bikes. I have also been squeezing in some walks with my little guy in the stroller whenever I can :)

I try to plan my runs out at the beginning of each week. I know I do 3 miles of hills on Monday, 6-mile trail run on Thursdays, and Saturdays are long run. I try to fit in 1-2 other days of running based on what I need my mileage to be. I can't imagine also finding time to fit in biking and swimming!

My demon came to visit too. :-( It didn't impede my working out, because I never work out.

Jennifer - Yeah! I'm happy that I can motivate anyone.

Sarah- sounds like a good plan.

Dena - It is definitely hard. At least I don't have kids to have to schedule stuff around

TBC - You need to!
