Good morning. I can't believe that it is the last day of August already. Where does time go these days?
I'm looking forward to Fall. It is my favorite season because 1) changing colors 2) cool, crisp air 3) pumpkin flavored things 3) my birthday 4) Thanksgiving. Today is a sign that Fall is coming. It is raining and windy outside and probably in the low 50's. A perfect day to work from home, drink coffee, and get a TON of work done without being distracted at the office.
I had one goal for August - run 80 miles. I did it! I ran 87 miles actually. Hooray! I'm not even going to post my swim and bike mileage cause they're SO low. I probably fit in 4 rides and 2 swims the whole month of August and that includes my triathlon...whoops. That's okay though, because I'm doing running events all of September, so I needed to focus on running. BUT I love cycling and swimming to, so I've decided I need a plan of action to make sure I don't keep skipping those workouts.
Here is my plan for September:
Monday: Run, Bike (Brick), Lift lower body
Tuesday: Swim, light run, Lift upper body
Wednesday: Long run
Thursday: Bike, Swim, Lift
Friday: Off or Xtrain (elliptical, long walk)
Saturday: Swim, Long bike
I'm going to make keeping to this schedule my goal for September, but I already know with the races I'm doing, it will get adjusted a bit. But I want to mainly stick to 4 day running, 3 swims, 3 rides and 3 days lifting. This is doable, especially because I can split my workouts into morning and evening.
Do you have any goals for September? Still can’t believe it’s SEPTEMBER tomorrow…
A friend just sent me this picture and I had to share. Enjoy.
