Well, I have achieved one of my Rainier Training goals, Goal #3 - to get in good enough shape to begin hard-core training, i.e. get back below 200 lbs. I lost 3.4 lbs this week, despite shoddy training, and now I can begin really training.
I also got some new training equipment, a bosu ball (A Christmas present from my dad):
And a swim cap for my swims - I've never worn a swim cap before, this could be entertaining the first time I try to put it on. LOL!
It's somewhat funny. Many people would consider 5 workouts in a week to be a good week. Me? When I made the image from dailymile for this post, I said - WHAT? I only did 5 workouts this week? WTH. I did have an unplanned rest day on Sunday when something I ate in the morning disagreed with me and left me nauseous the rest of the day.
To improve on this past week's training and to finally get started on the hard-core training, this week, I am going to be making an effort to take advantage of paying for the kids room at the gym. (So that I can get a workout in during the day, despite Miss Avery). It's been hard to use it lately, because it's not open in the afternoon. So far, I did go swimming this morning, but it was a short swim, because I neglected to check whether there was a class in the pool before leaving the house. WINNING! :)
In January, my weekly schedule will generally be strength training with Adam on Mondays and Wednesdays, as well as stair-climbing sessions in those mornings. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays will be run days. Friday will be a rest day. Sundays will be a swim, hike or stair climb day. If the weather is ever nice enough for outdoor baby time, I will load Avery up in the Kelty pack, put on my climbing boots and hike over at High Banks Metro Park.
Is there any exercise equipment that you feel you can't live without?
How did you week go? What are your plans for this coming week?
