Today legs are feeling better, Abs – almost hundy percent. I am ready to take on the next week!
No run today, the children and I spent most of it in the backyard gardening and playing in their little paddling pool.
We also tried the Bethlehem Farmers Market, I really wanted some decent Avocado’s, the ones from my supermarket that I had been delivered were crap! I think we will be making a regular Sunday trip to the markets for veg!
While we were out I got a 2014 Calender so I could finish off my Training Plan, and kind of get a jist of how everything is going to happen over the Christmas Period.
I am planning a camping trip and a week away, so I need to know where everything falls to start making some robust habits that wont fall by the wayside during the festive season!
Seeing as we will be away for almost 2 weeks before Christmas (Week 4 and 5 of my training plan) I kind of need to plan out how I am going to get those runs and strength work outs in. If I don’t start looking at it all now, and shit hits the fan, I will feel like I am stuffing up by not sticking to the plan! Can anyone say CONTROL FREAK!
It is also my children’s 2nd Birthday in the second week of December, Our trip away, then Christmas, a Family 40th, and then New Years! I will be glad to see January! I just want everything to go off without a hitch! Failing to Plan is a Plan to Fail – said it before, saying it again!
I also did the Weekly meal plan for next week, and did the shop online, I researched a new product to try and also a new recipe to try. Got a lot going on, but that is how we Pimp the Beast!!
My Plan to Win!…
When I step back and look at it, it looks pretty busy. Its not really, it’s just methodical.
I have 1 small and 1 big event that falls on the first and second week of my training plan, so I wont be able to follow those ones to the ‘T’.
I also realised when looking at the next years tentative plans for events, it seems there is only 7 weeks between the other 2 Half Marathons that I want to compete in. I will have to get some advice on how to deal with those ‘training plan’ wise.
TOUGH MUDDER is also coming to New Zealand in April… It smells like an expensive year!!
Plan is done, now all is left to do is work off a bit more weight over the next 2 weeks, then we get the show on the road!
Weigh-in Day tomorrow… nervous and excited to let you know how well all this Pimping is working for me.
What did you get up to today? Did you Run long?
See you tomorrow
