So here’s the plan:
- Start May 1st
- Daily Yoga
- Run 3 times a week
- Lift 3 times a week
- Keep Going
Daily yoga. I’m going to start every morning with at least a 15 minute routine. Ideally I’d like it to be 30 minutes but I realize there are some mornings that might not happen. I am allowing myself permission to shift a few days to evenings if I need it. But my goal is to not go a day without yoga.
I’ll finish up the last two weeks of the couch to 5k and then switch to probably a 45 minute running routine. Aiming for about 3 miles per run to start. I’ve been using the Zombies 5k by Zombies, Run and have really enjoyed it so I’m probably going to start using the Zombies, Run app for regular runs. The last few weeks I’ve usually been running on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. So I’ll stick with those days for running.
Then on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I’ll do a weight lifting routine. This is mostly to tone but I would like to regain some of the strength I had when I was working in the theatre full-time.
That leaves Saturday as a rest day of sorts. I will still have yoga but won’t be running or lifting weights. I’m going to do my best to stick with these days, but if need be I can shift the rest day a bit.
I’m sure there are going to be days I don’t feel like it. Days when I’m ill or just slip up. But I’m not going to let that get me into a slump. I’m going to keep going and do my best. My challenge is 100 days straight without missing any. I’ll let you know how I do.
