Weekly Training Goals

Good morning folks!

Happy Tuesday!!

I just packed my gym bag and I packed shorts and a short sleeved shirt!!  Yes, that's right! Shorts in December in Oklahoma!! The high is supposed to be 61 today and unseasonably warm the rest of this week, so needless to say, I'm looking forward to getting out and enjoying the weather this week!

Here's a look at my training schedule for the week:

Monday: REST DAY! Thank you coach! I really needed a day off! One of the girls who travelled to St. Louis with me apparently had a little head cold. Despite lots of vitamin C and hand sanitizer, I think I picked up a mild case of it. I had a sore throat when I woke up yesterday, among some other symptoms. I stayed home from work and just took it easy. I did manage to complete my Christmas shopping online thanks to Amazon!!

Tuesday: ENDURANCE RUN--1 hour

Wednesday: HIP STRENGTHENING SERIES--I've got plans after work, so I will try to get this in at the gym on my lunch break.

Thursday: ENDURANCE RUN--1:15 hour, to build aerobic base and slow twitch muscles


Saturday: LONG RUN--10 miles. Currently the weather forecast is predicting "cold, soaking rain" so this might have to be tweaked. I'm hoping that the rain will hold off until after my run ;)


What are your workout plans for the week??


  1. Hopping over from the Running Bloggers group on FB :) Sounds like you have a very busy week ahead of you. I'm curious about your hip strengthening exercises, what is it that you have been doing? I have issues with tight hips and it has lead to trouble with my hamstring in the past.

    1. Hi Anita. Thanks for stopping by! It's a workout that my coach suggested for me. You can find it @ coachjayjohnson.com It's called MYRTL. There's even a YouTube video of it if you're not familiar with all the exercises.
