Happy first day of October!
I've been super busy since our last visit!
My Pathways group is ramping up their mileage in anticipation of their goal race, the Tulsa Run 15k. We've increased our intervals to 10:1 and our pace to 12:00 minutes/mile. We've had some pretty good hill training recently. They really dislike hills, I think! I have heard quite a bit of grumbling from some of them. ;) But, overall, they are doing a great job! This has been one of the most enjoyable groups I've had the opportunity to work with. I hope some of them are planning to run the Route 66 half marathon. I have run it for the past 3 years. I wasn't really going to run it this year but they have changed the route again so I think that I'll go ahead and do it. I just hope the weather is better than last year. It was so cold that it wasn't an enjoyable run at all!
Last night, before our run, I stepped on the scale at Fleet Feet Sports Tulsa. I really can't recall the last time I weighed myself. I'm not really sure what I was expecting. I haven't lost any weight. Actually, I might have gained 2 or 3 pounds. I was surprised when I saw 127.8 on the scale. Usually a 2 or 3 pound gain makes me feel fluffy. But, not this time. My clothes don't feel any tighter. As a matter of fact, they may be a little more loose. I've been trying to watch my macros and keep my diet "clean" for the most part. I plan and prepare, but I have a difficult time curbing my late day snacking. Somedays, I want sweets and other days I want crunchy and salty. I know if I cleaned up my diet even more, I'd see the results that I'm wanting to see. But in the meanwhile, until I learn to kick the snacking for good, I'll keep doing what I'm doing and just trust the process! Obviously, its working!
A new month means new goals!
This month, I'm planning to clean up my diet even more. I'm hoping to reduce my "treats" from a daily occurrence to 1or 2 times/week.
I've been better about doing my cross training / strength training. And I'm planning to continue this trend for October. My goal is to workout at least 5 times / week. I'm still doing the Body Beast and plan to continue it.
Sometimes, time is a factor when it comes to working out. The BB workouts are about 40 minutes each. I'm always looking for things to do if I'm pressed for time. And that brings us the W.O.D for this Workout Wednesday. I got this from one of my friends at work. He said it's pretty intense. I'm eager to try it! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Until next time - - get up, get out, and get moving! Whatever you decide to do today, be awesome at it!
What are your fitness/nutrition goals for this month?
