What a great time though to power up. The Olympics are a great motivator to dig in and get going again.
I am switching up my diet/exercise a bit this time around to be at my best – adding in some serious calisthenics, weight training and 45 minutes of running. I’d like to lose about 20 pounds by May and get back into better shape. I am using My Fitness Pal along with a beginners weight training program. Once I get closer to May, will kick in gear with Hal Higdon’s marathon training. Till then will just run for 45 minutes.
- Warm-up 5-10 minutes of easy running.
- Run hard for 30 seconds 5 times, each separated by 60 seconds of recovery.
- Then do three – five minutes hard running intervals with five minutes of easy running between each.
From what I read, it just takes a few weeks of this activity, performed twice a week.
There will be other races and such before September too.
So what is your game plan for 2014?
