Weekly Goals - (3.2.09 - 3.8.09) and other stuff

Monday: Swim * Push-up challenge Tuesday: Run 3x[8run, 2walk] Spin (30min) Core (30 min) Wednesday: Swim (at least 2000m) Spin (1 hour) maybe Push-up Challenge Thursday: Run 3x[10 run, walk 2] Yoga Friday: Swim Spin (1hour) Saturday: Run 2x[Run 12, walk2], run 10 (I'm really excited about this one. Might actually get in more than 3 miles! ) Sunday: OFF Full week ahead, but I am ready for it. Similar to last week and I'll tell ya, my body was aching for some hard workouts after having to take the time off. It is responding very well. In other news..... I weighed myself this morning and I was 138.5 - I think I truly have a few pounds of excess to loose and figure most of it will come of in the first couple of weeks during "detox." The rest is just toning. I'm only 5'3" so there is no reason I can't hover around 130, even with a medium build. I think I failed my accounting test. yay me! Good thing I spent all weekend studying for it. Crap! The good news (misery loves company) - most of the students think they might have failed it too. The knee is doing great! No pain during my run on Sunday - 3x[7min run, 3min walk] *I heard about a swimming website called swimplan.com. It's supposed to customize swim workouts according to your swim level. Before it makes any workouts you have to do an initial test. See how many laps you can do in 5 minutes. I did mine this morning and I did 6 laps (150 meters). I have no idea if that is good, bad, or average. I am assuming average. I didn't want to go all balls to the wall and then have every swim workout they make for me kick my ass to no end. We'll see how it goes.

I'm out of the pool for a couple of weeks due to tattoo, but I'm excited to do a 15 minute test when I go back & try that site out! Thanks for sharing.

Great idea to project your weekly goals. Watch out, we may be checking up on you to make sure you're doing it. ;)

I always love new swimming sites. Thanks!

Sounds like good week ahead. I agree about the hover weight, there is no reason I can't hover at 150 (I'm 5'11) but sadly I'm a FEW pounds over that at the moment.

looks like a nice workout plan for the week!

I am 5'2.5 and my goal weight is 130 as well...needless to say I am above that now..need to lose the liquor and I think I should be ok!

Glad the knee felt good during your run :)

Yay for swimming! That's great. I've never tried the site, I'll have to check it out. I'm always looking for new workouts. Same old shiz gets old.

Those are some great goals. I see you are undertaking the push up challenge like many others I have read about-might have to check that out. Good luck.

P.S. I LOVE the title of your blog. No need to go into any detoxes of sorts, just cut calories elsewhere. I mean, nothing is worth giving up the good stuff :)
