The Workouts Return…

6am-clock1And we’re back…

After again being at the finish line of a marathon event that I wasn’t a part of, the fitness bug has bitten me again.  Go head and see previous experiences here.

Last week was the start of another plan to get back into a workout mode. I decided that I wanted to workout twice a day.  So I made a plan and here is what it looks like:

Mondays: morning run | after-work weights

Tuesdays: morning walk | after-work rowing & core

Wednesdays: morning run | after-work weights

Thursday: morning walk | after-work indoor bike & core

Friday: morning run | after-work weights

Saturday: rest day!! Maybe some Community Yoga with Lululemon Spokane.

Sunday: (longer?) run

So far, everything has been great. My runs have been between 2.5-3.5 miles each and the weather has cooperated so far.  If this keeps up, then I will start to look at signing up for my first full marathon…we’ll see how it goes.

will I win the lottery…into the ING NYC Marathon?

It’s early in 2012, and I have never been one to make resolutions. I don’t think they ever last for people and if I want to make a change, then I don’t need to wait for Jan. 1st.  In November I once again watched the ING NYC Marathon on television and decided that I should apply for the lottery this year.  It just so happens, that the lottery opens at the start of the new year, so this seems like a resolution of sorts.  Applications went live on Jan. 2nd, and I was signed up by 10am.  So I very well could be running my first full marathon this year through NYC, but who knows if I will even get picked, or if I won’t do another one earlier this year.  We’ll see on April 23rd if I am running through the boroughs in Nov. ’12.
