Plinerd/Pauline: 2009 and beyond...

#1 Postby plinerd » Sun Feb 22, 2009 4:24 pm

Few things to note:
1. I've got flab to lose and like to run, so there's going to be a little bit of running going on. I'm currently using the Couch to 5K routine since I am recently getting back to more serious running after some spotty training when playing "new mom". :wink:

2. Because of my child and work schedule, the days I can go to the gym aren't set in stone and aren't reliable.
Mon: work til 11pm, gym after work, have to be up early with child
Tue: no work, go after child in bed, MORE TIME TO SPEND AT GYM!!
Wed: no work, go after child in bed, MORE TIME TO SPEND AT GYM!!
Thur: work til 11pm, gym after work, have to be up early with child
Fri-Sun: hit or miss. Gym opened shorter hours.
This is why I am not currently doing weights more frequently and am doing mostly upper body together and lower body together. I want to make sure I get them in. :oops: I HAVE started jumping rope at work some days to break up the running routine and to make sure I get cardio in on Sunday if they gym doesn't happen.

3. Trying to figure out where/when to do ab work.

4. Starting tomorrow I will add a food log.

I'm at work and will add training info as the day goes on...
