Adjustments

One of the most valuable lesson I’ve learned in the past couple years of my life is the art of being “flexible.” This was a winning trait to have, especially if one is married to a military man 🙂 Now I also have to be flexible in my road to fitness in 2014. After a couple days back at work, I’ve realized that my schedule makes it REALLY difficult to accomodate the workout schedule I had originally envisioned for myself. This doesn’t mean that I won’t workout but that I should reconfigure the schedule. I’m still keepng with the yoga and running (yin & yang) theme but just with a different schedule. Here’s what’s new:

Mon: 6am Yoga

Tues: REST

Wed: 6am Yoga; Run

Thurs: Run

Fri: 6am Yoga; Run

Sat: Run

Sun: Run

Since my goal is to train for a marathon, running 5 times a week is important. I might consider adding a yoga day on the weekends after I’ve mastered this schedule. As you can probably tell, my week is loaded in the beginning of the week – Tuesday is especially hectic :/ I love the idea of the 6am yoga (and I love the energy of the class I went to this week) so that’s what I’m going to stick to.

Will this schedule change again? Maybe. But at least, it’s currently tailored a little better to what my week looks like for the next 3 months or so and I’ll have a better chance of succeeding in my fitness plan! Alright, back to work.

  1. Yoga is just SO complementary to many cardio workouts like running, cycling etc. These hamstrings really need stretching afterwards! Also: stretched muscles contract much more forcefully because they are lengthened 🙂
