borrowed stole the idea for the Target Practice Friday series from the ladies over at Fit.Fun.Femme. I do things a little differently, but ultimately it’s where I share my progress on my short term goals, a.k.a targets.
I hope you all are getting ready to enjoy the weekend! I have an event-fulled weekend ahead of myself… everything from Knotts Scary Farm (Gosh! I love Halloween!) to a baby shower. While I am looking forward to the busy weekend ahead, it leaves little time for workouts. That leads to my this weekends Target Practice…
Improve Pace - I didn’t focus on speed this week because I was recovering from my half on Saturday, but I did read Megan’s 7 Tips to Improve your Running Speed. One thing I learned from the post is that I really need to be patient with myself because improving pace won’t happen over night.
Handstand - There was a lot of handstand training this week. With the help of my personal trainer, I took practicing handstands away from the wall. I was almost able to hold myself up all by myself. I got in about 5 seconds!
Half Marathon – I completed my first half marathon on Saturday!!! It was awesome and you can read about it here. I have my Las Vegas Rock n Roll Half in four weeks! My plan is to run 10 miles this weekend, 12 miles the next two weekends, and a easy 8 miles the weekend before the race.
Other than a few salads, my eats have been pretty bad this week. There were cookies, pizza, and pasta… next week will be better!
Enjoy your weekend!
