Staying true to my first round of goals for 2012, I have signed up for my first 5K race of the year. Once again, Jason and I will be running the Nicolet Bay 5K, part of the Door County Half Marathon event. We ran it last year and really enjoyed it. I’m excited to participate again this year and, of course, to visit Door County.
I start training this week. Because I’m a bit of a pansy, I move my workouts indoors at the first snow. I have an elliptical and plenty of fitness DVDs to keep my busy, but nothing beats running and walking outside.
I will be following Hal Higdon’s 5K Novice Program again. My last time out running was December 10th. So while I would love to challenge myself with this race, I’m not interested in overdoing it after my winter break. My training schedule looks like this:
- Mondays – Booty Barre™ Beginners & Beyond DVD
- Tuesdays – Run
- Wednesdays – David Kirsch’s One on One Training: Upper Body and Abdominals DVD
- Thursdays – Run
- Fridays – Karen Voight’s Full Body Stretch DVD
- Saturdays – Run
- Sundays – Walk
As always, I’ll be tracking my training on dailymile.
