When I’m 80 years old, I want to be fit enough to run a marathon.
Maybe that’s a good plan? Maybe… please, agree with me. Anyone? I did some pilates yesterday, and now I’m feeling like an old granny. After pilates. There probably isn’t any hope for me at all. However, I do think pilates is useful because in that session we do all the (boring*) moves that I avoid during strength training.
In line with my new improved diet, I also ate a pizza. It’s time to get serious since there are only 6 months until the beginning of June, which is the END date for my Beach-project.
Here’s a short list of measures to be taken to improve the likelihood of success for this project:
- morning cardio (as soon as it starts getting light outside… let’s say February)
- small and regular meals (doing that already, but there are some foods that should go)
- quality over quantity in the workouts.
- Increase amount of cardiovascular training – at least 45 mins/day.
The plan for this week looks like this:
Monday: power walking – 60 minutes (
Tuesday: pilates – 60 minutes
Wednesday: body combat + strength training (arms, shoulders, chest) – app. 2 hours
Thursday: yoga – 60 minutes + running 45 minutes
Friday: body pump – 60 minutes
Saturday: drinking glögg (mulled wine) + enjoying the Christmas market (-> lots of walking)
Sunday: pilates - 60 minutes + strength training (legs) – 45 minutes + running 45 minutes
Not completely happy with that plan, but it’ll have to do this time.
* Unfortunately, boring sometimes equals useful.
