All the best and most successful endeavors start with a plan....cunning like Blackadder or otherwise.
I have set the goals....now to develop the plan to achieve it.
To start, I looked at my goals again. Being fitness goals, I also sat down with the gym timetable, organised PT time and my projected work schedule. So the exercising timetable for the next few months will be:
Monday: 5.15 pm CX worx
6.50pm Body Pump class
Tuesday 9.00am 10 K run
7.30pm 30 mins PT (strength based)
Wednesday 9.15 Body Combat class
10.15 Body Pump
Thursday 9.15 Fatburner circuit
5.15 CX worx class
Friday 9.15 Cross Training
7.30 PT (strength based)
Saturday 9.00 am Body Combat
10.00am Body Pump
Sunday REST DAY!
On those Sundays I have a funrun, I'll have Saturday as Rest Day.
Now this is not a set in concrete plan. Plans must be flexible, especially for those pop up events like meetings, family needs, life.....but it is good to have an idea of what to do when and where. Makes it harder to think up excuses!
Nutritionally, I have the meal plans to follow and I am constantly educating myself. I know what foods I can't stop at....( Maltesers anyone?) and when I mindlessly eat (computer snacks for all!) So I can PLAN around those so they are not even a blip on my radar. Not drinking enough water? Make a habit of a glass at every meal and my intake will go up. See? I have a cunning plan...... ;)
Finally, the goal of a funrun a month........
January Tough Mudder 19 Jan
February Wyndham Rotary funrun 24 Feb
March Sri Chinmoy run 24 March OR Conquestathon
April Run the Rock 20 April
May Mothers Day Classic 12 May
June Saloman Trail running 30 June
July The Age run Melbourne 20/21st July
August Saloman Trail Running 25 August OR Tough Mudder Qld
September Saloman Trail running 22 September OR Tough Mudder Melbourne.
October Melbourne Marathon 13 October OR Valley Stampede
November Marysville Marathon 17 November
December Sussan Womens Funrun First weekend in December
That's a very rough plan at the moment as events are still being added to the calendar, as well as I haven't made up my mind which ones I want to do.....for example, I REALLY want to do the Conquestathon but it means staying overnight at Mt Beauty, then arranging someone to look after the kids so Troy and I can do it. He has offered to watch the kids so I can do it but....20 kms up a mountain on my own? Would much prefer him with me.
So there it is. The starter plan. Watch this space......
