With some Fall Half Marathons scheduled it is time to get focused to get my hip flexors and IT band stronger. Yes, it is my ongoing Achilles heel. The weakness that holds me back. The scale isn’t budging much to get closer to my race weight but my pace is getting a little better and I owe it to some extra classes I am taking at Prep Fitness.
Most of the time when I see the schedule for the 45 minute session I ask myself “He wants me to do what?” Then a few seconds pass after the shock and awe fades and I realize what he is asking is actually possible. I may not be able to do every set 100% but I do see my balance and strength improving and that is reassuring.
What I have on the Fall schedule so far:
- 9-28-14 70.3 IM AUGUSTA,GA 1st Relay! (I will be the runner-Half Marathon distance)
- 10-19-14 Gulf Coast Half Marathon in Mandeville
- 11-16-14 Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon
What are you currently training for and do you have a plan in place?
Right now I am running 3x a week and taking classes at Prep 1-2 times a week. I still need to work on getting my eating right. Stretching is a must daily even if its just for 5 minutes. Since its hot out hydration is easy. H20 is a must!
