As of today I am at 12 weeks and counting for the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon on November 8th! I have found in the past when training sometimes I actually put on weight so the next 12 weeks I am really going to stay focused on loosing 1 pound a week so that I am 12 pounds less on race day. I am going to eat clean protein and lots of fruits and vegetables. I am going to try and eat my 5 small meals a day.
Over the next 12 weeks I am going to share with you my training schedule and a few of my meals. My meals are going to be the same most of the time with the main items being tilapia, salmon, steak, and chicken. My husband is joining me on the meal plan so it should work great since we are both eating the same items. We are going to try and keep the heavier carbs off the list at dinner time.
One of my go to breakfast items is the Greek yogurt which has higher protein and 20 oz. of water. I am trying to start eating oatmeal but I have to get used to the texture. I have never really been a big fan but I know the benefit is really good.
My goal is to get in two 3 mile runs along with one long run each week. I need to get in two days of weights and two yoga classes each week. I am also going kayaking every other Saturday.
Its also important during training to work out the knots and sore muscles so I make sure I have those worked on. I found the most amazing place that gives sports and deep tissue massages. It really does help!
This is also where I take my yoga classes and stretch classes. I can not believe how much the yoga and stretching is really helping. This was our class the other day from a picture the owner took, love it!
Here's to the next 12 weeks and what should be a great Half Marathon!!!!!!!!!!!!
