My Goals

So here were are 6 months into 2011 and I’m revisiting what I’m doing for me this year. This is the longest that I have gone without a fitness goal.  I got to tell you I’m a feeling a little out of sorts.

This past week I sat down and got clear about what I want to accomplish between now and the end of 2011.

1. Finish the Falmouth Road Race

  • I’d like to run this in under 1 hour
  • I’d like to properly train for this race, the past few years I’ve done a half ass job training for it.Read More »My Goals

Are U A Cardio Queen?

  • by

Not it…. I am roughly 5 weeks out from a NE Classic. Here is where the dollar values double. Eat clean, lift heavy, do your cardio or GO HOME. Everything counts! My cardio has gone from 45 min to 60 minutes 6x/week. I have a confession. I HATE CARDIO. Yes, I hate it. I know that their are many pros and cons to cardio, but its the best way I know to lean out of a show. I can strength train all day long, but ask me to do cardio longer than 30 minutes the excuse monster comes up with some real doozies.  Being on a piece of a equipment for 60 minutes makes me kooky. But it has to be done.  Here’s my plan. I play a ton of mind games.

  • The first game I play is splitting it up.
    • 30 minutes in the AM and 30 minutes at night.
  • I machine hop, if I’m at the gym at all off peak time
    • 20 min of running intervals
    • 20 min step mill (love this machine)
    • 20 min elliptical
  • I watch TV, give me a MTV marathon or VH1 decade count down and I’m hooked (see why I stink)
  • I will do metabolic circuits where I swing a kettlebell for 1 minute and then jump rope for 1 min and rest for 1 minuteRead More »Are U A Cardio Queen?
