Back on track Monday-Setting the plan in motion…


Howdy everyone! I hope everyone is having a Marvelous Monday! I am just getting back from a wonderful vacation with my sister and friends. We closed out her 40th birthday month with a trip to Miami! We had a blast!



We are now planning an end of 40th year trip to Costa Rica…yup we sure now how to celebrate and when we do, we do it BIG!!

During June and July, I was pretty relaxed with my eating, weight training and running. I have to say my body enjoyed the change up and relaxation and didn’t rebel too much-lol! I had a bit more fluff than I wanted in the med section but overall, I was beach ready in Miami.


While in Miami, I got in 2 runs (Lawd was it humid!) and 1 HIIT. I am proud of myself for sticking to me schedule while on vacation. I didn’t feel pressured to do it at all and workout because I wanted to.




I even did a few laps and upper body in the pool.


Well the end of vacation means back to reality on all fronts. Eating, running and weight training. During the summer, I intended to do some research on Jeff Gallloway -Run Walk Method but I didn’t so I think I will continue with my modified Hal Higdon for my 1st Fall Half (Brooklyn Half)and look to use the run-walk for my December half (Rehobeth Half). We will see how the knee holds up for the 1st Fall half- I may have to modify some more..we will see.

Last week officially started my training for Brooklyn Half. I totally winged it on my runs and mileage but will look at the schedule to see where I should be and what I should be doing. I am going to stick to running 2 days a week and 3 days a week (alternating weeks).  I will continue to incorporate 2 HIIT days and a full body weight training day each week.

My training schedule will look something like this:
2 day run week:
-2 rest days
-2 run days
-2 HIIT days
-1 Full Body Weight Day

3 day run week:
-2 rest days
-3 run days
-1 HIIT day
-1 Full Body Weight Day

As far as eating, I have decided to work on eating within a certain calculated macro count of protein, carbs and fat. I think that I am not eating enough to fuel my body for my active lifestyle and so I am hoping to use these calculations and counting to get me accustom to eating enough to fuel my body.

All a work in progress and I am looking forward to documenting the progress.

How has your summer workouts and training been?. Do you have any races scheduled for the Fall?
