Today's Workout Plan


A few minutes ago, I published this post right here.  It's about how I want to participate in and Color Run in Charlotte this coming October.  I have plenty of time to get into shape.  8 months.  Today is day one of my running-training uh..thing.  I wanted to print out a copy and take it with me, so I just decided to share it on my blog.

Before I start with the workout plan for today, let me just say that this will not be my every day schedule.  I have some catching up to do because I missed three days of working out.    

(1) I wasn't able to work out Friday night.  My parents are on a cruise and they wanted us to go out to dinner with them before they left.  By the time I got home, I could have gone and worked out but it was already 10 pm and I was pooped.
* Sunday's are my day of rest.
(2) I wasn't able to work out Monday because I got drunk at lunch.  Oops.
(3) I didn't get to work out yesterday, Tuesday, because I had a hair apt. as soon as I got off work and I have a ton of hair.  2.5 feet, to be exact.  And it takes a super long time to cut and color that much hair.  I got home, Mr. Robinson had cooked us dinner, and by the time we finished eating it was 9:30 and I had to work this morning.

Working out for an hour to an hour and a half was out of the question on those days.  But, I feel super guilty and want to make up for it.  The good news is that Saturday I did 200 reps of my ab workout instead of the usual 100.  To catch up, I need to do 300 reps today.  No big deal.

And then I'll go home and probably die.  I am not sure how much of the upper-body stuff I'll do.  Today is my first day doing it, so I'll just push myself and keep count so that I can record my progress and create a plan to push myself.

you can do it! :) come spring, I plan to do something similar as well, ease myself into working out - I like the beginner's running plan you listed - I also like the Couch-to-5K program too

Do you have an iPhone? I have an app that I downloaded called "Get Running", it was $1.99 but well worth it. You turn it on, turn your music on and it comes over your music and tells you when to walk, when to run, when to walk again. I LOVE it. Its taken me 5 weeks, but I just finished week 3 last night. I'm only up to running 3 minutes at a time... which doesn't sound like much, but holy crap! Definitely check out that app if you can! And don't get discouraged if you can't move up that quickly in time, you'll get there!
