I wanted to post my half marathon walk training spreadsheets. I revised them from before because it was getting confusing with the walks and cross training on one spreadsheet so I divided them into two. The walks are a priority of course and I haven't missed any since I began my training.
I've decided that I will do at least one day of cross-training a week which right now includes Zumba and/or weights.
Cross-training is a little bit harder to plan. I have to do my short walks in the evenings during the week and I don't want to be away from home too much in the evenings so I prefer to do weights with my friend Stacey during our lunch hour. So this spreadsheet above has squares marked in black for days I already know are no good, the blue squares are week day evenings that don't work for me (Cub Scouts) and the green squares are appointments that either Stacey or I have during lunch. So that gives me a good idea of what days I have open to get my cross training in.
So as you can see I've been pretty flexible with moving walks and cross training around to fit my schedule. If we have back to school night on Tuesday when I the spreadsheets says I should be walking three miles, I just find a different square to move it to that will work for me.
Now if you'll excuse me, it's 9 p.m. and I don't have anything else that has to get done tonight so I'm going to head to bed and curl up with a book and hopefully drift off to sleep before 10:30 p.m. which sounds like complete heaven to me.
