#MotivateME Monday- Week 3 of Spartan Training

#MotivateME Monday is a weekly link-up co-hosted by Fitness Cheerleader and Running Rachel

Oh hey bloggy friends!

I'm back! No real reason for the quietness around here (ahem wedding planning, tutoring, house stuff, Easter visitors) but I've been planning to post for a while and finally got around to it. I have been trying to coordinate a post for a Monday to join the #MotivateME Monday link up. It is a link up I found over at Fitness Cheerleader where we all post fitness and healthy eating plans for the week and then go spread some encouragement to other participants. 

My fitness plans for the next 6 weeks are really going to be focused on Spartan Race training. On May 17th one of my besties, Erin at GymCraftMed, and I will be participating in the Super Spartan race (13 km 20+ obstacles).  I am following this training plan but I spread it over 12 weeks instead of 8 since I was still doing other things such as Soccer and Yoga in March (and a dance class or two). ow that the race is 6 weeks away I have to get my butt in gear! Since I slacked a little last week (mmm Easter chocolates) this is a heavy training week.

Fitness Plan for this week: use these a lot!

Monday: Density training (week 2 workout 4) Done!
Tuesday: 30 min walk
Wednesday: Strength training (week 3 workout 1)
Thursday: 30 min walk
Friday: HIIT training (week 3 workout 2)
Saturday: Run 6 miles with circuit every mile (modified week 3 workout 3)
Sunday: Density Training (week 3 workout 4)

Well this should be fun... 

For food, I plan to eat as normal, but I would like to watch my sugar intake, increase my water, and eat a little more protein and veggies than normal. Next week I'll do a more detailed food plan.

  1. Looks like you've got a great week of workouts planned out. I like how your rest days are active rest.
