REcharge your battery with some exercise and a raw diet.

It's summer time so much fun and excitement, but we are tired, burnt out from chasing kids or just the hot sun, whatever it may be.  If you are craving just anything to give you more energy and that little extra boost, stay tuned.  My good friend Wendi has a plan and I bet it will only leave you wanting more.  We are going to post a 45 runnning schedule to get you feeling fit and the best diet ever!!!  Guaranteed to put you back in your skinny jeans and have you feeling 10 years younger.  You have to want this, but what at first might feel like work will turn into a welcome part of your day.  I'm so pumped and I know you will be too if you give this a try.  Come on what do you have to lose?

My apologies...

...to my friend Marie.  I haven't updated the blog, as you can see, and she kindly pointed it out.  I have been a complete blog slacker so here we go, only six more weeks until we run the Ogden Marathon relay, that is coming fast.  Next year we are going for the full marathon (I might wimp out and do a half) so this should be a good start for us. 

Here is our training schedule for this week;

Monday~Run 20 to 30 minutes in Zone 2 (see prior post for zone explanation)
Tuesday~Run 40 to 50 minutes in Zone 2
Wednesday~Run 30 to 40 minutes in Zone 2
Thursday~Run 35 to 45 minutes in Zone 3
Friday~Rest or Crosstrain (remember low impact, especially with this heavy running week)
Saturday~Run 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes in Zone 2 (group run/walk for those who want to come)

Here is what I will be referring to as far as zone intensity for the weeks to come;

  • Zone 1 is what I like to call "Tra~la~la", meaning a pace at which you can jog and sing at the same time.  This is your recovery pace, you can always come back to this point if you need a break. 
  • Zone 2 is our "Chatty" pace, it is comfortable and you can carry on a conversation, but if you are still singing then you're not pushing hard enough for this zone.  If you hit the target on these runs you will be successfully building up your aerobic capacity. 
  • Zone 3 is our "Kung Fu" pace in which we can only manage choppy sentences.  The goal in this zone is to push moderately hard, but sustain the pace for a long period of time.
As you add minutes and reach your target zone, the Racing possibilites are endless Divas!!!

9 Weeks and Counting

  • Sunday~Rest~Recharge Mind and Body
  • Monday~Run/walk for 20 to 30 minutes (Zone 1)
  • Tuesday~Run/walk for 20 to 30 minutes (Zone 1-2)
  • Wednesday~Rest
  • Thursday~Run/walk 20 to 30 minutes (Zone 1-2)
  • Friday~Rest or Cross Train
  • Saturday~Run/walk 30 to 40 minutes (Zone 1-2)
See "Zones" post for the explanation on intensity.  Don't forget to tell us how it's going, log your miles here and tell us how you feel.  Happy racing!

Blog Slacker

Ok between sick kids and just plain laziness I've been failing my Racing Divas and for that I am sorry.  I did plan out a training schedule for the next 9 weeks leading up to our Ogden Marathon Relay, woohoo!  I will share this schedule on a weekly basis so I don't get lost trying to keep up with it daily.  Even if you aren't part of the relay team or are unable to join us for group runs, you can still follow the schedule and let us know how you're doing.  I think you all rock!

~Day 29

It's time for a new training calendar.  I know that everyone has had a rough couple of weeks so I'm taking a poll.  Tell me if you want me to continue adding minutes or do a repetition of the last two weeks training.  Today I ran to Cafe Rio (I know it sounds counterproductive), it is 3 miles from my house and I made it in about 40 minutes jogging for the most part.  It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to make that same run in 30 minutes or less.
