Needless to say I'll be bringing my gym gear with me to Dallas. I'm still planning to follow through with my three days of strength training on the Belly Off Dumbbell Challenge and maintain my half-thon training.
Dumbbell Challenge: I plan to stay on my regular schedule of completing strength training on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings. It is an easy to follow plan and doesn't take up a lot of time. I will go to the gym upon getting back from the training class so I can get it out of the way, then I'll either go to dinner or make dinner in my room.
Half-thon Training: My running plan calls for runs on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. The first week I am going to try out morning runs in the hotel gym, which should be easy because the gym will be so close. I think it will feel nice to get the run done first thing in the morning. Another plus is that Dallas is one hour behind my current time so I "really" won't be losing sleep as long as I get to bed at my normal NY time. Then long runs are on Sunday, but I might do them on Saturday depending on weekend events. I plan to take my long runs outside to explore the Dallas area, and I've already found some running routes and populated areas to go. It will allow me to explore the city and get my long run done- I love multi-tasking!
Running Fuel: Oh and I finally decided to take the plunge and order some GloBars from Angela's Glo Bakery. I got two variety packs that have ten different flavors each for a total of twenty bars. Normally Matt and I make our own bars, but I'm running out of time to prepare. Plus I've been wanting to try them for a while, so I figured I'd bring them to Dallas with me. I will most likely be eating them before my early morning runs, so I have some fuel.
