- Watch the nutrition (track what I eat)
- Take vitamins every day
- Drink 64 oz of water each day
- Follow my training plan
- Go to yoga once
Nutrition - the next few weeks I will have to watch what I eat more carefully than I have in the last 2.5 months. My training and mileage is slowing way down and I need to keep my intake and weight in check. I actually asked Shawn yesterday if he thought I should lose a couple of pounds before the race and he yelled at me: "NO!" He said any attempt to do that now would be totally drastic and could mess with the fitness I've built up. Duh, just another psycho question from an amateur athlete. He did caution me about eating too much because of the slowdown in training. So, my goal is to maintain where I am for the next two weeks and not gain any weight before the race. I am going to achieve this by stocking my place with healthy foods and log what I'm eating. I had been really consistent with doing this, but dropped off around xmas time. Such is life...
Vitamins - I've also fallen off the wagon here, which is so ridiculous. It may be a placebo, but I honestly think I feel better when I take my vittles and it is so easy to do. So I just need to do it (and have already done so today, thankyouverymuch).
Water - another thing I'd been good with and dropped from my daily to do list. Just do it. Drink the friggin H2O dammit.
Training - obviously this needs to be done. This week my training also includes stretching and Trigger Point specifically which is fantastic. I NEED to do these things and know how beneficial it can be. So, MWF this week is dedicated only to stretching and TP.
Yoga - this falls somewhat into the stretching category for me. I always feel great afterward too.
