You may be thinking to yourself.. has she gone mad?? It’s THURSDAY, not Monday!
Nope =) I haven’t gone mad (yet), but I just couldn’t wait to share this awesome idea that Raciel and I have come up with.
We both have some pretty big goals this year. For one thing, we both want to set PRs for all distances. I personally want to set a huge one for CIM, my redemption marathon, in December. My goal is to do it in around 5:30. Raciel also has an uber crazy October this year with a half marathon (RnR LA), her first sprint triathlon, AND a full marathon (Marine Corps) all coming within a week of each other. Craziness!
So, to say that we must be as fit as we can possibly be to achieve these goals is a total understatement.
We’ve decided to share a training calendar on Google calendar so that we’re both aware of what the other needs to be doing on any given day. There’s nothing like being accountable to someone else to get your butt into gear. At least that’s what we’re hoping! =)
If we aren’t doing our workouts… the virtual metal spatula must be broken out! For those unfamiliar with the metal spatula, no, Raciel and I aren’t into anything kinky! It’s a reference to the movie Run, Fat Boy Run. There, Dennis (the main character) is being trained by his BFF and his landlord, who rides a scooter next to him and smacks him with a metal spatula every time Dennis tries to walk. LOL
So yeah… bring it on! You guys now know what we’ve got to do! FYI, Raciel’s workouts have (RaD) in front of them. Feel free to leave your own metal spatula comments if we aren’t doing our workouts!
