Change of Season, Change of Plans

With fall in full swing and winter fast approaching, it is time to adjust our fitness plans. I have noticed a lot of folks around the blog world posting their goals and plans for how to maintain their fitness during the winter months. While I live in Sacramento and the climate is much milder than where some of you live, I have spent the last 4 “winters” in San Diego, so this winter will definitely be a change for me. To cope, I have a plan of attack.

– When the weather cooperates, I will fit in long runs outside in order to reap the rewards of fresh air and sunshine and keep my distance and fitness level up.
– I plan on being the gym more often and adding more spin classes to my schedule, and swimming more often. Swimming sounds like an odd winter-sport, but when the pool is indoors it is a ear round activity.
Interval workouts are a great way to maintain and improve your fitness level when your workouts move to the gym. Intervals are an efficient way to keep your gym routine fresh.
– Continued strength training
– Continue speed work on the treadmill
– Incorporate hot yoga classes into my routine

My overall goal is to maintain my fitness level and mileage so that when I have another race to train for in the spring, I will not be starting from scratch. I hate having to start from scratch to build mileage back up.

How are you planning to stay fit this winter?

  1. I’m going to mix things up and start taking Pilates from our friend Kim. Wish me luck on that reformer!
