Becoming a Fitness Trainer
On the 29th I met up with my project facilitator. First, we created my meal and running schedule. He told me that a meal plan was just as important as a training plan. He looked at some of his past meal plans and suited them to fit my personal needs. I then told him about all the athletics I have done my entire life and he used that information to guide me into making the training schedule. We decided to start my training on October 1st which give me a month to train. Our meeting lasted a hour and I was very beneficial to my understanding of training.
The typical day of training had me drive to Hopgood park. Hopgood has a half-mile loop with both flats and hills. I would start by stretching and loosening my body then would start laps. I would try to not stop jogging until I have finished all of the miles planned for the day. I would finish the workout by eating a protein bar and drinking water. I followed my training schedule the first week and summed up 5 hours and 30 minutes of running and stretching. My trainer said this week should be the hardest week. The work is helping be become a trainer by giving me a first hand experience on what it takes to get physically fit.
September 29 and October 1st-8th 6 Hours 30 Minutes
This is my project facilitator and I working on my training and eating schedules. I was hoping that he wouldn’t make me train so much my legs would fall off.
Me running the Hopgood Park Track on my first day of training. I was exhausted really easy and saw that there was a lot of work to do.
This is an example of the food that is on my schedule. It was both delicious and nutritious.
I was so nervous when my project facilitator and I were working on m training and eating schedules. I was always suggesting that I eat more and train less, but he knew what he was doing and gave me his expertise.
I did not know how tired I was going to be after only the first week of running, but I know it is necessary for me to complete the race.
By the end of the week, I could feel myself getting faster and healthier.
I feel like the more I train the better the half marathon will be.
