Dumbo Training: week 2

Happy Funday Sunday! Hope everyone had a great weekend and a great Mother's Day!

In an effort to keep myself more accountable for Dumbo Training, I've decided I am going to keep track of my weekly progress every Sunday (since all the cool kids are doing it ;) even if it means shaming myself into doing more. I feel like this is a good thing to help me focus and see what I'm actually doing vs what I think I am. This is the first time I'm switching up the old formula, so I'm excited! 

Since it's technically week 2 according to the runDisney Jeff Galloway plan, I will stick with that so as to not get us all confused. Sound like a good plan? 

Mon: Rest
Tue: 2 Miles/ 45 min PiYo class
Wed: Rest
Thu: 2.5 Miles/ 45 min Zumba class
Fri: Rest
Sat: Rest
Sun: Japan Day 4M

Yikes! There are a lot of "rest" days in there! Originally, I had this entire paragraph typed out with a ton of excuses but decided against it- because honestly, for me, that's a pretty awesome week if I do say so myself! Technically, that's 2 workouts on Tuesday and again on Thursday. What what?! It is week 1 of training for me, so I think I kicked it off quite well. 

How are you keeping yourself accountable during training for your next race?


  1. I am the worst when training for events. I have a half marathon next week and my training has lacked tremendously. I keep accountable mostly via twitter and Facebook.

    1. Good luck next week and have a great race!

  2. Last year, I kept a spread sheet of miles run when I was training for NYCM. I also track my weight loss that way. This year, I started tracking right from January first. I love adding the miles up each week. I'm a nerd like that. :)

    1. I have the plan on my calendar with what I "should" do. . .but I think this way, I'll see what I actually do. That's exactly why I want to do it!

  3. Uh, yeah. That is definitely an awesome week in my book! I generally have a spreadsheet saying what I SHOULD do but then I go back and correct it for what I actually did. It's not often that the should matches up with the actual. Ha!

    1. haha! I have the exact same problem, so this new thing will be my way of staying accountable.
