The competitive bug to run, more than walk the Half-Marathon is growing inside me. I feel the need to stop the excuses and run. I’m still battling the days where I think, “Why am I doing this? I can sit out today. ” Those days are becoming less as my mental resolve is strengthening. It feels great. My total running mileage this week was 12 miles.
Sunday: I completed a 5 mile run on the treadmill in under 50 minutes.
Tuesday: 3.5 mile treadmill run. An additional 10 minutes on the Cardio Wave.
Wednesday: Light stretching and simple dumbbell routine at home.
Thursday: Nothing. I succumbed to the do-nothing bug!
Friday: Fast paced walk with friends in the morning for 50 minutes. 3.5 mile run on the treadmill with an additional 10 minute Cardio Wave workout.
Saturday: Beautiful day outside. Worked in the yard and played outdoors with the children. It was 60 degrees.
Overall, I’m feeling good. I’m excited to feel the improvements in building running distance. I’m looking forward to the nicer weather and hitting the Greenways. My goal this week is to find balance and make sure I get my full strength training routines accomplished. Two months are already down! Welcome to March. Spring is just around the corner.
