My bi-weekly run was late night. Yes, I looked. Iím running about once every two weeks right now. NOT ACCEPTABLE. Granted I did accomplish about an 11 minute mile but I was EXHAUSTED after just 3 miles. I even walked a bit to catch my breath. I have a 5k in 5 weeks that my dad is coming to see me run in. He even paid for it. I have to do well. So the training has to step up a bit. I know I should be happy with any time under 35 minutes but I would like to be around 30. No I have not out-grown the need to impress my daddy.
Tazzy was thrilled with our run. She is the other reason I need to step up the training. Sheís chewing. And I think she is boredom eating. She stole a loaf of bread from the pantry yesterday and ate the entire thing. Then brought me the ripped up package! She certainly doesnít sneak anything.
So for my heath (mental and physical), my baby dogís health, and my childish needs Iím making a promise to run more. Yes, I said the word promise and that carries wait with me. I can say I will do something - sometimes I will, sometimes I wonít. I donít break promises. 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week is the minimum acceptable. Now I still donít have a treadmill and the cold is affecting my hip, so I guess Iím going to be doing lots of running in place. I donít know if that will help my actual performance, but it is all I can think of.
In other news, I did accomplish my goal of 100 push-ups yesterday. Barely! Great arms of burning fire I need to work on my upper body! I just squeaked out the last few, and Iím certain it was with horrible form. So I need to come up with more ST on the upper body I will actually do. Guess I have something to think about.
My person challenge for the day? I need a really good sweat with something different. Iím thinking 100 jumping jack and 100 burpees. Iím sitting here really debating if I can do this, but I have to push and push hard to get myself going again. This is certainly pushing!
