2nd Week

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Today marks the end of the 2nd week in my 12 week challenge with my neighbors. AND... we had two more ppl join, so now the pot is up to $500! emoticon

I did better this week, but still had a small gain. Although I pretty much expected it, dang water weight. So, next week should be great, however I AM going out of town this weekend. I've very excited but staying in range is always a bit more of a challenge when when traveling. I know I can do it though.

I got my training schedule for the half marathon training yesterday. I had to make some adjustments. They want us running 4-5 days a week, but I know me, and atleast right now, while I CAN run two consecutive days, the second day is awful. So, I'm going to run MWS and do my elliptical and some ST on Tues & Thurs. On Sunday's I'll get up early and take a walk. So it's an off day, but not competely off. I like walking though, and it will be more relaxing than feel like another workout. Now I just have to come up with a ST plan, a work out if you will. I'm going to stop my membership at the gym and just do what I can at home. I have a few weights and I can of course use my own body weight as resistance.

So, today I'm going to look online and see if I can find a ST routine, or just some ST geared to runners.

Happy Tuesday!

    Oh man that pot is going up!

    I think its good that you're modifying the training schedule to accommodate your schedule and needs. That way you won't get frustrated. I also think the ST is a good idea too. Hip flexor exercises!

    And you have a good time in KC!
