Leave it to the Sisterhood to coincide the start of the worldwide Olympics with their own version to keep us moving and healthy. I have signed up for an event a day over the next two weeks. The event I will compete in today is a 3-mile run. This is lovely because Friday’s are normally a run day for me. Although today is my tempo run and that means alternating with a slower pace, I’m going to attempt to keep my “slow” as fast as I can. Tomorrow I’ve signed up for pushups. As part of the hundred pushups challenge that I’ve been working on for the past 5 week, I have an endurance test this weekend to do. Might as well count it towards my pushup event, Olympics style. Sunday is technically my day of rest, but they have a 1-mile dash scheduled, and really, what’s a mile as fast as I can go?
My official training is going well. I’ve been staying on top of my runs and really pushing myself for the shorter runs. I have gotten down to my best 1-mile time of 8 minutes. I participated in the Sisterhoods Tworkout, which is their twitter workout during the breaks of The Biggest Loser on Tuesday nights. We had to do 3 minutes worth of lunges and 3 minutes worth of stride jumps. My butt is still sore.
My fundraising is trucking along. In the last week I have collected another $90 in checks and some more online donations. Thank you so much everyone for your support. I can’t believe how close I am to the halfway mark of my goal! It is so exciting!
So on that note, it’s time to get my day started so I can get to my run this afternoon!
