Week three! Half way there! Wow. That means in three more weeks I’m supposed to be able to do lots more pushups than I can right now. That’s kind of scary. Let’s see how I’ve done on my goals for this week, shall we?
1. Running 3-4 days a week – Success. I ran Thursday, Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday. I wussed out on my long run and did 9 miles on the treadmill. It was a good 9 miles, and it probably wouldn’t have been great if I ran outside. It had snowed and it was windy. Not an ideal way to get my head in the game. I’m really trying to push myself on the treadmill so when I go outside I can hopefully come close to my inside pace. I did mess with my incline on this run. I alternated between 1.5 and 2.5 of an incline starting at mile 3 and changed every mile. I *really* want my under 2:00 time on May 1st. But I know that I have trouble really pushing myself to go faster when I run outside. I have to just feel good about the run.
2. Nike Training Club – Fail. I even told Ashley that I would do it on Sunday, and then I totally forgot.
3. 100 pushup challenge – Good on this one. Though these pushups? They are hard! Today was week 4 day 1. I don’t really feel like I’m getting stronger, but I must be because even though I’m having total #bodyfail in my last set, I’m able to get them done.
4. Water intake – Better than last week, but that’s only because I feel like I’m on the verge of getting sick, but T tells me that it’s just allergies. So I’ve been drinking like a mad woman.
This next week looks to be more status quo. I *really* want to get one NTC in this week. Hopefully I can convince myself to get that 15 minutes in. Also? I may be going on my 10-mile run Saturday with a new running friend. She’s run most of the races I have and is planning on doing the half in Reno in May, but she hasn’t run in over a month. Not sure she’ll make the whole 10 miles with me, but it pains me to see someone who hasn’t trained (even if they know better) try and accomplish a long run. I want to feel good after those runs not be in pain.
Anyway. My fellow Bunny, Bari, did pretty well this past week too.
