Every week, Joy hosts the Readers’ Workouts at Joy’s Book Blog. Usually I just leave a comment with how I’ve doing with exercising or eating or whatever, but if I want to finish a 10-mile trail challenge in November, I need to actually get serious.
Here’s my plan, more or less.
I’m starting at Week 1. I’m already a little off track, but not bad. Yesterday I ran 3 miles, a mile over the target, but skipped the strength train/stretch. I did take the dog for a mile walk, though, so maybe it’s a trade off? This plan is for a 13.1 miles and I’m not going that far, but a trail run is a bit tougher, I think, than a street one.
Here’s my run from yesterday evening. Yes, I’m slow, but I’m okay with that.
It was hot and muggy, but I did pretty well. Today is 30-min Strength Train and Stretch. I think I’ll try to head out to the gym for a bit, but David wants to get in the pool, so we’ll see. Maybe I’ll do my yoga DVD – I haven’t done that for a while.
Next week, hopefully, I’ll report on how I’m doing. I’m also going to sign up for a 5K on August 2.
If you feel like joining in on the Readers’ Workouts, head over to Joy’s Book Blog.
Slow is fine!
We should go out soon, but have waited for it to cool down
Good luck Carol! Holy cow that would do me in! lol
Looks like a great plan! And you’re off to a good start.
