So, here are my steps for the week. Pretty inconsistent, but that’s because of the run on Saturday.
And here’s my current workout plan. I just finished week 16. YAY! This week I’m taking it easy and getting some yard work done. Hopefully, by next week I’ll have a new plan.
Tuesday – 3 miles at the park. 20 minutes of garden work (I’m counting it.)
Wednesday – 30 minutes of weights at home
Thursday – Ran 2 miles at the park
Saturday – 10.4 mile trail run. (Okay, I walked up some of the hills.) My time on the run was 2:38:59 which put me 61 out of 93 women (165 out of 210 overall).
This is my brother and me towards the end of the race. This picture is actually one of the half dozen the website scrolls through – Salt Fork Spring Challenge. It was a really hot day, in the mid 80s toward the middle/end of the race I’d say.
How was your week? Readers’ Workouts is hosted by Joy at Joy’s Book Blog. Thanks!
Wow! That’s awesome that you have a set plan like that. I’d really like to start giving running a try, too. I’ve always wanted to participate in a marathon, but was never in the shape to do it. Now that I’ve been strength training for the past 5 weeks, maybe I should start incorporating running, as well. Pre-planning may help me to actually keep up with it – great idea!
Awesome job! I love that you and your brother ran the race together!
He’s actually a way better runner than me, but he stayed with me instead of running off on his own.
You definitely needed some recovery after Saturday! Ten miles on a trail is a terrific accomplishment. Way to go!
