Week two was the week of progression. Although I didn't run nearly as much, I incorporated other modes of exercise into my regimen, hopefully making me a stronger runner in the long run. Here's how I faired:
Tuesday - Strength - Ab Workout - This included sit-ups, crunches and push-ups. My upper body strength is ridiculously low (to me) especially since I used to lift bodies constantly and barely lift anything now. I've got to do better.
Thursday - Rest Day
Friday - Running - .6 miles. Yes, .6 miles is correct. I went out to run and got caught in the rain - literally. I ran home so fast …
Sunday - Rest Day
I ran a total of 8.12 miles this week - not bad considering the other chances I made in my workout regimen. My total run for the Marathon in July Challenge: 24.34 miles! Wow!! I'm almost at my 26.2 mile goal - awesome!
For those of you who are running with me - don't give up! Keep pushing!! You have two more weeks to get your distance in and I know you can do it!
How are you progressing in this challenge?
