So here's a quick overview of workouts this week:
Monday: 40 minutes of strength\stretch training. Pilates arm and stretch workout, followed by ab ripperx.
Tuesday: 2 mile run - first run in our official half training!
Wednesday: Lower body and arm work, with ab ripperx
Thursday: About 2 mile run - Luke's shin splints started acting up, so didn't go as far. Jacob and I did some splits as well.
Friday: Pilates arm segment, stretching, and ab ripper. Yes I am working on my noodle arms, and we try to do ab work on our off days.
Saturday: 3 mile run. Slower time, because we had to do the hills and those slow me down, but maintained a steady, strong pace, so still happy with it!
We're probably going to have to switch our long Saturday runs to Friday, because we are beginning a Saturday afternoon class with the ladies from Church, so won't be able to run then. It should work out fine!
I'm still a bit scared about our half training. I'm not worried about getting injured; I'm extremely serious about stretching, no matter how long\short the distance. I even sometimes ice because the terrain is often uneven where we run. Almost anything to keep from possibly getting injured!
I'm a bit scared because...it's a long distance, and progresses fairly quickly. When we were training for our 10k, it seemed like it had us running 2 milers every single run, and took forever to build up to the 10k. Great for building your base, but sometimes frustrating and boring. That won't be a problem now, though! If I have trouble with a particular week, I know we can repeat it - it's just a little fear of the unknown distance.
I think that before too long, I'm going to do a nice picture post for you all. Heh heh. Now you have time to mentally prepare. Until that time, here's a little comic for ya!
I think this applies to way too many women!
