Week five was a great confidence booster. I had a milestone mileage week with a total of 64 miles. My body feels strong and is functioning well. Here is a breakdown of the activity:
Monday August 12: 6 miles The training is working, after two decent runs this weekend my legs still felt good this morning. I still had pep in my step.
Tuesday August 13: 3 easy miles in the morning then 4 miles at the track (total 7.) I did something a little on the dumb side. At the track workout I really pushed the 200s out of vanity, it would have been an easy way to get hurt. I have reminded myself this is a distance event not a sprint that I am training for.
Wednesday August 14: 2 miles on 15% incline on the treadmill 50 push ups and 100 sit ups.
Friday August 16: 14 miles, I got up early for this one.
Saturday August 17: 11.5 miles in the morning, then Cindy and me drove down to Rockville for the Rockville Rotary Twilight 8k, What a great race! I will be doing this one again it was a lot of fun plus we met up with the dailymile team and had drinks after the race and a little late night food. Good times.
Sunday August 18: As you can imagine it was tough getting up for this run. I didn’t get started until close to noon. It was super hot and humid out. The best thing I can say about this one is that I got it done.
Through my TransRockies Run I am trying to help children in Baltimore that are suffering. Please help me raise funds for the Baltimore Child Abuse Center
Believe in the Run.
