Training Update

It has been awhile since I did an update!!  It has been crazy around our house but I am trying to keep with my training.  I am up to running almost my entire 20 minutes on the treadmill & I am feeling great about my progress!!  I have also manged to lose about 3 pounds which was not my goal when started training!!  I am planning do a run outside tomorrow!!  Let's see how that goes.

I am about a month away from the race & I am getting nervous but I am really looking forward to it!!  I just want to finish the race & be able to say "Look what I did world"!!

Trainng Update

This week was a little crazy for training!!!  There was no bootcamp on Monday.  Which kinda bummed me out!! :(

But I was back at it Tuesday.  I ran on the Treadmill for 20 minutes & did 1 1/2 miles!!  Then I did weights!!  My workout buddy, Deb, was there on Tuesday.  I like it better when she is there, because we may not talk while we are there but just her being motives me!!  I hope I motive her too!! 

I went to the Gym on Wednesday, which is normally my off day,  I did 20 minutes on the Treadmill & weights again.  I didn't go Thursday because it was Open House at Cole's School!!

Today I went to Target & got some Running shorts!!  The shorts I have been wearing are not really running shorts.  I will still wear them to Kickboxing & Bootcamp.  But I need some running shorts.

I am going to Kickboxing this morning!!  I hope I will do OK because I haven't been in 2 weeks!!

Tomorrow I will do a run outside!!  Hopefully I will do better this week than I did last week!!

Training Update

I have been training hard this last week.  Thursday I ran on the treadmill for 20 minutes.  I ran about 2 miles.  That is my longest run so far!!!  I skipped Kickboxing on Saturday because we had a lot going on.  Today I ran outside and probably did a mile but I am not sure!!  Running outside is a lot harder than running on the treadmill.

Next week there is not bootcamp so I think I may do another run outside!!  Then 2 treadmill runs.

Monday & Tuesday Update

I am in full swing of my training & I think I am off to a good start!!

Monday - I did Bootcamp.  Oh my GOSH was it a hard one!!  I think I push myself harder this time because I know I need to in order to get ready for my run.

Tuesday - I did a 1 1/2 mile run on the treadmill.  That is 20 minutes.  Then I did the Arc Trainer for 5 minutes.  All in All I did a little under 2 miles.  That is my best so far!!

I have also been trying to what what I eat.  Tuesay I had egg for breakfast, for lunch I had a Chicken Sandwich.  I am also had a yogurt for a mind morning snack.  This morning I had Toast with peanut butter.  For lunch leftover Chili Mac & Cheese.  I am also try to cut back on the amount of Coke I drink durning the day.  I am drinking more water.  Which can get a little boring.  Crystal Light has become my friend!!!  I love all the flavors it comes in!!

Wednesday is my rest day!!  So I will update agian on Friday!!!

Tulsa Run 2012

Well I have decided to run the 5k at the Tulsa Run this year.  I have registered & paid for it so there is no turning back now!!  I was planning on doing it last year but I had a knee injury. 

I have running/walking on the treadmill for the past 3 months & have gotten up to 1.5 miles.  A 5k is 3.1 miles so I am about half way there.  The run is on October 27 so I have plently of time train (I hope).  My dad is going to do it with me.  He has been running a lot longer than I have.  He did the Chicago Marathon several years ago.  I told him I won't be fast but I will do it.  My goal is really just to finish!!!

Like I said I have been running on the treadmill for about 3 months now.  But I also do cross training I guess that's what you call it.  I do a Bootcamp & a Kick Boxing Class.  Here is my weekly training schedule:

Monday - Bootcamp - a 45 minute class at my Gym
Tuesday - Run 20 minutes on the Treadmill (1.5 miles) & Arc Trainer 5-8 Minutes (This kicks my butt) & wieght training at my Gym
Wednesday - Off day
Thursday - Same as Tuesday
Friday - Off day
Saturday - Kickboxing - a 45 minute class at my Gym
Sunday - I will start Running outside this week

This is going to be an adventure!!!  And I can't wait to say look what I did!! 

I will keep you posted on my progress!!
