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!!
