Week 13 Training Update 2

Monday, August 30, 2010

Well, I feel I did fairly well this week with training. I did some walking every day this week, either 2, 3, or 5 miles.

Then on Saturday I hiked out in the San Mateo Wilderness with my sister. We walked a total of 8 miles with hills. I did take almost 3 liters and lunch with me so it was a bit of extra weight and good for me.

Last night, I went to the gym for the first time in a long time and ran 2 miles and walked another 1.5.

Grand total for this week? Duh, duh, duh...28.5!!!

Hope I can keep it up. I have a busy week ahead. 12 more weeks to go.

Week 13 Training Update 1

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

So I am off to a good start this week. Yesterday I walked 3 miles during my lunch break at work. Today I woke up at 6am and walked 3 miles before work and then 2 more at lunch.

Monday = 3
Tuesday = 5

grand total - week 13- so far = 8. Woo hoo!

Walking and Running

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Well, I have been getting back into the swing of things. After a long vacation I finally started walking this week. Not much, but it is a start. I walked 3 miles on Thursday and 3 on Friday.

Now on to running. Before children I ran. Before my second child was born I ran. I have not ran much in the past three years. Well that is changing.

On Thursday I incorporated a bit of running with my walking. It will take some time to run long distances again. I was only able to run for a few minutes at a time. I have a long way you to.

A dilemma I have, though, is how do I train for the 3 day event and incorporate running, too. In my opinion, running should be counted as cross-training since different muscles are used or used differently. So the days where I cross-train, I will run instead of walk.

One thing is for sure, I need to step it up. Only 15 weeks to go!
