Technically I’ve completed 1 1/2 weeks of training for this upcoming 10K. I started last Wednesday instead of Monday and decided to repeat the first week’s training schedule instead of moving on to week 2.
Now I’m on track – going to the gym everyday except today, which is again, REST DAY. Oh I am loving rest day. First of all, it’s an earned day of rest. I worked my butt off this week. Running 2-3 miles at the gym or around the reservoir and doing strength training. Don’t even get me started on the ab workouts and no sweets or alcohol….oh I am a champion right now.
I’ve even lost 2 lbs. My goal is to lose 20lbs by the time the 10K comes around so I guess 18 more lbs to go. Even though it would be amazing to lose those 20lbs I’m really more focused on toning up and training so that I can complete the 10K.
Last night it took every bit of energy to run 3 miles within 40 minutes. So for now that’s the time to beat. And next week (week 2) I guess I’ll have to start running 3.5-4 miles according to the training schedule.
So things are about to get a little tougher.
But I can handle it.
