Spring In 2 Action Week 3: Buff Brazen Bunnies

Here we are into week 3 of Shrinkingjeans latest challenge.  It's time to check in and see how this half of the Buff Brazen Bunnies is doing.
  1. Run 2-3 days per week as outlined in my 25k training plan. Still going strong!  I only have 2 runs in since Wednesday, for a total of 13 miles, but that is fine - I'm still totally on schedule (and since I blogged late last week, last Wednesday's run was included in that total).  I managed a beautiful 11 mile run on Saturday.  (Click the link to read about my thoughts and snag a cool coupon.)  It looked like spring was going to show up, but alas, the weather has turned to crapola again so instead of the 5 miles I had planned for yesterday, I did 2 miles of speedwork on the treadmill.  I'm hoping to do that 5 miler tomorrow.
  2. 100 Push-ups Challenge 3x per week. I'm up thru Week 4, day 2 for a total of 113 push ups today, and a max set of 28.  I'm feeling absolute arm fail with these and start shaking on set 2.  When is this supposed to get easier?????
  3. Add 2 (or 3) Nike Training Club app strength workouts per week. None.  Epic Fail.
  4. Really work on getting enough water. Much better on the water this week.  I made myself drink at every mile of my 11 mile run and managed to consume almost 16 oz over the 2 hour run (still not as much as I should, but much better than the 3 oz last week). 
I hope everyone else has had a nice week.  Many of my southern twitter friends have been all abuzz about their glorious weather.  Hopefully, some of that will venture up into my neck-of-the-woods soon.  So, tell me, what did you accomplish this week?


  1. Great job, Bari! I love the action plan you've set up for yourself - even if number three isn't working out so well :P Awesome, awesome job on your 11 mile run!

  2. Awesome job!!!! You totally rock my socks :)

  3. excellent job on those goals. we'll just pretend that the NTC isn't up there ;) things go down easier with a dose of grace for ourselves.

  4. I think you're (we're) doing great despite the whole NTC that seems to be a fail with both of us lately.

  5. Sounds like you've had an awesome week!!

  6. You did great with your goals! As far as my accomplishments - I haven't gotten sunburned yet. ;)

  7. Way to go Bari! Your week sounds very successful to me!

  8. Looks like you had a great week to me with the runs and pushups and increase of water!! It's all a process!!Good job!!

  9. Great job Bari!

    I've got a big epic fail on the whole NTC / strength training too. Ugh.

    You are doing great & you are gonna kick ass at all your upcoming races!
