Hopefully, it is becoming spring-like where you live. Here in SW Lower Michigan, we have rain, rain, and more rain. We also have the plague in my house this week, which is exactly how I wanted to be spending spring break. Catch the sarcasm there?
Anyhoo, it is check-in day, so here we go...
- Run 2-3 days per week as outlined in my 25k training plan. Check! Even with the plague descending on my house, I did get 3 runs in the week. On Thursday, I ran my first-ever (outdoor) sub-30 minute 5K!!!! Then Saturday I did my 12 mile training run as I was just beginning to get sick and it sucked royally, but I finished it. Today I did a short, 2 mile TM run just to shake out the legs. I've had 2 doctors now tell me to bag my 13 mile run this week and focus on banishing the crud from my body, so no long run this weekend for me.
- 100 Push-ups Challenge 3x per week. I finished week 5 with a total of 175 push-ups. Holy Moly! Yesterday I took my test and hit a max of 53. How in one more week I'm supposed to get to 100 is totally beyond me.
- Add 2 (or 3) Nike Training Club app strength workouts per week. Uh, FAIL. I did take a 15 minute core class at the Y this morning - we used the Bosu for the whole class and my abs were crying.
- Really work on getting enough water. This continues to go well. Being home this week for spring break and remembering to drink is a bit more of a challenge, but my Sahara-dry mouth from not being able to breathe through my nose is a good reminder to fill up my glass.
