Back on the training again...

Okay so Sunday turned into a rest day... well almost I mean I did go to the market which consisted of dodging people, carts, crazies... that counts as exercise, right?! Actually no strength training was really completed on Sunday so that was officially another rest day.

Yesterday was a 3 mile run. I decided to attempt the treadmill again and completed about 1.2 miles which is not bad for me. My pace wasn't bad either... I think it was about a 15 min/mile. This is obviously not where I want to be but much better than I have been doing. I then moved over to the elliptical and completed 1.5 miles in 14 minutes. After that I stretched and did some back extensions and obliques (2 sets of 10 reps).

Today was supposed to be a morning run (2 mile/cross) but rest was needed so instead I'll attempt to do the 2 miles on the treadmill... we'll see. I might get on the bike a bit today since I haven't done that yet...

Wish me luck!


  1. the bike could be a good idea. will work some different muscles. don't get too attached to the elliptical. while it will help build muscle it doesn't really do anything for your running endurance. and we'll need as much of that as we can get for the half marathon...

  2. I'm trying not, really am... it's just so much easier on my body. I am going to try and coplete 2 miles on the treadmill even if some walking is required then maybe cool down on the bike.

    Endurance, what's that?
