Alright. I am officially training for the DC Half Marathon.
I decided on March 1 that I wanted to do the March abs workouts that Shrinking Jeans posted about. I did the workout on Monday (after my marathon) thinking I’d catch up since there was nothing on Sundays. And then I didn’t do anything the rest of the week. I started over on Friday. So I’ll be a week behind their workouts!
I did very little (read: nothing) during the week. I had intentions of running at lunchtime on Friday and then forgot my running socks and sports bra at home. I could have found a way to get socks, but not an extra sports bra, so I sat it out.
Saturday – 2.5 miles in 30 minutes. This was nice and slow for me. My knees were still a little sore on the downhill, but I ran in my neighborhood, chatted with neighbors and even encountered a friendly pig. It was a good short run. Also did a short abs workout. In addition to all that, we took a one mile walk in our neighborhood. Go, us!
Sunday – 3 miles in 31 minutes. Another easy run. I wish I had taken my iPod, but I’ve misplaced it since last Sunday’s race. I’m loving daylight saving time at the moment. I did this run at 5:30 p.m. and had so much daylight to spare! Also, abs work. Oh, and another walk in the neighborhood for one mile. (Four miles total today!)
Monday – It rained, and I was anticipating the rain much later in the day. With no desire to get sick, I called off my run and chose to do something different. I ended up doing some Wii Fit exercises. Most of them were strength exercises and abs exercises. It wasn’t much, but it was something. And that counts.
I’m hoping I can get a few lunch runs in this week. We’re going to be traveling over the weekend and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get a long run in (so I may do that on Thursday during lunch.) My long run this week will be 5 or 6 miles.
Finally, linking up over here this week.
