Workout - 1/30/12
Treadmill - 1.86 mi in 35:00
So-so workout tonight. I started feeling my right knee after a mile and a half, so I cut it a little bit short. Since I’m still not working out on a regular basis yet, I don’t want to do too much too soon.
Workout - 1/24/12
Shadowchase Running Club - Track Workout - 3.34 mi in 50:23
Felt great tonight!
No slowing down
Just one foot in front of the other
Workout - 1/11/12
Boot Camp - 1:06
A lot better tonight than the first night. This time, I did two things differently, and I think they helped -
1. Kept a close eye on my heart rate. Rather than just let it shoot up to 170+ like Monday, I lowered the intensity a notch or two once I saw it above 160. It only got above 170 once, and then only for a few seconds.
2. When getting back up after stretching on the ground, I got up slowly. I think that’s the reason I got so light-headed last time - getting up way too fast after stretching.
Workout - 1/10/12
Shadowchasers track workout - 3.24 miles in 51:21
Warm-up - 4 laps
Workout - 5 laps
Cool-down - 3 laps
Felt good today. The weather isn’t too cold, which really helps. Not too much else to say, other than I believe that yesterday and today have been my first back-to-back workouts in many months.
Workout - 1/9/12
Boot Camp - 1:02:00
My employer offers a “boot camp” two nights a week, which is mostly cardio with some light weights and stretches. I’ve tried to do it in the past, but stopped after one or two sessions. But not this time - I have a half-marathon to train for, and I had no problem getting a solid, hour-long, practically-non-stop, felt-like-I-was-going-to-keel-over-and-die workout in.
Ask me tomorrow how sore I am. :)
Workout - 1/7/12
Treadmill - 1.90 miles - 35:20
Didn’t want to work out today, but I kept thinking of the half-marathon coming up and how little time I have left to get ready.
Not walking the half-marathon is not an option.
Workout - 1/3/12
ShadowChasers Track Workout - 3.4 miles - 54:50
Back to the track tonight. It wasn’t super cold, but it was cold enough that I had to wear a jacket for most of the workout. I have a sweatshirt and sweat pants, but they were almost too big on me 30 pounds ago - there’s no way they’d still fit.
Sibling peer pressure
Walking - treadmill - 2.17 miles in 40:07
My siblings (my sister and brother who both finished the half-marathon in Las Vegas last month) informed me over the holidays that they’re going to come to Modesto and run the Modesto Half-Marathon in March. It would look really bad if they came to my town and ran and I just stood on the sidelines and watched. So, that means I have exactly 76 days to get ready for my first half-marathon…
Happy New Year’s!!
