Over the next few months I will be chronicling my training along with any other intersting things I can to throw in. One thing this blog will contain will be my weekly mileage, my body weight, training mile pace, long run for the week, and anything else that I think a reader may find worthy. So without further ado:
- Total miles for this week was 25
- Body Weight = 200
- Training at 8:20 pace for long runs
- Long Run = 10 miles ~ roads in Mill Creek (every big hill I can find)
- Cross training (sort of) I started jumping rope for 2 minutes in between (8) 600 repeats - I am trying to get my heart rate increased on the days I run shorter. I also carry 2# "heavy hands" on the 600's. I also started isometrics on off days or shorter days, i.e. sit-ups, push-ups, L-seat dips, and Russian twists.
My ultimate goal is to be around 190# for this marathon. I have not been under 200 for the past 11 years! Stay posted and any words of encourgament would be greatly appreciated.
