5th Week of Training

Monday-  Did a great Insanity Workout!!! Had a great sweat!!

Tuesday- Ran 3 miles on the treadmill at work today. I hate the treadmill but on work days it is the only thing I am able to do.
Wednesday-  Had our team practice at Clemen's High School. I arrived about 30 minutes early and was able to run 1 1/2 miles prior to practice. Tonight Coach Carrie talked to us about race week and day nutrition to make our run the best and be able to finish. We finished off the practice with 2 more miles and some speed work and finally hit the abs.

Thursday- Rest Day (Worked on fundraising stuff all day)

Friday-   Strength Training (Biceps & Triceps)

Saturday- WOW what a day...After a long day at work with no sleep due to being up all night at an accident scene...I was able to make it to practice. I had been up for 26 hours straight at practice time and did not think I would be able to have enough energy to run. I was wrong, I pushed myself and finished 5 miles and felt awesome afterwards.

Sunday- Caught up on sleep today to be able to start the next week strong!!!

Tuesday- Got out early in the morning and ran 4 miles in some nasty wet weather at a pace of 10:34/mile.

Saturday- We had everyone from TNT at this Saturday practice in Cibolo. Our honored heros were out with us which was some great motivation and they did not leave until the last person finished. All marathon runners ran between 3 to 4 miles and the triathlon and cycle teams rode 26 and 36 miles followed by a 30 minute run.

We were separated into interval groups and I was in the run 5 minutes/walk 1 minute group. I was joined by 5 others and ran a great run in some nasty misty rain. Everyone was soaked when we returned. Again due to training for the Dallas half marathon in 5 weeks, I ran an additional 3 miles with Stephanie who will run next week at Disney. Good luck Steph and Jackie next weekend!!!

Sunday- Did a Chest & Back Workout and P90X Ab Ripper X.

2nd Week of Training

Log for Week of Feb 7- Feb 13

Monday- I did a 40 minute Yoga workout to help stretch out the soreness from the previous day of our 10 mile run in New Braunfels.

Tuesday - Chest and Back Strength Training....P90X Ab Ripper X....finished off with a 3 mile treadmill run.

Wednesday - I went to TNT practice tonight at Clemens HS and man was it cold. It was 32 degrees but had a great turnout with about 15 brave soles turning out. We began learning some fundamentals to running and learning to try to take 180 steps per minute. The closet I got was 168.

Thursday - Went to the gym and did a shoulder, triceps, and biceps workout.

Friday - Rest Day!!!!

Saturday - 2nd weekend practice went great. We did a timed 3 mile run to do better training in the future based off of our projected pace. Finished a 3 mile run in 29:02. Everyone finished strong and there were a lot of new people that joined our team today. After practice, 6 of us that are also training for other races in the near future did an additional 5 mile run. I mapped out the course and did not realize what I had done...hills, hills, hills.....and more hills. Everyone paced together and I can feel myself getting stronger and able to run further without as much fatigue.

Sunday - Ab Workout and Yoga!!!!!
