Week 2 Day 6

Woke up early Saturday morning to fit in a run. Decided to run on the trail around the lake.

I did a 5 minute warm up and then ran with multiple run breaks for 20 minutes. I felt kind of pathetic with all the walk breaks I was taking, but I was running outside (instead of the treadmill) for the first time with hills/inclines in the wind. Part of the problem is that I didn't have a set plan. I didn't decide if I was equaling by current long run (13 minutes, walk break, 10 minutes) or going for 15 or 20 minutes of running. Anyway, I can't say exactly how far I ran before my first run break. Sometime between 8-10 minutes.

I felt some vindication when I woke up Sunday with sore quads.

In other news, hit the one minute plank mark over the weekend. Never done that before. I should be at 2 minutes by next week. Scary!

Texas Fit Chick Boot Camp begins again this week - MWF. I'll run TRS.

Week 2 Day 5

Lazy day. Slept in. I have no trouble getting up to run but I just can't find the motivation to get up and do strength training.

Won't matter for the next few weeks because I am resuming Boot Camp! I'll do boot camp Monday, Wednesday, Friday and run Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Interval run day. Same interval run as last week, I just extended it to 27 minutes by repeating a few of the intervals.

Week 2 Day 3

I was kind of lazy this morning. Did one circuit of the Tone it Up Cowabunga workout plus two rounds of the triple-move clam from last week's Under the Sea workout.. Wanted to do three sets but my legs were way too fatigued. Could have done it as part of a full circuit, but not by itself.

Week 2

No workout on Labor Day except for the required plank.

Day 2 - Run
5 min. warm up
13 min run
2 min walk
5 min cool down

Slow and steady increase. When you are only running 20 minutes, a 10% increase isn't much. Forcing myself to stick with this slow progress.

Week 1 Day 5

20 minute interval run

Also, I'm starting a month-long plank challenge tomorrow. Start at 20 seconds end at 6 minutes!
