Week six! Holy, time is flying by pretty quickly - entire training cycle is 18 weeks I believe, so I'm 33% of the way there. We were chatting with one of our neighbours who's also a runner (and an Ironman) and he commented that there's no feeling like crossing that finish line at the end of the marathon... can't wait to see that for myself.
Sunday - 20 mins HIIT
After a weekend full of debauchery at the cabin and not a smidge of exercise, I felt the need to just move and break a sweat. Normally Sunday is a rest day, but I hopped on the stationery bike when I got home and ticked off 20 mins of HIIT. Felt SO much better after.
Monday - bootcamp
As usual, Sarge kicked my ass...we did hundreds (hundred pushups, triceps, lunges, etc.) and hills galore. My legs were super sore because of the all the lunging, but I don't mind as it just means I'm getting stronger.
Tuesday - 6K run treadmill
Wed - 19K run outside
Whew! I blogged a bit about this on Wednesday night, we were so zonked after doing this mid-week run. We've got another busy Saturday coming up with a friend's wedding, but we've got 23K on the schedule and not sure if we can fit that in on a weeknight...we'd be running until close to 9pm, so we decided that we'll run on Saturday instead and drink lotsa coffee to stay awake through the day's festivities.
Thursday - rest
Yes...I was bad and skipped bootcamp. D wasn't there as she's in Disneyland so I jammed...what they say about doing stuff with a friend is so true, because you don't want to not go and disappoint them. So even knowing that, I just didn't feel like going and decided to do a treadmill run at home instead.
Another thwarted run...but thwarted by myself. I had all the intentions of doing a 10K run on the treadmill, but just couldn't drag my arse out of bed to get 'er done before I had to head out to meet a friend for coffee. Yes, sometimes I really suck.
