Back in May, I posted about my own personal fitness challenge for National Women’s Health week. It is now almost 2 months later and I realized that I have not updated anyone on my status. If you remember I signed up for the Rock ‘n Roll St. Louis half marathon on October 23rd.
These past 5 weeks I have been trying to keep up with a training schedule for a 5K race, so that when it comes time to start the training for the half marathon at the beginning of August, I am in decent enough shape to do so. In this training program I am supposed to be running at least 3 days a week. I have to say that I am not succeeding at this too well. I am lucky if I get in 2 times per week.
It took me until now to make the connection, but now it is pretty obvious to me that my poor running and update frequency are linked! From now on I am going to use this link to help hold me accountable. Starting today, I will post weekly what I did in my training program, as well as give updates on how the running and attempt at weight loss are going. What better way to be held accountable than to openly post about your progress and get your friends and supporters involved. SO HERE GOES…
WEEK 5 Training
2 2.5 mile runs completed, both on the treadmill, which is not my favorite at all. I still have to do a run/walk combination, but that is getting better.
WEEK 5 Body Stats
Weight: 230 lbs Height 6’2″
Biceps 15″ Bust 44″ Waist 41″ Hip 48″ Thigh 29″
I am not going to post body stats every week, but I wanted to get these measurements down and out there so that I knew there was no turning back.
I hope you will join me in your own personal fitness challenge and we can motivate each other together!!
