But let me explain. I am not going to change the frequency of my runs. I'm not even going to change how many miles I am planning on running - for now. I am just going to change my long run on Fridays a bit. I started the Bridge to 10k running program today. It's very very similar to the C25k program. Even down to the I-look-ahead-and-freak-out part. It just increases endurance and hopefully my speed a little at a time. I love the set-up of the C25k, so I am thinking that the B210k will be just as awesome for me. As the distance/time increases on the B210k plan, I will slowly up the ante on my other runs throughout the week, too.
I am on Day 3 of 4 this week, and am pretty happy with what I've gotten done. I have my first 7+ mile week, and I ran 3.15 miles this morning on Day 1. It was a slower pace than my other 5k from 2 weeks ago, but that's okay. I walked less than I did during that one, and I was sore sore sore from my day yesterday.
Monday, a friend gave me The Wave. It really challenges your core, and I need all the help in that area that I can get. I didn't have a chance to try it out until yesterday morning. Let me just say this - doing lunges and squats while trying to keep you balance on a rocking platform is interesting. And one hell of a workout. I enjoyed it though. Then, after I picked the Munchkin up from preschool, we headed to a friend's house for a play date. About a mile before her house, I got S.T.U.C.K. in a huge snow drift. In my defense, the road looked okay. I could tell it had snow on it, but I never ever would have expected it to be like that. I managed to call her before the cell phone died (oops! guess I need to make sure I always have the car charger, huh?) and tell her what was going on. She sent 2 of her kids over to us with sleds and I pulled 90 lbs. of kid through 3 and 4 foot snow drifts to her house. Talk about a workout! I woke up this morning just aching. Quite the adventures we have out here in the frozen tundra!
I am excited that this is our 46th blog post. Heidi and I have been blogging away for almost 4 months. Our 50th post is just around the corner! And in case you've missed our
