On the Crazy Train… Again

This is going to be my accountability post. I have begun my half-marathon training as of April 21st and this is going to be where I keep track of my progress.

I am asking you to give me encouragement and to also chew my ass when I start to slack.I am using my 17-week training schedule that I used last year training for the Steamboat Springs half.

My goal this year is to complete another 13.1 towards the end of August/beginning of September and cut 40 minutes off of last year’s time. I am starting from scratch, I have done no running whatsoever this year!

Week One: TOTAL WEEK ONE: 7.79 miles, 1 hour 45 minutes. :o)
Monday: 30 minutes, 2.21 miles, 120 crunches
Tuesday: 30 minutes, 2.22 miles, 120 crunches – I had to really push myself to finish today, my face feels like it is going to explode from my sinus infection and my legs felt like lead!!
Wednesday: Weekly Weigh-In: -3.2 lbs! Rest/Recovery day.
Thursday: 30 minutes, 2.21 miles, 120 crunches. Weights: Arm exercises x 5, 10 reps, 3 sets. Leg exercises x 3, 10 reps, 3 sets.
Friday: Turbo Jam, 20 minutes.
Saturday: 15 minutes, 1.15 miles, 120 crunches, 60 bridges. Yeah, I suck today.
