Hey! I’m running the half marathon in Ottawa’s Race Weekend again this May and I thought I would
bore you blog about training again this year. Fun, yes?
I’m already in better shape this year compared to last year. I bought a treadmill and have started doing weight training at Marshall’s gym, and so I am fitter and stronger. The hardest part about training for me though is staying motivated. It is so easy to skip the gym at the end of the day when it’s cold and dark outside; home is just so tempting when I’m tired after work. Reporting my workouts here though is motivating and makes me accountable too.
So here are the stats for this week. Last Saturday I ran 14 km on the treadmill and today it was 15 km. It is feeling great so far. I did nothing else last week though so I have to try to get back into it for this coming week. Tomorrow morning Tony and I are heading to the gym – we can drag each other there if need be. For the rest of the week I want to do intervals, a tempo run, plus more weight training. It’s a bit ambitious considering the week I have ahead of me, but I’ll be reporting back to you next week.
Anyone else running in May?
