I am very excited about the training that I will be doing for the upcoming 10K in late January. This will be the first time that I will run consistently. I have had weeks over the summer and early Fall, when I would run 2-3 times per week (and cycling), but then would be off for a week or two. What will happen when I actually train for five days a week?
Me and my boy! Nice moustache, no?
Week 1 involves three runs, two cycling days, a rest day and a stretch/strengthen day. Yesterday, was the stretch/strengthen day. I had fun playing on the floor with my boys. I'll get more disciplined with weights in future weeks, but last night, I lifted Cuppa Joe (my 9-year-old) above my head about 10 times. Fun for both of us.
I ran with my daughter last week and I am going to get the whole family out this Saturday for a bike ride. I have asked all of them to keep me accountable by crossing off my training from the schedule posted in our kitchen cabinet. Is it still called "peer pressure" if it comes from family?
I'm headed out now for my first run of this week. 2.5 miles.
