Week 1 Summary

Well after a setback being ill over the weekend (including Monday *insert sad face*), I certainly didn’t get off to the best start to my training, and only managed to do 2 runs – 1 of which can only be described as a rush job. And I missed the WWWP5K run which I’d still like to do, albeit slightly delayed. Gutted gutted gutted.

Over 2 runs, I covered a whopping pitiful  distance of 10.09km (6.2 miles).

I think it is a good idea for the future, to set some goals each week (obviously I’m hoping not to be ill again anytime soon). To keep on top of things, but to also keep me going. So here it goes. Goals for week 2…

1. Run at least 3 times.
2. Run a 10k at least once, in one session. My furthest one so far is 7km and it felt okay, just sweaty warm.
3. Do one session of weight training. Either at the gym or on the wii fit. Just something other than running. My upper body strength and my core strength is really truly poor. I genuinely could not do a pushup if my life depended on it. I am told that the better your core muscles are, the less strenuous your running will become over time. Worth a try. Plus, I just love the word BUFF and want to be it. (But not like them women who looks like they’re constantly straining to do a poo. No thanks)
