My Week in Running

Monday:  I managed to get to the gym before 10.  Just before but I'm trying to get in earlier so you know step in the right direction.  I ran 4 easy and boring miles on the treadmill.  At home I added 100 sit-ups and 50 push ups to my routine.  See if I can make it stick.

Tuesday:  At the gym just before 10 again, meant to get there earlier but Gretchen has no sense of urgency.  I ran 2 miles on the treadmill went to Zumba class then ran another 3 miles on the treadmill.  At home I did 100 sit-ups, 50 push ups and 25 squats.  If you were wondering I am not doing these strength exercises all at once usually done all throughout the evening.

Wednesday:  Kind of had a busy morning but was able to squeeze 3 miles in at the gym.

Thursday:  Out at my parents for the Thanksgiving weekend.  Did 7 miles out and back on BB hwy.  The first 3.5 were pretty good but there were some strong winds at my back so when I turned to come back is was a little rough coming back.

Friday:  Did 4 miles out and back on BB Hwy. It was pretty cold out and I wished I had brought a pair of running tights.

Saturday:  Finally got around to running in the late afternoon and did 5 miles.

Sunday: Back in Independence I had the afternoon without Gretchen.  I told myself I was going to do a long run but I knew I probably wouldn't.  I went for a run at the same time people were leaving the Chiefs game so I got more compliments on my nice ass than usual.  That along with the fact I always feel sick every time I have to leave Gretchen with my ex I cut my run to 5 miles.

Weekly totals:  33 miles, 1 Zumba class, 2 days added strength exercises

Next week goal:  If I run 39 miles I'll hit my goal of 140 for the month but that would be a lot for me.
