Week 2 of marathon - completed, successfully!!! So far, I am doing awesome!! I have kept up with all my runs, and actually did some cross training. I have to say, I have diversified my cross training. Below is my schedule from last week -
Monday - 30 Day Shred Level 1 and 40 mins of basketball with my son
Tues - Rest (normally a run day, but knew I was running Wednesday)
Wednesday - 4.2 mile run (2.1 of it was the Torch Run for Special Olympics)
Thursday - 3.29 mile run
Friday - 30 mins of basketball with my son
Saturday - 4 mile walk (March of Dimes Walk For Babies), 30 mins basketball with my son
Sunday - 9 mile run
So, all in all, a very successful week. I had only one rest day, and did a lot of different types of cross training.
Beginning May 1st, I am participating in a few challenges. One is a DVD challenge, where I will do 30 Day Shred every day for the entire month. The second is a yoga challenge at Run to the Finish, and thanks to Tara at Balancing Healthy Body, Mind and Soul I have a year's subscription to http://www.myyogaonline.com/ to help make that happen. Lastly, I am participating in a fitness challenge at Balancing Healthy Body, Mind and Soul. I invite you all to join me in any or all of the above.
So bring on week 3 of training. I am so ready!!!!!!
