Today is the last today of my vacation. I ran today and did push-ups yesterday. I skipped Tuesday because I was sick, so I’m going to run again on Saturday instead of taking that day off.
I’m going by time instead of distance on the running plan. I did 28 minutes on the treadmill, which only amounted to 1.9 miles. That seems terrible to me, but I guess I have to keep in mind that when I was on the cross-country team in high-school I only managed a 7 or 8 minute mile, and I was a skinny 17-year-old back then. Now, I’m a fat 42-year-old, so I guess maybe it’s not all that bad. I just have a long way to go.
I decided that when I finally get to 100 push-ups and running 5k a day, then my next goal might be to earn the Presidential Physical Fitness award. I’ll have to find out what the criteria are for it and then decide what it will take to work my way up to that.
Yesterday’s Exercise:Week 3 Day 2(again) of the hundrdedpushups.com plan. 5 sets (10,12,8,8,8). I needed four more push-ups in the last set to actually finish the prescribed work-out. Maybe next week, I’ll finally be able to do it.
Exercise:Week 6 Day 2 (again) of the couch-to-5k plan.
