Week 3: For those who are still reading, our blog or even this Turkey Training update, is now week three of seven weeks of training. Here's the rundown.
Well, it has gotten easier since week 1, I am no longer hurting from running unless I do squats, which I hate, but they are good for your knees and other parts of the body, which I will not mention in this family friendly blog, but overall I feel good about this Trot. We went from running 35 minutes to 50 minutes. I thought it was impossible, but I am managing quiet well, mind you. This Sunday we are running for an hour. Well, if I ran 50 this past week, I can do an hour; but my hubby announced to me that running is not his hobby, he only does it to loose weight, unlike me is my hobby, so he's decided he doesn't want to run with me anymore. (i think he said that playing World of Warcraft is his true hobby, I say whatever!)
He ran the 40 minutes on that first week quiet well, but says that he's not into self inducing pain so, he's just staying home with the baby. Now, I like to share my passion with someone, so I took my dog Lenny instead. He can hang! Although he was falling a little behind there by the 40 minute mark, he made it just fine, he's a trooper. Lenny needs to loose weight anyways (so does John) but my dog Lenny can't nag to me and besides I am his owner so what I say goes. I wish Billy my Chihuahua dog could hang, but he's so tiny, he's only like 4.9lbs.
So, we are training on hills and let me tell you, they are a pain!!! ugh, the worst when it comes to running, but I must conquer them! We ran the hills yesterday in this cutsie Richardson neighborhood last night and the hills had me gasping for air but I made it. So, anyways, I will update you in a couple of weeks so far we are running 4 miles already and only 4 more to go! yippee! Love, S.S.
