under my own steam

a blog about moving through the world

saturday, january 10

Today is better than the middle part of this past week. 

We (Mer, John and I) did push-ups today (22, 30, 20, 20, 30) and then Meredith and I ran.  We are doing intervals – run a quarter mile easy, run faster for quarter mile, then easy, then faster, then easy, then faster.  It’s only 1.5 miles right now.  But, we’re not working on distance – we’re working on speed.  I think we are going to keep this distance for about a month and focus on speed.  It was a total of 17:46 (2:52, 2:20, 4:07, 2:21, 3:44, 2:19).  The quarter miles that were easy ones involved some walking too.  It’s hard to see those numbers sometimes (the slow ones) but it’s pretty exciting to see the numbers on the “faster” ones.  Those are sub-10 minute mile times.  Yay.  I know I can’t do that for a whole mile yet but that’s okay. 

Also – 400 sit-ups and 3 sets of biceps and triceps – 25 each at 8 lbs – while watching football.
