Ready For The Good Times
Day 24 - Half Marathon Training - 3 mile run - easy.
No run today... Too flippin' hot!
It's toasty here in Southern California... A few schools were let out early due to the extreme heat. I am without a car, the garage where my Bowflex is set up is like a hot sauna, and only one room in my house has a/c, and it's a cheesy wall a/c, but it's better than nothing. Soooooo, in the only room that had a/c, I did exercises without weights, and worked on regular pushups 4 sets of 10, bench dips 5 sets of 12 (using the coffee table and couch), squats (didn't count but did a bunch) ab crunches, 5 sest of 100. Not exactly to plan but it was too hot to run anywhere today and I couldn't drive out to the gym since DS had my car... I decided to to this workout because I didn't get in chest and triceps yesterday, and since I didn't run I threw in the squats and abs for fun.
My brother called today asking about my running. He said that the closer it gets to the half marathon date, the more people he's seeing on the running trails. He's wondering where all these people have been the whole time, and if they're really ready. I will be as ready as I can be. I was planning on running the whole half marathon in about 2:25. Any time remotely close to that will make me happy. Finishing will make me happy.
