99/100 Week 3: June 12 - 18
Here's my mileage for the third week...
of the 99/100 Challenge
This was an AWESOME week, full of "bests" and a strong feeling of success. This week solidified my belief that I'm going to do well this year. I'm actually looking forward to the Tri, because I know I am ready.
Two weeks from today, we'll see how well I actually do.
For now, here's what I've been up to this week.
Sunday, 6/12 -
Run - 1.0 mile run
I did a "speed trial" - asking how fast can I run 1.0 mile? Answer - 9:36 (not bad!)
* I also did 15 burpees. Don't know what a burpee is? Click here. Why am I doing burpees? My cousin is doing the 100 burpee challenge (yes, ANOTHER challenge). It's a 100 day program where, at the end, you do 100 burpees in a row. Think it's easy? HA! Try doing 15. Try doing 10! Hell, try doing 5. You'll see they are NOT easy.
Swim - 0.85 miles (1500 yards)
Tuesday, 6/14 - Rest, yes... I forced myself to take a rest day. It's getting harder and harder to do.
Run - 4.8 miles (yes, this is correct... almost 5-miles! I constantly ran for 4.0 miles, and had some walking/running intervals for the other 0.8) This is a new milestone for me... a new "longest run".
Walk - 2.0 miles (Mackie needed a walk... so off we went for a nice easy hike in the woods)
Swim - 1.0 miles (1800 yards) - I SWAM A MILE! It took me 45 minutes, but I did it. Pretty proud of this milestone, too.
** Wednesday was a VERY good day! **
Bike - 10.0 miles (this was ANOTHER good day. I figured I'd just do an "easy 10", but once I got started I felt very strong, so I went with it and pushed myself. I finished in 48-minutes, averaging 12.5 mph).
Hike - 2.5 miles (in the woods, uphill, both ways). Good time with my sister and her 4-legged child.
Hike - easy 1.5 miles in the Forestry.
* 15 Burpees *
* BRICK * Bike - 6.7 miles then Run - 1.9 miles
For a grand sum total of 32.25 miles this week.
My total running miles were 7.7, leaving me with 78.42 miles to go (before Labor Day).
Interesting little side note... I totaled up my mileage for the first 3-weeks of the 99/100 Challenge... if one was to include ALL activities (not just running)... I'd be sitting at 99.95 today. SO CLOSE!
