Route 66 5K – Week 1

This week started off in a whirlwind. Monday found me up early and running around town for various meetings almost all day. This forced me to squeeze in my training run over lunch on the treadmill down in the shop. A quick shower and back to work I went.

On Tuesday I was up early so that I could be in Oklahoma City (1.5hr drive) for a work meeting by 7:30am. Thank God it was a rest day.

The rest of the week slowed down and I was able to get my runs in without any problems and capped it off with a gentle 1.5 mile run on Saturday.

Run Log:

  • Monday – 10 mins (treadmill)
  • Tuesday – Rest
  • Wednesday – 13 mins
  • Thursday – Rest
  • Friday – Rest
  • Saturday – 1.5 miles
  • Sunday – Rest

 

Spent the weekend doing some chores around the house including box-blading the driveway, brush hogging the front and back pasture, hand raking about 1/2 acre corner of the back pasture, picking up fallen tree limbs, and various other outdoor activities.

So, in addition to the 1.5 mile long run workout on Saturday, all the added activity gave me a bit of cross training at “Earth’s Gym.”

So far, no injuries or signs of my Achilles flaring up. And…I’ve already lost 4 lbs.

I consider it a good start.
