This past week was my first week of official training for the Go! St. Louis Marathon on April 11th. I ran 4 easy miles on Monday (treadmill, during Isaac's naptime), 5 miles on Tuesday (again, naptime treadmill) and then life got in the way on Thursday, so I had to skip the 3 mile tempo run. I got right back on track Friday for 4 easy miles (early morning treadmill run) and the snow and ice began to fall. You know that stuff shuts down there world around here! So today the streets were icy, so I sort of had to do my 8 mile longrun on the treadmill. That distance is really no problem with Teddy Tready. It felt grrrreeeeattttt! I maintained a 12:30 pace except for the one minute of walking at the top of each mile. I was done in no time!
Week 3 of P90X is now complete. I have not missed a single day and Chasen has only missed one. I am very, very proud of us! Week 4 is a sort of a recovery week, so we don't actually pump any iron or do any official ab work. However, it's also not a walk in the park. Do you know what we have to do TWICE? That darn P90X Yoga! Man oh man that is tough stuff. But I know it is making me a better, more flexible athlete (or at least that is what I am telling myself). Actually, I have wanted to try yoga for ages. I just never knew how tough it would be for me!
