TRAINING STARTED TODAY; LONG ISLAND MARATHON ONLY 16 WEEKS, 6 DAYS AWAY:)

Legs are feeling really good, but I have to start doing stretching/yoga. It's official, Marathon training for me started today. I am running the Long Island Marathon as a tune up, to gain experience for when I run NYC in November. I'm really excited for this race. The course is flat, though many say extremely boring, you run one loop and then repeat. Funny, though I haven't done it yet, I am excited for this kind of a course. Time will tell:)

1:55pm - TM set at 0% incline & 6.0 speed. Ran for 30:00 minutes for 3 miles

M1 - 10:20 161bpm
M2 - 10:20 179bpm
M3 - 10:20 167bpm

Employees were vacuuming again, so HR was all over the place, but I'm not concerned cause I know at this pace on the TM my HR stays well within 65-70%

5:50pm - Just completed week 4 of the Pushup Challenge- modified:
16+18+13+13+22=82 arms r really shaking
Week 5 starts Wed!
Now time 4 situps:)

6:15pm - W1D1 situp challenge complete: 9+9+6+6+20=50
am I the only1who feels like I'm going 2 hurl? LOL hope that's a good sign that I worked my abs

Nice work on both the push ups and the sit ups! I only found out about the sit up challenge today, but have been doing the push ups for a month or so (with a derailment due to illness thrown into the mix). The shakey arms feeling is the best, but I don't much like the anticipation of that max set...
