Back on January 2, I posted my New Year's goals and issued a challenge to you, my readers or doing something to stay healthy and get healthy for this year. To show you how I am doing, I plan on posting a review of each weeks activities for me this year. This way I can be accountable to both you and myself and show how I am progressing.
Here is week one.
This was a really good week for me. 24 miles run at an average pace of 10:47 per mile with 4,270 calories burned, all from running. One Wednesday and Friday I hit the gym, doing full body resistance training. I did one hour on Wednesday burning 1,149 calories, and 1:30 burning 1,723 calories on Friday. Total calories burned for the week was 7,142.
I wasn't planning on running 7 miles twice this week; the first time on Thursday just sort of happened. I started on a easy run and basically kept on running. Sounds funny I know, but it was a really good run and gave me an indication that I can run longer distances than I thought at this time.
I have a 5K race I am running this coming Saturday, so I'm not sure if I will be running this much next week, but I do know this, I will be running. I hope you are staying healthy too!
Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the day!
