2013 Week One Review

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!
