Well, I thought I’d give ya’ll a little update on my training for Pat’s Run. I’m pretty much back up to speed now. It’s been…what? A couple weeks now? I’m now running 3 miles at about a 9-9.5 minute pace. Call me a ‘Slow Poke’ if you dare…but I am just not a runner. Every time I run I’m reminded of why I hate doing it, but then I tell myself that I’m doing this for a good cause! (And it’ll soon be over…)
As for strength training, I’m currently doing a month of high volume training and it kinda sorta sucks. I did 65 squats yesterday…. Yes…65 squats. I was sweating like a beast and it took me forever to complete. Next Tuesday I’ll be doing 70 squats… I am not looking forward to it, but I must admit, it’s quite a challenge. Obviously my load isn’t quite as heavy as I might normally lift, but that’s okay, I’ve got tension on my side.
