Training Update

The last week or so I’ve been suffering from a serious case of writers block.  I’m not sure if it is the hot temperatures, the fact that summer is imminent, or the fact that I am trying to find direction with the blog. I’ve still been running but I’ve been struggling to find the inspiration to write about the running.

But I digress, here is an update on our training…

Our next race is Saturday, June 12th and fortunately this race is a 5K so training wise I feel ready.  We ran six miles this weekend so we should be able to manage 3 miles for the race.

The real training is for the Philadelphia Down & Dirty race coming in July.  The race is a 10K so as long as we continue to run the 6 miles we’ll be ready for the distance…the twist is all the obstacles included in the race!  I don’t know what all will be included but I know there are five-foot hurdles, something called “slick mountain” and a mud pit.  We were told that we should be strength training to prepare so now several days a week Jillian Michael’s kicks my butt with her 30 Day Shred.

And so we press forward and continue training…and hopefully I’ll break out of this writer’s block soon!

p.s. More is coming as a follow-up to the school lunch series
