Training

I still haven't been biking consistently, but that will come. I have been running about 15-20 miles a week. Yesterday I ran 2.5 miles as a warm up at about 9 minute pace. Then did 4 X .25 mile at 5:45-6:00 pace with .25 mile cool down at 10 minute pace. I then did a mile cool down. One Sunday I did 6 miles at 7:30-8:00 pace and I think it was this past Friday I did 5-6 miles at with every other mile at 7:15-30. My running has continued to improve. The biking will come later.

I still have been doing my pull ups for the challenge the PE teacher gave me. I have decided to try for the Presidential Fitness Award as an 18 year old. It should be interesting. I need to crank out 55 situps in a minute, 13 pull ups, a 5:55 mile, a sit and reach of I don't know what, and pretty damn fast shuttle run. It should be interesting!

Happy training!

I could never do the sit and reach part, still can barely touch my toes. Why is that important anyway??? ;)

It isn't! I know some All American's in cross country that can't come close to touching their toes!

Hey Paul! Not sure if you remember me - I was at Mark and Sara's wedding (my aunt is Audry Schwartz :) )...

How do you get your running speed up that fast? I'm having a hard time breaking the 8:00 pace barrier.
