I have been officially training for a little over a month now. It actually has not been that hard. That means it's time to step it up and push harder. This Sunday I actually did push myself a little more. I ran about 8.5 miles in 64 minutes. It was HOT out too and by mile 5 or so I started getting goosebumps... definitely one of the first signs of dehydration and heat stroke. That just made me run faster so I could be finished with the run...
Well, I survived and that was the beginning to the more powerful workouts. I'm planning on throwing in a little more work into my workouts, and runs.
So, that being said, here is what some of my workouts have looked like this past month:
