Here we are 5 days into the Janathon and I’ve already failed. Yay me. I ran 3.1 miles on Day 2 and logged it on Running Free, but I didn’t blog about it. So I’ll share my stats three days later.
Ave Pace 10:23
Max Pace 8:37
My family and I went to Universal Studios that day and there was just no time for blogging between rides. Do I get extra points for walking around an amusement park? So, less than a week into Janathon and I’ve already lost.
This is where you tell me that no one is a loser if the Janathon encourages you to move. Um yeah….about that….
On Day 3, a cold front rolled through, so I did 31 minutes of Wii Fit plus 140 crunches and 30 pushups (which took about ten minutes). I don’t run outside in temps below 40. I know. I know. No excuses, but I’m a fair weather runner. Listen, last fall I got over my rain issues, so give me time. I may come around the cold too.
But I have to tell you. I’m not crazy about this Wii Fit thing. I can see how it helps with conditioning, but I didn’t feel like I really worked-out. My girls love it, though. So, if it gets my family moving then that’s a good thing, right?
Um yeah….about my whole family moving…
On Day 4, my SIL and niece came over and did some Wii Fit exercises with my girls. Notice I said “my girls”, because I nodded off on the couch waiting for my turn. Yep, that’s right. I got nothing for Day 4. Not even 1 sit-up or pushup or a 1mile walk. Nothing. I’m a Janathon joke and Wii Fit failure now too. I know. I suck.
But never fear! I redeemed myself today on Day 5 with a 3.1 mile run! Well, I sort of redeemed myself because I did 3.1 miles on the treadmill at my friend’s gym (@fmc3) and it took me freaking 47:18! Are you f*cking kidding me? WTF is that?!
It was so pathetic that my Garmin didn’t even register the run. I think about halfway into it, my Garmin said I went 19 feet at a pace of 47:00 minutes. How sad is that?! I embarrassed my Garmin. And you should have seen how hard I sweated! But at least my sweat drops didn’t become icicles hanging off my nose running outside in that frigid 28 degrees air.
After my pathetic run, I decided to take advantage of the machines in the gym. I busted 4 sets of leg extensions, leg curls and lateral pulls. That felt good. Lord knows, I need the strength training.
I also added some sit-ups and pushups into Day 5’s work-out with 180 crunches/pilates and 30 pushups.
