        Thanks, Tom! This thread is sort of like the "It takes a village" concept I guess.

            Hi everyone,


            Mon: strength training chest/triceps/shoulders

            Tue: 1.7 kilometer try-out run with a very happy Spooky. Legs were up for it, but I got out of breath easily, so despite the short distance, I needed a couple of walk breaks.

            Wed: strength training legs + abs + 20 min yoga stretches

            Thu: 2.17 kilometers on the TM - much better than Tuesday, though TM running is cheating a little bit + a 20 min boxing workout

            Fri: I had a boxing w/o scheduled, but I did that one yesterday, so I had a day off Wink

            Sat: 2.66 kilometer doggie run + strength training bis/tris. Will be off later this afternoon to meet up with henrun and mrrun in Amsterdam.


            I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

            Run the day, or the day runs you.
