Got my day rolling with a 6 mile ride in 29:46. I tried a new area on the Air Force base; had heard that it was a good ride. I knew some of the area, and that it went along the flight line and was relatively flat. Someone documented the full distance as 15.2 miles. I may tackle it in the near future.

I took a midday nap yesterday, and it wiped me out.....I was restless untill about 2 a.m. Slept in till about 8 and wanted to get in my workout before I was too drained.

[B]Endurance[/B]

1 mile time trial for this month was in order. My last time was 6 October and clocked a time of 7:22, so that was the time to beat.
Ran a lot more fluidly this morning. Recorded a 7:17:pepper: I still think that sprints will help me but I haven't been doing them....

My Xtreme Boxing instructor has gotten me hooked on boxing!!! Looked into purchasing a double end bag, but wasn't sure of how well it would help me. I put one together using an old compression bag, three rubber balls and bungees. I anchored it on my power rack and used a 70# KB for the base. It worked pretty well. Now, I'll use it until I find a real one.

I began my training for my first half marathon. I always claim to hate running, but this is the next big challenge for me, and I hope it will change my mind set in regards to running.
I've read up and asked friends about training plans. Received mixed tips....Regardless, I'm behind the standard plans but feel confident that I can/will complete the race.

[B]Endurance[/B]

6 miles in 1 hour.
I found that that pace was decent but I think next time out that I'll tone it back some in order to establish a sustainable pace for the 13.1 miles.....

I chose to run later in the day to see how it would feel. Got a good feeling about running in the evening but I'll have to do it again before I decide to switch it from mornings.
Anyway, cruised 3.1 miles in 29:14. My main goal was to just get some road time in and maintain a steady pace. This was Day II of my marathon training. My splits were 9:20,9:35 and 9:22.....
