Week 1 5K Training Recap

Week 1 is in the books.  Today starts week 2, although Sunday’s are a rest day so the first run will be tomorrow.  Here’s a look at the numbers.  So far encouraging.

Beginning Weight – 308 lbs
Running – 1.5 miles (X 3) – 4.5 miles total
Cycling (Cross training) – 9.54 miles
Total milage – 14.04 miles
Ending Weight – 304 lbs – 4 pounds lost.

This week the milage increases slightly.  Plus I may through in some light walking or more cross training on the rest days.

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
