The Road To 2012 NYC Marathon – Summary of T-50 Week.


  • Completed C25K Week 1, started Week 2.  Not feeling like I’m pushing it yet, from previous exercise but still trying to skip anything and avoid injury.
  • Technical difficulties were had a plenty though with the non-running bits of running:
    • Wed – not realizing the free version of the app wouldn’t run in the background, wound up paused several times on the timer til I figured that out. Added about 4-5 minutes of walking.  (And upgraded to pro for a $1.60 – completely worth it).
    • Wed – managed to send my ipod flying and cracked the screen 😦  Not readable anymore.
    • Wed – sent my phone flying about 90 seconds later.  Thankfully, undamaged.
    • Fri – Managed to pull the emergency stop cord grabbing while my towel.  Kind of messes of the stats for that one.
  • As such, this weeks stats will be from Sunday’s run, which was the only smooth and 100% accurately  recorded one.
  • Fitness program for now until the books arrive – Run x 3 week, 3×12 sets of weights of just about anything I feel like 2-3 times a week.  I am supplementing the running a bit with some elliptical and bike on 2 days, but again trying not to injure myself either.  Arc trainer is out for now.
  • Depending on what I learn from any additional reading, 200 crunches may be back in the picture as a good supplement once running is more full-time the other days of the week.
