I've been running intervals on the treadmill at the gym up to 3 miles. Yesterday I ran 4 miles and today 4.5 miles interspersed with a lot of leg presses, push ups, step ups and abs. I also did some other weight lifting with my legs. This is SO much harder to do than running 4 miles in a row.
I've been running pretty regularly for that past 2 or 3 weeks. Hoorah! Lovin' it.
Did a 7 mile hike 2 weekends ago and a 3 mile jogging/walking hike last weekend.
I'll be hitting a trail this weekend too.
I'm pretty much working out at the gym 4 to 5 days a week. Almost always doing intense cardio, ab work, and alternating every other day between weight lifting with my lower and upper body.
I take whichever day on the weekend that I'm not hiking off completely to let my body rest.
I am having a BLAST pushing myself more and more!
Oh, and I forgot to add the PAINFUL part of my training regimen. One super cold bath per week to acclimate myself to the ridiculously cold water I will be immersed in come July! NOT FUN AT ALL, but NECESSARY!
