I find myself constantly tweaking my training plan, but these last two weeks have gone well.

Last week I ran 7.25 and this week I ran 8. This is a drop from the previous few weeks but I increased my run to 30 minutes straight this week which has been challenging. My plan is to do this for another week before I start adding a longer run on the weekend. Next week I may also add a fourth day of running which will help ramp up my mileage totals.

My weight this week is 154.8. My goal is to be 153 by Wednesday. To help me stick to this goal, I’ve made a contract at http://www.stickk.com which will donate $5 to the anti-charity of my choice if I don’t reach my goal.

Last week was the third week of my “pre-training” phase and my blog. I cut back the total mileage but lengthened each of my runs. I ended the week with 9.5 miles total. I found that my schedule of adding 10 minutes to my daily run was starting to be a little aggressive, so I’m cutting back the days and minutes of running.

My goal this week will be three days of running for a total of 6.5 miles. I will add walking, stationary bike, and strength training to this for extra calorie burn and to balance out the stress of the running on my body.

I’m down a pound from last report making me 156. I will need to watch my weekend restaurant meals and those tempting cocktails in order to get past this number. My goal is to be 154 by Saturday.
