oktoberfast is a little challenge put on by patrick (the road) and the clydesdale project. you pick your goal for the month of october and work at it. i am still trying to keep things laid-back, so instead of setting a mileage goal i am aiming to workout for at least 30-minutes everyday of the month. lately if i am unable to run (health-wise) i've been lounging on the couch and that isn't helping my waist-line, so i must quit taking days-off from exercising entirely. anything will count - walking, yoga, weights, abs, as long as it's 30-minutes or more. my other official 'oktoberfast challenge' goal is to lose 5 lbs.
- 30 minutes everyday (5x)
- tempo runs (7:30-7:45) - 2mi and 4mi
- speed work - 4x800; 3x1600
- 12 core workouts (1x)
- long runs - 8mi and 10mi
- 90 miles on the bike
- lift 5 times (1x)
- lose 5 lbs
tuesday evening i attempted to knock the 2-mile tempo off the list, but i fell a little short. it's ok, i have time (for now) to try again.
tuesday (10/5) pm run: 5.05 miles, 45:06 (avg pace 8:56), 65*
tempo miles - 8:08, 7:44
