Week 6 - Monday

Onward and Upward! Put in 2 separate runs yesterday. My usual 5.1km trail run at lunch, then a super easy 6.1km road run at night with the neighbours I'm training. Then a soak in the hot tub as a reward!

Weekend update:

Trail ran with some friends early Saturday morning and ran an easy road run last night. I was supposed to go further (half-marathon) Sunday night but the person I ran with on Sunday isn't ready for that type of distance and it was already getting late by the time we finished. Soon though, soon.

I was supposed to do a bodyweight workout as well but my schedule made it difficult and it fell off the radar completely.

Challenge Summary

Well, in typical fashion I started out strong and faltered somewhat at the end of the 6 weeks. I've shown my progress in the chart below, to give grades I averaged the letter grade given per week, then used the total number of workouts as a modifier if needed (i.e. - my running was A/B until I factored in the extra runs I did in weeks 4 & 6).

Discussion:

4 runs or rides a week -This goal went pretty well, it was certainly easier to pursue than others but I've found that without a training plan of some sort my runs fall off the table pretty easily. TI was included in my challenge out of necessity rather than to "push the envelope".

2 workouts a week - Now this was a "push the envelope" element for the 6 weeks. Previously, I'd do a bodyweight workout here and there, but nothing much consistently. Also, I wasn't doing much weight work or heavier lifting which I knew I should be trying. Things were great for the first 2 weeks but, fell off after that. The upside is I'm (slowly) developing a habit of doing a workout once a week now, I find I can fit it into my schedule with little hassle and still get the benefits of the added work. Now it's time to ingrain that second workout as well.

Warmup/Cool Down - This one was frustrating mainly because I have run with so many other people over the past month. With trying to fit runs into other people's schedules it was difficult to keep these in mind. I definitely felt the benefit of them, especially in my hamstrings/lower back

Clearing credit card debt - Completed! I managed to scrape together enough cash to pay off my CC just after week #3. You'll notice that there's a B in Week #6, this is because since that time I've made some additional purchases/payments (car repairs). The card isn't at zero anymore, but it's very low and manageable now which removes the unneeded stress that comes with major debt.
