In addition to doing body weight exercise I also participate in various endurance activities including running and multi-sport events like triathlons. My next targeted event is the Hooter’s Half Marathon in early March. I ran this last year and posted a less than fantastic time of 2:11:28. I was conservative running the race since I had never run that distance before, I wanted to make sure I didn’t run out of gas.
This year I have set an internal goal of breaking the two hour mark which would be a major improvement. Endurance training normally takes a back seat to my body weight work. To make that goal I am going to have to bump running higher up in the priority list. Lately I have been only running once a week which isn’t enough to make much progress.
