I did my push-ups today. Four sets of 13 push ups and then the last set I did 20. A total of 72. They are feeling better and easier again, but I still don't want to jump into the 100 Push Up Challenge yet. (BTW, there is now also a 200 Sit Up Challenge - sounds like something to pick up later in the year...)
I have been thinking about whether to follow a training program this year. Last year I followed Higdon's Marathon Novice 1 plan leading up to the Frederick Marathon and then I followed a Runner's World plan for a faster 5K leading up to the Kentlands/Lakelands 5K (which I ran a PR of 25:17).
I decided to give Higdon's Marathon Novice 2 plan a shot right now - at least leading up to whichever Spring Half Marathon(s) I decide to run. The plan is four days a week which I can handle right now. The mileage isn't so outrageous that I should be able to fit it into my schedule and not injure myself. I'll likely try to do some speedwork during the mid-week longer runs - just like I did in 2008....why mess with success???
Now I have a plan - that's the easy part. The difficult part will be getting out of bed tomorrow morning and running those 5 miles in the cold (or on the dreadmill at the gym).
