Winter in Georgia doesn't last nearly as long as it does in other parts of the US, but it doesn't mean I have to like it. Luckily for me the high for today is supposed to be around 65F, so off to the park I go for some outdoor running! There's a local park that the city maintains with an excellent running trail that I love to take advantage of. It's also got some good sized hills that I can use for speed drills or just getting better at running up hills.
I don't think I'll run a lot today because I'm helping Rex (my blog nickname for the spousal unit) get in shape for his career. He's a cop wanting to become a DEA agent in the future, and there are some very high physical standards he has to meet before even being offered a job. With that in mind, I am going to join him on his workouts when I can and do everything he does. It's always easier to workout with a partner, and since this will be so physically demanding I will give as much support as I can give short of taking the test for him.
Here's what I'd like to aim for in the next year:
20+ pull ups (I can't even do one right now)
100+ sit ups (I can do about 45-50 but I struggle with that)
50+ push ups (I can't quite to a complete push up)
Complete a 120 yard dash around some cones in under 30 seconds
and the really hard part....
Run 2 miles in 16 minutes. Speed has not been my goal when I've been training because I've been working on endurance. I have some time on this one because Rex needs to just be able to run 2 miles first. I am fully confident we can do this, but it will be hard! The pay off? A kick ass career for hubby and a kick ass body for the both of us. Yeah!
