Here is what last week looked like...

These are my time and distance totals for the week:

Only 6 days till the Cowtown Marathon...it is nearly upon me now. This week will be mostly a taper week, with the big day on Sunday. I've been really feeling good in the last several weeks, so the only issue "should" be keeping the week in 'taper mode'. I did somehow pickup a minor allergy issue in the last couple of days, but it doesn't appear to affect my breathing in general...just makes me a bit lethargic, especially towards the end of the day. The energy during my workouts doesn't seem to be affected at all.
The February pushup challenge (400 in the month of February) continues to go well. I started with a set of 20 each day, and I've progressed through 3 sets of 10 with a 45 second recovery to doing 4 sets of 10 with a 45 second recovery. I've met the goal of the challenge for the month at this point, but I'll see how it feels to keep some momentum going on this. I've modified the pushups and pullups this week so I'm doing pushups one day, and pullups the next (not both in one day), and I'm up to 5 sets of 4 pullups with a 45 second recovery on those days. I do plan to stop this on either Tuesday or Wednesday of this week, so I won't be sore in any way from that on marathon day.
I may have missed a day of stretching on my own at home, but I did attend an hour long Yoga class on Tuesday evening, Thursday evening, and Saturday morning (with another one scheduled for Sunday evening). I'm really liking the Yoga classes...I find that they are not only good for stretching and strengthening, but I'm learning quite a bit about the background and other aspects of Yoga from one of the instructors (Bill). I've been the only guy in the class for each of these sessions, but for some reason it doesn't "feel weird", and I just feel like one of the learners (and not the odd man out).
Happy Running Everyone !!!
