while (1.5Mile > 13 min) Run();

I'm training for boot camp thanks to a kick in the face from an old friend of mine.  I have been reading so that I know what is expected of me and since I'm 26 now I guess I'm not at the top of my game like I was when I was 21 and invincible.  Those were the good 'ole days, I mean, who doesn't want to feel invincible?

I've mapped out some routes in my rural neighborhood and have been training a bit:
Sprinting 1/10 mile, walking 1/10, repeat 5x.
Jogging 1 mile.  Cooling down.
Other days, 1.5+ mile runs.

Today I ran 1.5 miles in about 13-14 minutes and I realized that it's the bare minimum.

I have been doing push-ups and sit-ups too:
20 push-ups, 25 sit-ups, 3x.

After reading today I realize it should be timed as well!

Looks like I've got more work ahead.

  1. Yeah. It's tough to start a routine, but once you get into the hang of it you will have motivation to continue.

    Also try to look up some different exercises to throw onto there.. there are plenty of bodyweight exercises you can use to increase results and curb boredom. Good luck.
