Did some work on pushups. I did 18 once. I also did a few sets of planks (counting to 40 – phew that was painful).
Next steps: continue planks (40-count) with pushups on alternate days. Hope to be able to do 18 consistently.
Running: Did a 12 minute run.
Next steps: progression 12-14-16-18 minutes by Jan 6th (2 weeks before the race).
Then next week reach 25 minutes. Final week, crank up the speed (intervals?)
