As many of you may know by now, Bill has challenged yours truely(RJ) to a 5k run on April 25th @ Little Rock Catholic High School. This will be the official blog for all the training and news that happens between RJ and Bill.
I never realized how hard it would be to train for a 3 mile event when you haven't ran any type of long distance in a couple of years. I started the training 2 weeks ago at a weight of 225lbs and I can proudly say that as of today (2/11/09), I have come down to 215lbs!! The actual running is quite motivating because of the challenge of beating the almighty BIll Vickery. I ran 3 miles today in 27min and hope to have my time cut down to under 24 minutes by race day. I'll keep you updated each to let you know how everything is coming along!
Bill has yet to disclose his actual training schedule or what he is doing, but he gave a small amount of information on the Show With No Name this morning and will give an update on Sunday about his progress!
