Train your Brain

Today for my 43 I did incline push-ups.  (probably not the best choice because I had already done lots of push-ups in my challenge workout but….)

Pretty basic today but push-ups are always good!!!!  

This is the 6th (and final) week of Taylor’s challenge – and it is a good one for sure!!!  I still have 2 more chances to try and lower my time!!!

I decided to run today – my Achilles has been sore for a long time now and I’m trying to make sure that it doesn’t get worse while still training.  Anyway, I ran on my treadmill today – 1.5% incline – 6 miles 35:31.  I did a progression type run – increasing my time every 30 seconds – a fun way to make the time go quickly and push myself at the same time.

Yesterday I read several articles and posts about the benefits of exercise on your brain.  I’ve also read a lot of things about the importance of training your brain.  And, since it is back to school (or close) I thought it would be fun to have some brain challenges today!!!
