Day 1, I alternated a 1/2 mile run with 50 pushups, 3x. At the end, I added an extended run so that my workout lasted 30 minutes. I did this workout again today. I try to do at least 1/2 of each of the pushup sets on my toes, and the other in the girly position :). By the end of each set of 50, the arms are getting wobbly, but it feels good!
Day 2, I alternated a 1/4 mile run with 50 squats, 4x. I liked this one because I could do the squats right on the treadmill. But I am thinking about upping the run to 1/2 mile and only doing 3 sets. I need to focus tomorrow on squeezing that butt while doing the squat. I don't think I did my best effort last week.

Day 4, alternating 1/4 mile with 50 situps, 3x. I changed this right away to crunches. I am bad with situps and end up pulling on my neck - not good. On the second set of them, I did alternating oblique crunches, then regular on the final set. I think that I might up the mileage on this set too. 1/4 mile just doesn't seem enough. However, that day, I didn't add a run to the end. Instead, I did a 5 mile run in the evening. That was AWESOME - farthest distance ever. I think I will do this on nights when my husband has business. Basically, I won't add a run to the end of whichever set, but do a distance run in the evening. Something to look forward to. And yes, I have a sickness. :P
Day 5 & 6 - I ended up resting for various reasons. I totally intended to do one or the other, but it just didn't happen.
Day 7 - 5K - ended up with my personal record on an outdoor run, 30 minutes and 30 seconds. Woot!!
