Knuckles Burning. Did 12Kms long Run

I did my 12Kms yesterday. The first long run in a series of long runs that will culminate into a 26Kms (shudder, shudder) long run two weeks to the marathon. I actually covered 13.5Kms including the warmup and warmdown in 1hr 17 Minutes. My 5K pace was 29Mins and I am glad because I know I have to slash at least 10mins from that. And I think I am good for it. I also tried changing my gait - or posture if you like: I am trying to rum more upright and using my shoulders to sort of dance or swing forward like Catherine Ndereba. In this sort of motion, I try to involve my shoulders in propelling my body - as opposed to leaning forward and placing lots of load on my forelegs. I am trying this because I am suspecting that my running style could have something to do with my regular soreness after workouts. I dont know but I have friends who can run without being sore after the run. Or they are lying.

I decided to follow the One Hundred Pushups program for strength during my rest days and I have already done my day 1 and day 2 since I can do 30 pushups at a go. Its what is making my knuckles burn because I do my pushups on my knuckles. Today I did 12+12+10+10+12=56 pushups with 60seconds rest in between.
It is a six weeks program and its quite interesting because I was almost breaking to sweat by the time I was doing the last 12 pushups.


Tomorrow I will go for my recovery run. Fat will burn. Speed will increase.
Cheers.

Nope. 4th ain't rest. Here is the program for week 1 day 2:
LEVEL 1 --- 12
LEVEL 2 --- 12
LEVEL 3 --- 10
LEVEL 4 --- 10
LEVEL 5 --- max (at least 10)

So, are you also trying 100 pushups? Sounds intriguing.

Hmmm A., Baby steps. This exercise thing is killing me. My legs want to scream, and right now, my push-ups are from the shoulders to the knees. LOL.

I am all for baby steps and push ups from the knee. One day at a time is the way to go. One day at a time.
Like they say, nothing worth doing can be done overnight.
I think its good that you, like me are combining the pushups with running. I am sure that the two combined will accelerate the fat-burning process and push your metabolic rate up.
Keep it up.
