I like to follow a 18 week program, so I'm going to go with our 30 Day running challenge's Intermediate program as a warmup into the full training cycle which will start in a few weeks.
I missed the mark a little bit since I had a bunch going on, but still good on the whole.
Let's check out week 2...
|Monday: 4 miles @ 11:01 pace. It rained a little on me today, but I'll take it since the temps were so nice. Run was fine...did a little walking during mile 3, but finished strong.|
|Tuesday: 2.4 miles @ 9:40 pace. Planned on doing 3 miles today, but got off to a really fast start for the first mile and decided to push the pace. Ended up having a slower 2nd mile and then called it short.|
|Wednesday: 1 mile @ 8:54 pace. Today on the challenge was only a mile and after the fast start on Tuesday I wanted to go for it. I know this isn't fast to many people, but it's been several years since I've run under a 9 min pace so I was happy.|
|Rest of the week: CAMPING! So I didn't run on Thursday and then spent the weekend camping with my youngest out on Possum Kingdom lake. We had a blast and I got over 20,000 steps on each day so very happy to make that trade off to spend time with her.|
Ok so that's where we are at. This coming week's plan looks like this:
|5 m run||Cross Training||Rest||3 m run||4 m run||3 m run||2 m run|
So I'll check back in with you next Sunday. Of course our regular blog content will still be coming on Tuesday as normal.
Have a great week and let me know in the comments how your training is coming!
So you want to be in the top 0.5%? You want to join that tiny percentage of people who have finished a marathon?
The good news is you can totally do it. All you have to do is follow these seven simple (not necessarily easy) steps:
We're back. I'm back. I know for a lot of you the gyms are closed or will be closed soon. But good news another great benefit of running is you can do it by yourself, you can do it outside and you don't need a lot of gear.
So I know it’s not much notice, but we've got to get moving. A new challenge starts on Monday, so get your head ready and let’s do this.
