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!
