I guess I'm not giving up though! I'll never succeed if I don't keep trying. My running partners and I are starting Track Tuesdays this coming Tuesday. On Thursdays, we will do medium-long runs (I'm thinking 8-10 miles). And I have my weekend long runs mapped out all the way to the Hatfield McCoy Marathon in June. And I am really going to try to keep strength training at least twice a week from now on. I really want to be able to run a strong marathon in June, and I know the way to get there is to be more serious about my training schedule than I have been in a long time. Hoping I can stick to it this time! So far, so good.
This week :
M : easy 3 / 7:54 / 72 ft
30 minutes core strength Pilates
T : run w/Mollie 5.3 / 8:24 / 240 ft
W : workout 5x5 @ 30/10, 2 minutes rest between sets
R : AM w/Mollie 9.5 / 8:28 / 374
(2.4 solo jog, 6 hill striders, then 6.2 with Mollie)
Sa : long run w/Ben 12.3 / 7:33 / 614 ft
Su : hike 3 miles
total miles : 30.1
Here's the plan for the upcoming week, let's see how well I stick to it!
M: run 3 easy, 30 minutes TRX
T : 20-30 minutes Yoga or Pilates, speed workout on the track
W : 20-30 minute workout, focus on arms/abs
R : run 8-10 miles
F : day off
weekend : 20 on Saturday or Sunday, other day either off or easy 3-4
Now before I go...here's a lovely finish line photo from last weekend.
