Happy Birthday Mom!...
Love, your little angels.... Steph, Susan, & Me
On the training front...again. I think I have figured out what I would like to do with this training business.
A typical week will look something like this:
Monday: Swim (long)
Tuesday: Run 3-4 miles
Wednesday: Spin/15 min. run-off
Thursday: Run 3-4 miles
Friday: AM Yoga/Turbo Sculpt
Saturday: Swim (short)/Spin BRICK
Sunday: Long Run
Obviously this is bound to change with weekends away and such, so things will just have to get shuffled around a bit.
If all goes as I would like, I will be able to get in a handful of 10-14 mile runs in March and April. For the rest of January and into February, I will slowly get used to the longer runs on the weekends, averaging 5-9 miles only. Some strength training (including turbo sculpting) will be incorporated in there, probably on the shorter run days.
Last year, I did most of my long runs on Saturdays and I really liked that. I was able to get to the gym early Saturday morning before it was busy and didn't have to worry about sticking to a 30 minute sign-up time. Sunday's the gym doesn't open as early, so I might be switching this with my brick workouts later on.
If anything gets cut out of my weekly workout, it will be either my Spin/Run-off session, or the Brick workout. If anything one might just be cut in half, preventing any injury. With this Half Marathon, I still want to keep a good base with my swimming and cycling, but will cut back if I need to.
Alright, there it is. I promise my next post will not be about this training. I just needed to get this figured out for my sanity. Ha!
Have a great weekend, y'all!
Run 3.27 miles, 38:11, 11:40/mile
