So Week One of my running plan wasn’t the best success, I made it 4/7 days (and two of those were rest days), but I’m happy to say last week was more of a success. Although, I’m starting to think that sticking to a pre-made plan for people who don’t work at 5am or 6am every morning isn’t necessarily for me. If I fail miserably at my 5km though its not the end of the world, I do this for fun and for me, not for a job or work!
Week Two’s recap is as follows:
Sunday’s workout: Strength
Sunday’s actual workout: Strength! I made it outside and did a whole bunch of different moves, all of which were documented on last Monday’s blog here
Monday: speed workout
Monday’s actual: Cross-train. I switched Monday and Tuesday because my legs were SO sore from my strength workout that running felt out of the question. So I did aerobic biking for 45 minutes.
Tuesday actual: nothing. I was pooped.
Wednesday: rest day
Wednesday actual: I am acing these rest days!
Thursday: tempo workout
Thursday actual: Rest day. I switched this day with Friday because due to a sudden death of a close friend’s father I was more focused on being there for my friend and making it to the visitation and funeral.
Friday: Rest Day
Friday Actual: Tempo workout! YES, I actually ran. It felt great, and I was successful. It was a 5km tempo workout (3mi) and I made it all the way through. Of course it took me a while but I think that was to be expected seeing as it requires long periods of walking throughout.
Saturday: Distance Run
Friday Actual: Nothing. I was kind of disappointed but I am still proud I worked out three times, and aced my two rest days. So I got 5/7 days this week. At least it was more than last week!
