Goodmorning everyone – it is Monday once again which means its back to work. I had a great night’s sleep and actually feel good despite my tough run yesterday (it must have been the pancakes).
The past few weeks I have had to rearrange my running schedule quite a bit to accommodate for weekend trips, soccer games and a crazy coaching schedule but this week it is back to business. Over the past 4 weeks of training, I have missed a few runs here and there which normally would send me into an absolute panic but not this time. I had a great base built from the last marathon and continued that training even through my off time. I am confident that if I stick to my training schedule from here on out that I will be more than ready to tackle Chicago in October.
This week my schedule is as follows:
Monday: 4 miles
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 4 miles
Thursday: 5 miles
Friday: Off Day
Saturday: Hilly 12 miles
Now that I am in the next phase of my training, it is time for me to add in strength training 3 times a week. I will complete my lifts on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for the duration of my training program. Tomorrow I will give you a breakdown of the exercises so that you can follow along.
Have a great day and I will see you all tomorrow!
