So proud of me last week! I was hoping to do better than what I had planned for, but considering that I DID complete my scheduled miles I should be happy. Little pat in the back for me! I already posted about my 3 weekday runs, all completed while on vacation, good girl! That was Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday: 3 miles each day. Saturday was my long run! First time meeting my running group at 6 am, yawn! It was so hot and humid, but I completed my scheduled 10 miles. It actually started pouring right at the end, which was refreshing!
I know it’s quite a slow pace, but I did push! My goal was not to let me hit the 15 minute mile and I did it! Can’t wait to get faster though. So I really need to keep up with my training and hopefully it will happen. I also have this theory that if I drop 20 pounds I will drop 2 minutes as well. One minute per 10 pounds, makes sense right? So I need to start eating a little healthier, because summer time is ice cream time and I do love me some ice cream. And I’m not talking a little indulgence once in a while (which is not a bad thing) I’m more the girl that grabs a pint and a spoon daily, don’t judge me!
Was really hoping to add a fourth day to my training schedule, but I did not wake up early today. So this week is planned as follows:
Monday:Rest, Tuesday:4miles, Wednesday:4miles, Thursday:4miles, Friday:Rest, Saturday:12miles, Sunday:Rest
Four miles before work are going to be hard to accomplish, but I will give it a try. Also wondering if I can add a short run on Sunday. I’ve been reading so many training plans, but I still can’t figure out if it is more important to Rest before or after the Long Run. It seems like both are important? With my schedule it is best to make Friday my Rest Day, right before the Long Run, but should/could I add an easy run on Sunday?
