I hit all of my objectives this week, but it wasn’t pretty.
I started a new job last week, and I’m still getting used to my new schedule. Even better, my current schedule is not the same as what my regular work schedule will be as they’ve got me going through some training right now. So, I’m making the best of my current schedule, and then will have to adjust again as I ease into a regular work schedule.
One of my biggest challenges right now is that the runs are all more than an hour in length. They take up a big chunk of time. In the evening, I’m already spent from the day at work, and it shows in my times. But, if I want to run in the morning, I’m going to have to get up a half hour to an hour earlier than I currently do to get the distance in before leaving for work.
The good news is I’m going into week eleven of a twelve week plan. After next week, I’ll be resetting the plan, and getting back to running the short distances again for awhile as I start the 12 week cycle all over again. So I just have to get through the next two weeks.
WEEK 10 RESULTS
Sun: 10k Race- COMPLETE. This was a really good 10k, even better than the 5k from just a couple weeks earlier.
Tue: 5 mile run- COMPLETE. Ugh, this was not a good run. I’ve seen snails do a faster pace.
Wed: 3 mile run or cross-training- COMPLETE. I did box jumps, Kettle Ball Swings, Ring Rows, and Push Ups
Thu: 5 mile run- COMPLETE. Not a bad run, and much better than Tuesday.
Fri: Rest or easy run- COMPLETE. I rested.
Sat: 60 minutes of cross training- COMPLETE. I did kettleball clean and press.
AND HERE ARE MY OBJECTIVES FOR WEEK 11-
Sun: 9 mile run
Tue: 5 mile run
Wed: 3 mile run or cross-training
Thu: 5 mile run
Fri: Rest or easy run
Sat: 60 minutes of cross training
There’s plenty of time to train, and whether you’re an experienced runner or a beginner, I’d love to see you come do this race with me!
