This week was a little rough and didn’t quite go as planned but hey that is life. I ended up getting a head cold and had to take a few days off of my plan to recover. Remember, don’t try to make up the miles you miss just move on with your plan. If during a training plan you have to miss several weeks or key runs, that is when you need to reassess your goals and if you will be ready for your upcoming race.
Monday: AM 2 miles PM Lower Body Strength
This run went a little slower than I had planned. I was still pretty sore from my long run on Saturday and I also felt like I was starting to come down with a cold or something.
Avg Pace 12:15
I decided this week instead of doing 3 days of full body strength workouts I am going to switch it up and do 2 upper and 2 lower days.
For my PM workout I did my Legs and Booty Workout and boy did it work those babies!
Tuesday: AM upper body PM 2 miles
To start the day I went with a lunch time upper body workout. I did my 10 Minute Party Dress Arms Workout
I had been feeling a little under the weather the past couple of days but just thought it was allergies so I decided to go for a run after work. I had planned on 3 miles but that wasn’t going to happen on this run.
Distance: 2.20 miles
Avg Pace 11:25
I was feeling pretty sore in my legs when I started that didn’t really let up. Overall I wasn’t feeling too great either so I cut the run short.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Well feeling a little under the weather and attributing it to allergies on Tuesday turned into a head cold on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I therefore listened to my body and took those days off.
Sunday: 2 mile recovery run
Changing things up a bit. I read a great article HERE about taking a rest day before your long run and running the day after. Thought I would give it a try and I might be hooked! I have tweaked my training schedule a little bit for the next few weeks to see how it goes!
Distance: 2.01 miles
avg pace: 10:31/mile
