Week 4 already? This Marathon is creeping up one day at a time. I am blogging my training plan to keep myself accountable and focused.
Monday – 8km easy
Nailed it! Well…..almost. I ran with my workplace run club. Snow has forced us off our usual trail route but we found a nice alternate loopy route which measures 7.6 km. Good enough for me. Bonus.. it has a nice long gradual incline.
Tuesday – Circuit Workout
This “sort of” happened. I had to break it into two segments due to time restraints and the second Half was Half -assed because I was tired. I did have a great core / strength session in morning though
Wednesday – 5km easy
meh, 2.5 km.
Thursday – Rest
Since yesterday’s 5k didn’t happen I did 5.25 km today with a coworker. We accidentally did hills because our usual trail route was icy, and Riverview pavement is hilly.
I added core strength training to today’s schedule.
Friday – Circuit Workout
Didn’t happen as I had to babysit the grandchildren. I ran to their house, taking a 5k detour so at least I got a run in.
Saturday – Rest
I realized today that tomorrow’s Fartleks aren’t going to be easy to fit in, so I did them today. It is f-f-f-freezing outside. ! The nice thing about f-f-f-fartleks is that you warm up quickly. It was a great session.
Sunday – Fartlek
As predicted, today was not a good day for a quality run so I decided to do yesterday’s Rest Day. By that I mean that I ran 5k easy. I planned 2 or 3k, but it was a magical frosty, moonlit evening and I couldn’t resist.
Four weeks complete! I can see a pattern ; Circuit training is not happening as scheduled, but I am adding a lot of unscheduled cross training in the form of yoga and pushups,planks etc almost daily . Also, Life seems to be throwing Curve Balls late in the week and I need to figure out how to deal with that. This is the first time I am keeping a written record of my training progress and it is keeping me accountable.
