I took to the streets this week. This is what my regular trail looks like right now.
Monday – Plan: 5k easy
Ran with a buddy, completed as planned
Tuesday – Plan – Core strength./Yoga
Done, and an evening Group Run 6k / easy pace
Wednesday – Strength Training
My body says Rest. So I did.
Thursday – Tempo 11k
This was only 8k but it felt like 11 ! Extreme wind. We stopped because we were exhausted.
Friday – Rest
Today felt good so I did some strength training ( that I missed on Wednesday, core work AND intervals. My bad.
Saturday – circuit
I need Rest. I shouldn’t plan a hard workout on Saturdays because it is so busy at work and I am usually beat. I declare today a well deserved Day of Rest. It’s a good tradeoff for yesterday’s unplanned workout. I managed an easy 2 mile run.
Sunday – Fartlek
Are you kidding? The streets are crappy, I can barely shuffle let alone Fartlek. Winter is being a Dick, and that inspired this #drawwithyourfeet piece of art. ( yeah, some days I can be very immature)
As always I started the week off strong but then the plan started falling apart by midweek. Since this seems to be happening every week, I think I need to rework my Plan. On a positive note I had some quality workouts this week even though they weren’t exactly as planned. I am still trying to balance Flexibility with Consistency.
