During last night's run, I was thinking a bit about how while racing is always a thrill, the training to get there is . . . well, a bit less exciting.
These next few weeks, months really, will include a lot of the same: plenty of easy miles, speedwork, light strength training and of course, boot camp class. As the weeks go by, I hope to increase my long runs to 16-18 miles as I build up to my next half marathon. Once it gets nicer out and I don't need to worry about slipping on an icy patch, I'll also add in hill work.
But for now, here's this week's plan:
Afternoon: 7 mile easy run; 30 minutes strength training
Afternoon: 8 mile speed workout
Afternoon: 6 mile easy run; Guts and Butts Class
Afternoon: Boot Camp Class; 2 mile easy run
Afternoon: 4 mile easy run
Morning: 12 mile long run
What are you currently training for?
