It’s week 3* of my half marathon adventure, and the miles are increasing. The long run is 5 miles this week, which I am ready to do. I’m repeating my goal from last week with strength training. I will do it after my run on Thursday! It seems that variety is working for me, so I”ll also map out a different 3.5 mile run for Tuesday & Thursday.
If you read the rundown from yesterday, then you heard about poor Norman, and his leg/foot. I think I did a number on him as he’s not completely healed, and still a little unsure of himself as he frolics around in the backyard. I feel horrible.
Plan for Week 3:
Monday: Stretch & Strengthen: Plan to do the strength routine from “another mother runner“, then the yoga pose sequences from “My Yoga Life“. I’m hoping if I keep it simple, then I’ll actually do what I planned!
Tuesday: 3.5 mile run: Plan to run 3. 5 miles with Bergen (and hopefully Norman) mid-morning. Will better align the run with nap time.
Wednesday: 2 mile run or cross-training: What else? Total Strength cardio class at the Y.
Thursday: 3.5 mile run: Plan to run 3.5 with early-morning run with B & again, hopefully Norman. Strength routine in the afternoon.
Saturday: 40 minute cross training: We are off to Portland for a quick trip via train, and I expect to do lots of walking around the city as we will be car-less.
Sunday: 5 mile run: 5 mile run! Can’t wait! Will do this after we return from Portland.
Look for a rundown on Sunday.
