Here's an overview of what last week looked like:
Tuesday: 40 minute Run (Used the indoor track at the YMCA)
Wednesday: Cross-Training (30 Minutes on the Elliptical)
Thursday: 40 minute run with strides (@the YMCA)
Friday: 40 minute recovery run (@the YMCA)
Saturday: Cross-Training (30 Minutes on the Elliptical)
Sunday: 5 Mile Endurance Run (Outside in 15 degree Iowa temps!)
(ps- I am using Marathoning for Mortals as my guide- no I am not doing the Run/Walk plan... even though I should... what can I say... ambition killed the cat)
Estimated Mileage for the Week: 17 (I say estimated because the plan I am following has me base three training runs on minutes instead of miles.)
Aches: Knees are sore, as expected. Nothing a little Bio-Freeze and ice can't soothe.
Purchases: I bought a pair of Saucony Amp Pro2 Compression Socks.
Not only are they a dead sexy accessory... my little leggies did feel nicely swaddled in them after my long run Sunday.
- Keep on keepin' on. Week Two only adds one more mile on Sunday- so I should survive okay. Focusing on form and I need to get one day of weight lifting in... even though I hate it.
