Today I am excited to be linking up with Amanda for her Runner's Tell All link up!
You know I love talking all things running so this is perfect!
This week's topic is training routines.
I would love to tell you that I have a very detail, specific training plan for my next race.
But I don't.
I do have a loose plan and goals for each week, if that counts.
And I do have a race on the horizon though so that's a start. Though I'm not spilling the beans about which one just yet.
I really prefer for my long runs to be on Saturdays. That way I can run with my group and it's so nice to run with other people and take different routes.
Schedule wise, some weeks are WAY better than others.
This summer has been NUTS for us so that plan gets a bit shifted.
Ideally this is how I like my week to look:
Monday : Run 4-6 miles (sometimes more if I need to get my long run in for the week then)
Tuesday : Speed/track work out with my running group. Usually 3-4 miles total
Wednesday : Run 1 mile to and from boot camp
Thursday : Lift/weight training
Friday : Typically my off day if we are in town
Saturday : Long run with my running group. 5-10 miles depending on how close to a race I am.
Sunday : Rest day
And that all equals to a lot of lacing up and a loosely based training plan.
As of today, I'm at 367 miles for the year and thinking I can meet my goal of 500 if I keep this up!
