Monday: Monday’s workout + 30 minute walk
Wednesday: 3 mile run
Thursday: Body Toning class (1 hour)
Saturday: 6 mile run
This week was better, running wise. I’ve decided to change my plan entirely, so I’m not even going to talk much about the old plan anymore. I’ve even changed my training days — I will now be running on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday instead of Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. It’ll fit better with my schedule — plus, I like to rest on Sundays . I’ve also decided to add strength training back into my routine. I was holding off on it because I thought it’d make me more sore, but in the long run, I think it’ll be worth it. Thursday’s class was tough, but after a day of recovery, I was still able to get through Saturday’s run without much pain.
As far as my shin splints go, they are not nearly as bad as they were a few weeks ago. Using the Galloway style of training is helping tremendously, and I’m not allowing myself to overdo it (it took me 1 hour and 10 minutes to complete 6 miles — but at least I finished, right?).
I’m excited to see where the next seven weeks take me. The race will be here before I know it!
