Week 1 Training Plan: 9/3 - 9/9

Monday, 9/3: Rest Day

Tuesday, 9/4:
Goal = Long Run Day [7.5 mi]
Actual = 7.5 miles in 100 min (13:20 min/mile). Ran 2:00/walked :22. A little faster than the 14 min/mi pace I was looking to hit, but it's hard to run that slow. My legs felt great, like I could have gone a lot longer/faster.

Wednesday, 9/5: Rest Day
Actual = 60 minute walk

Thursday, 9/6:
Goal = Medium Run + Strength Training [4.5 mi + Stage 1/Workout A #1)
Actual = 4.78 mi in 55 min (11:30 min/mi). Ran 2:30/ran slowly :30/Ran 2:00/walked :30). Felt great. Strength training: did Workout A #1 and liked it. It went pretty quickly. Overall it was pretty easy, though I feel a bit shaky right now, which is how I know it worked.

Friday, 9/7: Rest Day
Actual = 45 min. brisk walk

Saturday, 9/8: Goal = Medium Run + Strength Training [5.5 mi + Stage 1/Workout B #1)
Actual = 5.5 in 72 minutes (13:15 min/mi). Ran 2:30/walked :30/ran 2:00/walked :30. Felt pretty awful. Strained a big muscle in my inner thigh doing weight training and it was sore all day yesterday. Thought it would be better today, but it really hurt. Ran anyway on the "play with pain" motto, but it was slow. May end up regretting it.

Sunday, 9/9: Rest Day
Actual = 40 min. walk

    Looks good! You are very smart to stick rest days after strength training. Especially when you are focusing on compound movements. You may not feel horribly sore now but it is coming...woohoo to your new body!! :)
