Week 2 Training Plan: 9/10-9/16
Monday, 9/10: Short Run + ST [35 min run + Stage 1/Workout A #2]
Actual: Ran 3.1 in 31:30 on the treadmill and completed ST workout in 25 minutes. Still adjusting what the right baseline level of weights is for each exercise. Felt GREAT after my run and overall not as tired & not as much of the "heavy limbs" effect after the ST.
Tuesday, 9/11: Rest Day
Actual: .75 mile slow jog with my kids' running club.
Wednesday, 9/12: Long Run [8 mi]
Actual: Ran 8.97 in 118 minutes [13:09 min/mile pace], using a 2:00/:25 run/walk ratio. Shooting for a slow pace of 13:30 but went a bit faster than that. Felt GREAT and could have gone longer (as it was I accidentally went farther than I meant to).
Thursday, 9/13: Rest Day
Friday, 9/14: Medium Run + ST [5.5 mi + Stage 1/Workout B #2]
Actual: Ran 4.97 miles in 52 minutes [10:27 mile pace] using 4:00/:22 run/walk ratio. Felt GREAT! Weight workout doesn't feel as challenging as it should. Still figuring out which bars/equipment to use at the gym.
Saturday, 9/15: Rest Day
Sunday, 9/16: Medium Run + ST [4.5 mi + Stage 1/Workout A #3]
Actual: Ran 6.28 in 66 minutes [10:30 mile pace) using 4:00/:15 run/walk ratio. Felt like I was flying--such a fun run. I even outran my dog, who had to be cajoled into keeping up with me at the end. ST is fewer reps now and more weight. Feels good to be upping the effort.
