New Schedule Starts Tomorrow

Saturday, June 08, 2013

I think I may have been going a little too gung ho on my running training. Especially after I realized that the APP I am using only has three days of running a week. Not to mention, my legs have decided they hate me. *I think this may be from the 30 flights of stairs yesterday, more than the running.

Anyway, since my APP changes intensity with my next run, and this is the last day of the week, I thought this would be a great time to change my training schedule.

I found a few awesome tips on About.com that I have started to employ...one of which was my posture. After watching a video about running posture, I realized today that I was making a few mistakes, which I fixed. But, also one of the videos was about a good training schedule...so I think this is how it will go.

Sunday: Long, leisurely walk
Monday: Rest day (this is also my fast day...so exercise is bad that day)
Tuesday: Interval training
Wednesday: Cross training (bike ride or stairs if my legs don't still hate me)
Thursday: Interval training
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: Interval training

Next week's interval training looks scary though. Right now, my intervals are 90 second runs and 2 min walks. Next week will be 90 sec run, 90 sec walk, 3 min run, 3 min walk (repeat).

    My body can handle only 2 or 3 runs a week, max. I rollerblade, walk, bike and elliptical on off days. But adding HIIT (check out Fitness Blender) and interval training has helped my drop my 5k time by more than a minute. And that's during training, not racing. Keep mixing it up and watch for surprising results after a few weeks with the interval training.
