New Workout Schedule

Monday, August 26, 2013

It's a new week already, but my health is delaying the start of my next training cycle. I am on the last day of the antibiotic, which I read can cause tendon inflammation/rupture - not good when I had intervals scheduled. Sunday I was tired and sore all over, especially my right foot and left calf, after doing too much too soon on Saturday. I may do intervals in a pool today, but I'll probably use the remodel as my workout instead.

My new workout schedule looks like this:

* Monday - Intervals (Hard) AM
* Tuesday - Ski Machine (Easy) AM, Power Circuit/Kettlebells (Hard) PM
* Wednesday - Short Tempo Run (Hard) AM
* Thursday - Trail run (Easy/Moderate) AM, Power Circuit/Kettlebells (Hard) PM
* Friday - Off
* Saturday - Long Run (Moderate/Hard) AM
* Sunday - Hill Repeats (Moderate/Hard) AM, Leg Strength workout (Optional) PM

My previous schedule swapped the morning Mon/Weds and Tues/Thurs workouts, making the days too easy or too hard overall.

Goals for today:

Finish Bathroom Remodel
Rest day or easier workout day
Organize office desk area

Have a great Monday!

    I dont think you should be doing 2 leg workouts in the same day. (Hills ARE legs) can you flop those around somewhere?

    Wow, there is an antibiotic out there that specifically says a side effect is tendon inflammation/rupture? How did you find out about it? Your doctor or the internet? That is CRAZY! Please take it easy like you said - a few days is better than physical therapy for a few months - ugh! : )

    Your workout schedule sounds a-mazing! I may have to incorporate kettleballs as well, seems to be working well for you! : )

    Please take it easy! I like your goals for the day! Perhaps you could add your #1 goal should be to take care of yourself and get well? : )

    Welcome back!

    Renovations -- the way you do them -- are plenty of workout! Then maybe a nice swim to cool off :P
