So I decided to shake things up a bit this week and I told my coach that I no longer wanted to do a traditional training plan. Having a plan and specific days to run was stressing me out and I wanted to return to a place where I was just doing strength training with her and I’d figure out the running on my own.
Maybe that’s a bad idea, maybe not but it’s what I need right now as I bring myself back to run fitness & how I need to get myself out the door.
So, that being said, what did I do last week?
Monday – Strength Training, 10 min Peloton Core workout & 25 minutes on the bike.
Tuesday – 20 minutes on the bike, 10 min Peloton Core, 10 min stretching
Wednesday – Strength Training, 20 minutes on the bike
Thursday – 3.25 miles on the tread + pre & post run stretching
Friday – Strength Training, 10 min core, 20 min Recovery Ride
Saturday – 6 miles at Lake Murray
Sunday – 90 minutes on the bike including my 500th ride!! and a 15 min ride PR. Stretching
Last week was really ride heavy vs run heavy but that’s ok. It’s what I needed. My desire to run is slowly coming back and I’m honoring that.
My hydration game is on point, I drank over 100 oz of water every day this week. I am feeling good & am taking it day by day.
