This first week was pretty easy, with lower miles than I had even been doing prior to the official kick-off on Tuesday. But I didn’t question it, or try to “go the extra mile,” or whatever. I want to follow my coach’s suggested mileage to the number. I’m sure he wants to ease everyone into things… especially with some of the more difficult cross-training elements that are integrated into the regimen. I’m guessing these first few weeks are designed to help us acclimate to the fun that lies ahead…
So here’s what Week #1 looked like. (I’ll start it from Tuesday this week only…):
Tuesday – 10-4-11: Workout #1 – nice warm-up with training group, ran 2 miles, did some calisthenics and stretching after, followed by 5-minutes of continues ab work. Workout # 2 – weights at the gym
Wednesday – 10-5-11: warm-up at the gym, ran 2 miles, did basic cool-down at the gym.
Thursday – 10-6-11: Workout #1 – Yoga session at Fleet Feet. (The hardest workout of the week! Definitely not in great “Yoga shape” at the moment…) Workout #2 – weights at the gym.
Friday – 10-7-11: Rest day.
Saturday – 10-8-11: Warm-up with training group, ran 3 miles (at a faster-than-normal pace), did some stretching and calisthenics afterward.
First week down. Will savor and enjoy these easier, low-mileage runs while I can!
