It is week 5 of my 18 week marathon training plan…I am slacking. And hoping.
Hoping that I can stop slacking!
My vacation was in a place that I love to run:
uphills, downhills, trails. Just fun and really different than what I normally do.
I am trying to run LESS than I would, which is easy since I am feeling little burn-out now that I am home from vacation and not sure what race I am fitting in between now and October.
Are you doing a good race in New England up until the end of August or early September? I would love to know a pretty race course up to 12 miles. See? Not asking too much!
I was good to change up the routine.
Here is the run-plan for the week:
Sunday: 6 miles- done
Monday: 4 miles- done
Thursday: 3 miles- today!
Saturday: 9 miles
So I am up to speed so to speak, and today of course is the 3-miler, so not too rough! The off-days aren’t really off of course. I will be doing PIYO, walking, or other non-knee activities!
The best thing about vacation running is the change of scene from my regular routes, so I may try to mix things up going forward if I can find some new loops. This is an old, but perfect tweet for me today:
