And it has been an adventure.
I am in the middle of the Runner's World's "Run Less - Run Faster" program. I am running three days a week. One day is a speed workout. One day is a tempo workout. The last day is the big long run. My body has really taken to the program very well, but wiped out after my tempo and long run days. Those days require a lot of careful planning afterwards. I learned last Sunday that rest is very important after when I went to the Chicago Auto Show afterwards (BIG mistake!!). I am in the 5th week out of the 16 week program.
I also have registered (*gasp*) for the Twin Cities Marathon in October. My game plan this year to focus on just two big races and some little races in between. Thank GOD that I have a 4 week break between training programs. I am going to seriously need it!!
School has an adventure. I have been learning a lot. I am looking forward to my first EVER Spring Break week off from school. Yes, kids, in the years of undergrad and my first graduate degree, I did NOT have a Spring Break or a summer break or a break between semester period. I am surprised that I did not go coo-coo during the previous programs.
Anyways, I really need to seriously blog more. This will be a big help during the course of my training plan.
