New Plan and Glad I don't bet : )
This week starts a new "plan".... I follow plans as well as my best ADHD kid : ) BUT I really need to work on other parts of my body besides my legs! The legs can run but my week core and no flexibility are killing me! I can not touch my toes and am inches away from it. I did P90X Yoga and well it was horrible. I need to stretch for like 8 hours a day to make improvements. So I have made a plan that addresses other areas of my body. I am also recording some of those cheesy Yoga workouts that can come on TV for the days I don't have over an hour to devote toward Tony and his Yoga. Here is the plan...
Sunday – Yoga and Run (5 miles @ 9:00 min pace)
Monday – Speed 5K and AB work
Tuesday- walk/yoga after class; when class is over 5 mile 9:30 run
Wednesday – 5-6 mile speed work/arms OR 8 mile run at 9:00-9:30 min pace
Thursday – Plyometrics 0r P90X cardio or Insanity
Saturday – Long run
I have given myself options on most days but I really want to get in more other stuff than just running but I will need to get in plenty of running because....
Somebody is talking about ME running ANOTHER marathon on May 15h in Cleveland! Who would have such a crazy idea??? Okay it might be me : ) My friend Crystal bet me I would be registered for something by summer. Little did she know it would actually be a week and she should have put some money on it! BUT it is a great way to knock off an close by state and I get to stay with my friend Monica. She is running the half so it would be a good time. I think I am going to make it official tonight. I really want to do another one quick because I feel like I could have done better in Virginia. I think the illness and lack of running for 2 weeks really caught up with me. I had trained so hard and much faster than what my time showed. My "big" runs were all sub 9:30 up until the funeral and illness stuff happened. SO we shall see : )
