My new program

After I chickened out and did the elliptical trainer yesterday, I decided I needed to review my current training plan and perhaps adjust a few things.

Here are the problems I’ve been encountering so far:

  • Running too many days a week (could lead to mental burnout)
  • Saturdays have not been good for long runs due to snow
  • Yoga keeps getting pushed back
  • I want/need to do more strength training
  • Need a true core workout, more than just a set of crunches here or there

So, I took a look at my training page and made some adjustments for next week. (This still won’t be a typical week since I have a race next Saturday)

Week 11 (Feb 7 – 13)

Sunday – Core workout (at home)

Monday – Run 5-6 miles

Tuesday – Weight training

Wednesday – Yoga

Thursday – Run 5 miles

Friday – Weight training

Saturday – Run Snowman Shuffle race (4 miles)

That looks a lot better 🙂

I think I may just have to take it week by week but these adjustments are necessary and hopefully I will still get a good amount of training in and be ready for the mini marathon on April 24th!
