So the plan goes something like this:
Tuesday: Fartlek or Tempo
Wednesday: Yoga and/or bike
Thursday: 55 minute easy
Sunday: Long run, which ranges between 8 – 14 miles.
I was really hoping for more run days, but apparently you have to work up to those. And, since I’ve been doing, ummm, practically nothing for a week or so – this is what I get. I think she threw in the yoga days just to torture me. I’ll stick to it and hopefully when the plan is updated I’ll get more run days.
So the plan calls for fartleks on Tuesdays. Tuesday is usually bleacher day. But since bleacher day is nowhere on my plan, I stuck to the fartleks. A one-mile warm up, 20 minutes of 2/1 fartleks and a one-mile cool down – nearly four miles in all. Fartlets are not my favorite workout, but it is on the plan. It felt good to have tired legs after the workout.
Also, after dropping off Kenza at school I took Donkey for a 1.25 mile walk and then Rowdy for a .25 mile walk (he has little legs). I’m not including it as part of my workout – just making good use of my public space to let everyone know that those are extra miles.
Rowdy not happy about being covered in Donkey slobber!
