Hold on to your hats! I now have a week's worth of training for my next marathon, per John Ellis. I have been anxiously awaiting this; those of you who are familiar with this blog know that I am nothing without a schedule! Here's how my week looks:
Monday: walk 6 miles
Tuesday: run 3 miles
Thursday: run 3 miles
Friday: walk 6 miles
Saturday: walk 3 miles
Sunday: run 6 miles (one minute walk breaks at every mile are recommended)
Yikes! That is quite a lot for me. I am just grateful that walking is a huge part of the plan (thus far). At least I know I can do that without much trouble. Or can I?
Tonight I went out at about 5:30 PM for the 6 mile walk (as Chasen ran on the treadmill in the garage as Isaac watched him). I am back to taking my ipod with me, and that soooooo helps. Why I stopped using it for quite a while is now a mystery to me. With the help of Nik and Dan I got the job done. I must say that I was feeling it after I finished mile 4. I was beginning to get sore everywhere. From walking! Yeesh. It's gonna be a long road to Rocket City! My splits were 16:02, 15:50, 15:50, 16:16, 16:38 and 17:10.
I'd like to formally thank Giselle V for her kind comments. It seems she has a little one just 2 weeks younger than Isaac and is now getting back on the roads. Go Giselle go!
