I’m still winging it since I screwed up my training so bad this past month. But I do have a plan that will hopefully get me to the finish line – expert that I am. (Disclaimer – I am so NOT an expert so don’t listen to me.)
Monday – Spin bike and weights in the morning, pool running and yoga/stretch/foam rolling in the afternoon and evening. My plan is 3 hours of cardio, so if I need to do more I will incline walk on my treadmill.
Tuesday – 7-ish mile run with some intervals and a mini strength routine in the morning, more pool running and yoga/stretch/foam after work. Again I’m aiming for 3 hours of cardio.
Wednesday – Spin for 45 minutes – an hour in the morning, more yoga/stretching in the evening.
Thursday – 5 mile run, yoga/stretch.
Friday – REST
Saturday – 2-3 mile run.
Sunday – Marathon!
My 3 hours of cardio won’t all be as hard as I can go. Some of it will, but most of it will be under my running heart rate. That’s why I want to do so much of it. I hope that it will help endurance-wise.
No rhyme or reason to this schedule, just what I feel like will be the most beneficial. I know I still need to do a couple of really hard days, and then let my body rest and reset and get ready to run forever LOL
Hopefully this gets me to the finish line and in a good time! I do care about the finish time, but most importantly I just want to finish 😀
