So according to plans I could
- lift twice, 3.5 mi, 2 mi, 3.5 mi, 5 mi, and cross train
- lift twice, 3.5 mi 3 mi, 3 mi, 35 min tempo run, and 7 mi
- 3 mi, 3 mi, 4 mi, and 7 mi
- 4 mi, 4 mi, 3 mi, 4 mi (on the most challenging plan but week 4 was an Easy week between 2 hard weeks)
Here's what I did.
This week I have done 4 mi, 3.75 mi, 7 mile , and 3 miles. Plus 4 videos. See details below.
Monday: I ran 4.03 miles with Gina. We ran fast for pushing strollers and we were talking the entire time. Our pace was 10:00 exactly.
Tuesday: I woke up so fatigued I bailed on my run. I did the Focus T25 Speed 1.0 video.
Thursday: I ran 7.07 miles with Beth. We took turns pushing the double BOB each mile then split up the last mile. Our pace was an amazing 9:06. Then after I was home and hour I went out on a run with the neighbors Diana and Kathryn and with Divya. I ran 3.03 with them. We ran slower than normal since Divya isn't used to running but I didn't mind at all since I already ran a hard 7 and was pretty fatigued.
Friday: Rest day but I cleaned hardcore for 2 hours straight. That was a workout. I woke up so fatigued.
Saturday: Rest day again on purpose because I woke up fatigued.
Sunday: Focus T25 Ab Intervals
Total Miles: 17.91
Total everything else: 4 Focus T25 workout videos, walk 1 time (at least)
Total suggested by training plans: 13, 17, 19.5 or 15.
Not bad for 3 rest days. I'm actually proud of it. My mentality is very different than last time I was on week 4 of a training plan. I wanted workout buddies and now I have so many it's great! I have been running so much and just this week added Focus T25 to the mix so I could still workout but run less but I'm not sure I will be decreasing my mileage either.
