Hey everyone! I hope you had a fantastic Labor Day weekend! Today is a great day for our blogging challenge topic of training schedules because in many places the kids have either already gone back to school, or are going back today – which means it’s time for us to start getting back into OUR routines. Now I don’t know about you, but my brain is full of cobwebs so this topic will force me to think about my routine, and remind me to do it!
My Training Schedule
Monday: 50 min lunch spinning class
Tuesday: 6k lunch run
Wednesday: BodyPump class
Thursday: 50 min lunch spinning class
Friday: 8k lunch run
Saturday: Long run (usually 14-18k)
Sunday: BodyPump class
Now the above schedule LOOKS like I don’t take rest days, but trust me I do. I basically go as I feel – if my body HATES me and feels tired and sluggish then I rest. Some days my work schedule or family commitments make fitting in my workout hard, so I’ll skip it. This means that most weeks I end up taking 2 rest days. My three running days vary in length to go with where ever in my half marathon training plan I’m in – Sometimes my long run is only 10k, and other weeks it could be as long as 19-20k.
