As you guys know, I took a running break for the last 5 months or so…that is until last week. The temperature is finally starting to move from hellish hot to hot (gotta love “Fall” in Florida) & I’ve officially started training — I broke out my running shoes! Though I’m still trying to psyche myself into signing up for the Orlando Half Marathon I’ve put together a training plan to get me introduced back into the swing of training. Here’s what my current plan looks like:
The cross training days will be mostly composed of yoga, I find stretching really helps me when I run. I may also turn one of those cross training days into a rest day, depending on how my body reacts to running again, etc. I put together this plan based on my previous experiences training (I’ve ran 4 half marathons, 1 full marathon & countless other races thus far); I think this will work for me. If you’re looking for a training plan yourself, read this post, it’ll point you in the right direction.
I’m not going to lie, last week was hard — my legs felt like led. I know this is temporary though, part of the training process is getting your body warmed up & back to a routine…I’ll get there. Though I still don’t know for sure I will run the half marathon (knee pending) I’ve taken the most important step: I’ve started running again. Wish me luck as I embark on a new running adventure!
Are you training for any races? If so, which ones?
