Run The Bluegrass . Well this year they have put out 3 levels of training programs that began on January 1, last year I didn't follow any kind of "training" program and just went on my own of what I thought I should do. However since these training schedules were available I thought I would give one a try.
So how did my first two weeks of training go? HA not the best! The first week was successful and let me feeling very positive about training!!
Jan 1- 5 mile race -Pace was much faster than I thought I could do~ always nice!
Jan 4- 5k Race
Jan 5- 7 mi Long Run
Then along came week 2 and the Polar Vortex! And yep I wimped out of the sub below zero temps and took most of the week off, then I crammed in 3 days of running all in a row! Not a smart thing to do at ALL!
Jan 10- 3.11 mi
Jan 11- 5 mi
Jan 12- 7 mi
So as you can see from what I've done and what the actual training schedule calls for I am not following it exactly I haven't done hill work or tempo runs I'm trying to focus more on getting the mileage in which I haven't been right on with the exact distances either.
Look at this BEAUTY that is and will be waiting for me (and Gerard) MARCH 29, 2014!
When following a "training schedule" do YOU do EXACTLY what it calls for?
Do you think its ok to sway from the schedule and just use it as a base to go by?
