I am not really sure I what I was thinking when I put that plan together ha-ha… That would be WAY to hard to maintain. I think when I put it together… I was thinking… When am I going to swim? So I had to include it in there… weirdo.
I revised my training plan a bit and here it is….
Its its basically what the Hal Higdon Training program recommends here and here. I just made two modifications. One I really like my body sculpt class in the morning so I am keeping that on Thursday and Sunday mornings! I decided I can swim some Saturdays instead of my class and some Wednesdays instead of my run if I feel like it.
I am also going to need to be flexible. If the weather calls for a beautiful Saturday and a like -2 degree Sunday I am going to flip my long run to Saturday and do a swim on Sunday instead. I also changed what I would for a run on Thursdays. Doing a 5 mile run after already working out that day seems a bit extreme. When I was training for my 10k I would do a small run after I got home from work and it really fit in well! 🙂
So I hope it works. I would be really nervous only running 10 miles as my longest run before the race… although I am sure it would be fine. If I can run 10 miles then I probably could run 13.2! 🙂 So I decided the plan increasing per mile by week would be best. I am also a little nervous only running over 3 miles one other day of the week. BUT if the increasing the miles each weak becomes harder then I will revisit.
I just need to trust the training! I remember while the 10k training hurt at times my body always felt ready for the next step. 🙂
So so far this is it…. until I change my mind again!
