I am working on combing workouts from Bart Yasso’s new book and Brad Hudson’s Run Faster for my new training program for the Providence Rock N’ Roll Half. Until I get it all sorted out on to a calender I’ll just post day by day.
Today: Mile Repeats 7 Miles with 3x1 mile
This is a 1-mile warmup, run 1 mile at your 10-K pace, jog 1/2 mile for recovery. Repeat that cycle 2 more types. Cool down with 1 mile of easy running.
Today will be my first official training run since the 10k. Monday I worked out some soreness with yin yoga and yesterday I kick boxed. With America’s Best Defense closed for the next week for the 4th I am going to have a lot of time to focus on my running.
Trying out these bad boys for the first time (fingers crossed)
Today is also my last day with my trainer Sarah. I feel like I have learned a lot over the past year and have both the knowledge and the motivation to lift on my own. I am no longer afraid of the “man area”! I am assuming we will do some upper body lifting since she knows my intense desire to do a unassisted pull up.
For my last half marathon I used a Runner’s World program and got a PR of about 3-4 minutes this time I am going to work with Brad Hudson’s Run Faster program. I do have the new Bart Yasso Big Book of Half and Marathon Running en route from Amazon so I may switch it up. But for now here is my workout for today:
Easy 8 Mile Run..That’s it! Plain and simple! :)
