This morning when I got up to work out, I noticed that it started raining again. Meaning the skies must have cleared specifically for the Portland Marathon yesterday. J
Last night I decided that I’m going to do a 10k in December. It’s fitting that I do this since I’ve only run marathons, half marathons, and a 5k. Might as well get a 10k in there somewhere!
I’m going to follow the Hal Higdon 10k intermediate training plan. I figure this will be a good way to keep me on track.
It also means that since I’ll have a workout just about everyday, that I won’t be able to work crazy hours for a while. The reason being that I need to have enough energy to get a workout in. I’m sure my co-workers will be happy to hear this since they tell me I work too much anyway.
Here’s my workout plan for the week:
- Monday: 3 mile run + strength (finished this morning), Zumba
- Tuesday: 3 mile run, yoga
- Wednesday: 35 min tempo run,
- Thursday: 3 mile run + strength, yoga
- Friday: Off (though I may do Zumba)
- Saturday: Cross train (not decided on what it will be yet)
- Sunday: 4 mile run
My workout this morning went really well. I’m still not sure what to go by, my sportband distance or the treadmill distance. This morning I went by the treadmill distance and figured there’s no harm if it is off and I run a bit over in terms of distance. So I may just keep with that. Ultimately I should get to a track somewhere and test my watch; just need to make that happen.
Yesterday late afternoon I went for a run and wore my new compression sleeves. This is the first time I’ve used them and I’ll just say it was interesting. I could really feel the heat difference as opposed to normal. I almost always wear capris when running and never realized how much that lower leg being exposed helped with keeping cool. I’m really not a running shorts person so I’ll have to play around a bit.
So now it’s on to getting ready for work and my plan for work today is to find a day to take off. Why? Because last night I ha a dream that the kids were now just living in my house! Oi!
