I honestly don't know where this week has gone! Work has been crazy, especially since I am ONE week away from vacation. This is better late than never....my review of last week. :-)
Tuesday: SJ class and spin class after work
Wednesday: Hill repeats on the treadmill. I decided to do them on my treadmill to ease the downhill running on me since my knee was still sore.
WU: 2 miles
10 * 1:00 minute hill repeats with 1:00 min recovery. Total hill mileage: 2.59 miles
CD: 1.41 miles
Thursday: An easy 3 miles before SJ class. After work I ran another easy 2 miles
Friday: An easy 10 miler
Sunday: 7 mile run and then a 5 mile tempo for the Hangover Handicap run in CDA, Idaho. 23rd OA out of 575 participants, 3rd place female. Time: 34 minutes, 6:47/mile pace. You can catch my review of the Hangover Handicap HERE.
Total Weekly Mileage: 32
I bought several running books with a B & N giftcard that I got for Christmas. After some reading and pondering I have decided that I am going to stick to the "Run Less, Run Faster" concept. FLAB got me through CIM utilizing this plan and I think that it really worked for me. I am intrigued by how much mileage I can run during the week, but I also don't want to over train or get injured. I will always have a semi bad left knee so I tend to be more cautious when it comes to my mileage.
Questions for you:
Has anyone else had success with the "Run Less, Run Faster" training plan?
