Hi there! I had a few weeks away from the training logs. I took a week off from running to allow my legs some rest and clear up a small IT Band issue. After that week, I started back up slowly, running 4 days a week, all under 40 minutes at a time. I continued to cross train in between. That catches us up to now. I’m in a good place right now because it’s all base training. I haven’t done any workouts since my half marathon DNF. I’m eyeing some spring races beginning in March but like the feeling of just running right now, building fitness and a stronger, more durable body to withstand heavier training in the spring. In addition to twice weekly strength training, I have also been doing daily drills prescribed by my chiro, all of which are helping to keep me healthy.
Monday: 37 minute easy run with James.
Tuesday: 45 minute walk with inclines on the treadmill.
Wednesday: 40 minute run with James.
Thursday: 38 minute run with James and a quick pickup in the middle of the run.
Friday: 40 minutes with 30 minutes around 8:40 pace, which is my steady pace right now.
Saturday: 50 minute WINDY walk around my neighborhood.
Sunday: 53 minute long run with James and Chris on the towpath and some hilly trails.
Total: 3 hours, 28 minutes of running
