I am happy to report that I am back to training for the marathon after giving my knee a little rest. I did dial down the MPH and I am working back up to where I was. I am getting the miles in, though, so that is great.
I decided I would do a quick post here once a week with my marathon training schedule. I thought it would be another way to keep me accountable. It also lets you see what mileage you should be doing to build up to a marathon. I am doing the beginning walkers' version - this isn't 20 miles of hardcore running a day, so don't worry. I will be doing that length one day later in training, though.
Coming up this week:
Monday - a day of rest on the schedule! I made a goal at Y-Be-Fit that I would do at least one strength training workout this week. It would probably be easiest to fit it in this day. We'll see.
Tuesday - 3 miles, just a bit faster than normal.
Wednesday - 2 miles
Thursday - 4 miles, a bit faster than normal.
Friday - Cross training or rest. Maybe I'll go swimming at the gym this week, or do bike.
Saturday - Long day. Another round of 5 miles this week.
Sunday - Recovery of easy walking or crosstraining. There's a nice park nearby with a duck pond. Perhaps I'll go stroll around there for a while.
Do you have a weekly exercise schedule? What do you like to do?
