On to the good news: We ran a hilly 10 miler on Saturday and it felt good. We even pushed the last 1/2 mile and that's where I'm usually running low on push. We have a 16 miler planned for this Saturday. I hope it goes as well. My speed workouts each week are really pushing me. And I am seeing some progress in that stinkin kickboxing video. I'm able to do a little more and last a little bit longer. I still can't do the whole video without stopping. But someday I might be able to. I mixed my workouts around last week and think I've found a good combination that allows my body to heal and not be so sore for those critical runs. Here's the line up:
Monday: kickmax video 75 minutes includes punching and kicking combos, plyometrics, and leg conditioning
Tuesday: easy run 3-5 miles
Wednesday: Jillian video 50 minutes easy run 2-3 miles
Thursday: speed workout either Yasso 800's or mile repeats starting at 3 for Yasso's and working up to 10 and miles start at 2 and work up to 4 repeats.
Friday: spinning class 60 minutes
Saturday: long run 10-20 miles
I'm going to try combining Wed and Thurs this week because of a scheduling conflict. I hope that works out.
Oh, and we've got a team put together for the Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay this year! My favorite race of all time. Our team name: Lips, Hips, and Asphalt. We're working on getting our leg assignments and then I'll develop a training plan for that! Yeah for Ragnar! I can't wait!
