Today starts my new training cycle. That must mean that my "Recovery Week" is over. I wrapped the week up yesterday with another slow run - 4 recovery miles on the Back Bay. It was just about all I could do to drag myself out of the house in the late afternoon. I had six miles on the plan, but threw in the towel at the two mile point and turned tail. I ended up the week with 28 miles total.
This week I start something different. I start a slow (10 week) base building plan that will get me close to 50 miles a week. This week I'll actually get 3 rest days! Wow - what am I going to do with my spare time? Here's the plan for this week:
Monday: Rest day.
Tuesday: 7 miles general aerobic (GA). 10 X 100 strides thrown in for good measure.
Wednesday: Rest day. Perhaps I'll get on the erg machine and row a little. Hit the gym for stretching and core work.
Thursday: 8 miles GA
Friday: Rest day.
Saturday: 11 mile long run.
Sunday: 4 miles recovery
Total: 30 miles
Since I won't have anything running wise to write about tomorrow, I'll deliver the third part of my "Programming a Garmin" series then. Sorry to leave you hanging!
