So far two weeks of work out have gone relatively well. My knee seems to be holding up well. The issue now is one of fitness instead of pain. I went out for a short three miles on Saturday. Not because of time, but because by the time three miles was done I was dust! How embarrassing! Oh well. It’s good to know that I can still gasp and wheeze with the best of ‘em!
So this week I’m going to start ramping up a bit. Instead of erging (rowing) more than running, I will run more than row:
- Monday: Scheduled rest day
- Tuesday: Run 4 easy miles.
- Wednesday: Erg somewhere around 4 miles
- Thursday: Run 4 easy miles
- Friday: Scheduled rest day
- Saturday: Run 5 easy miles
- Sunday: Erg somewhere around 3 miles
- Total: 20 miles
From this point forward, I will be increasing about 10% per week until I get a reasonable volume (35-40 miles per week) back under my belt.
And you know why I do this? Check out this video from one of my blogging friends – Lauren – from On the Run. She ran the Saddleback Mountain Marathon this weekend:
Have a great week! I’ll be catching up on your blogs over the next couple days…
