After 50 plus years on this planet, you think I would have learned.
For the past few months my training has been unguided. I’ve been wandering around the trails and paths of Orange County without any raison d'etre (pretty fancy French speak there). And yet I expect results. I am just not the type of person who knows how to achieve without a short term goal in my sights. I should know myself better.
If you’re lucky enough to be one of those folks who can achieve without setting those short term goals – all the power to you. If you’re having trouble getting/staying motivated - my advice? Know thyself.
With that in mind, I completed week one of my “HM training plan from scratch”. I had to juggle things around toward the end of the week, but I got all of the runs and my erg time in. This week is a repeat of last:
- Monday: Rest
- Tuesday: 3 miles easy
- Wednesday: 2 miles easy
- Thursday: 3 miles easy
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: 4 miles
- Sunday: 30 minute erg
- Total: 12 miles plus 30 minutes rowing
I may actually run 50 miles this month….
By the way – anyone know of a good 5K the weekend of May 8th and a 10K the weekend of May 29th here in LA/SD/OC/IE?
