Week Two Training plan

on October 7, 2012

Just wanted to pop in and give you week two’s training schedule:


Week Two Running Schedule:

Monday:    Rest with some stretching

Tuesday:    3 miles

Wednesday:    Rest with some stretching

Thursday:    3 mile speed session.  10 minute warm-up followed up by 3 sets of two minute speed/uptempo run and then three minutes jog recovery.

Friday:    2 miles easy pace

Saturday:    Rest with some stretching

Sunday:    7 miles at an easy pace




6 miles.  I didn’t get up in time this morning to do my run before church.  I went to bed Saturday night at 9:30 and didn’t get up today until 7:00.  I am not sure, but I guess I needed some sleep.  After my run today I still felt like I needed sleep, so I took a nap and got up feeling icky.  Don’t ya hate getting up from a nap and feel like you built a house, ran a marathon, toured the world and then ate a ton of sugar??  No, just me??  🙂


Let’s break my run down shall we:


Mile One:    9.33

Mile two:    9.41

Mile three:    10.07  (had to stop to remove pull-over)

Mile four:    9.47

Mile five:    9.48

Mile six:    9.53


Total time:    58.53

Average pace:    9.47


I felt great during each mile, but mile five was the hardest to get through.  I am not sure why, but I felt really tired and doubt of finishing started to creep in.  Every ache that I was feeling became that much more noticeable.  I quickly distinguished as to whether or not it was an actual pain or just a tired ache and moved on.


Have a great night!
