|Tentative training schedule.|
Now that the Freep Half is behind me, and training my husband for his first big race isn’t my main concern, I’m going to try out a 3-day rotation of run, run, lift. I’ll keep the running mostly easy, adding another mile or two to my weekend runs until they’re back in the range of 10-12 miles, and throw some speed back in occasionally. (Well, "speed" right now means "less slow" running, but you know what I mean.) Basic stuff.
For fun, I went back through my training logs to the last time I was consistently running more often than every other day. Twice in the last 13 months, I took out my crazy lab to (try to) tire her out a day after I had done a few miles myself. One other time, I went out with my husband the day after I ran by myself, probably trying to be a good motivational coach. I have to go backward to September 2015 to see more than every-other-day running. In fact, in September I was still running 6 days per week, 6 days in a row, which is what got me injured in the first place.
I’m not a spring chicken anymore, and those days are probably behind me. Let's try the two on, one off routine and see how it goes.
