I see wheezing in my future: Training update #1

My apologies for the blog-silence this week. I had to jump on a plane back to Australia for family reasons, which has thrown everything off. I’d like to think I’m going to do some half-marathon training while I am here, but seeing as I am in the early throes of jet-lag hell, I don’t know how that’s going to go.

But I did manage to do a decent amount of activity the week before last, so I’ll just pretend for the moment that I’m (kind of, sort of, who am I kidding) on track for the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half. I’ll post about last weekend’s 5K tomorrow. I promise.

Tackle box training update (June 4-11):

Monday: Power yoga Two-hour ballet class.
Tuesday:
Tempo Run: 1 mile warm up/ 2 miles tempo/ 1 mile cool down
Nothing. Oh wait, I guess the technical term is “rest.”
Wednesday
: Rest or flow yoga Nothing. So tired from yesterday’s rest that I needed more.
Thursday:
Easy run 2.5 miles Strength and stride class at the YMCA. Nothing easy about it.
Friday:
Rest.
Saturday:
Long run 5 miles Rest.
Sunday:Β 
Yin yoga or optional run Halfway 5K in Canton, MA (great fun), plus 6 x 60-second hill intervals (torture).
Monday: Tempo Run: 1 mile warm up/ 2 miles tempo/ 1 mile cool down 2.5-mile run plus 2-mile jog/walk.

As you can see, the schedule has already been tossed out the window. But my goal is to focus on the cumulative effort. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

  1. cumulative rocks!!! i hope you are doing ok given your unexpected travels. take care of yourself and your family.

    • Thanks!! Unexpected travels are tough, but now that I am over the rocky part, being home is great. Looking forward to squeezing in some running if I can. πŸ™‚

      • hang tough..run (early??–avoid the heat). i too am a very sweaty red face runner and excel in the rain–i do after all live in Vancouver.. good luck in all the ways it applies πŸ™‚

  2. Hope everything is ok, don’t worry too much about the schedule going awry this week – I think the biggest test is how we cope with getting back on track after an unplanned break.

  3. SOMETHING is always better than NOTHING! You’re getting out there and that’s important! Just shy away from eating a packet of Tim Tams every day and I think you’ll be all right!
