So I finally did it on Monday, I signed up for the Statesman Capital 10K. Time to get serious! Here's my training plan for the week:
Tuesday: Upper Body Workout
Wednesday: Run 2.5 miles
Thursday: Body Pump
Friday: Early AM run before work, 2 miles
Saturday: Outdoor run, 5k
Apparently I already blew my rest days on Sunday and Monday. Oh well, the runs are short, recovery will be easy, already restarted my glucosamine and flaxseed oil suppliments. The key I find is very slowly working up my milage, otherwise my muscles and ligaments start to give me problems, setting back my training.
I'm going to try and do 2 treadmill runs a week and one trail run on the weekend, keep up with my strength training on the 2 other days of the week allowing for one day of yoga and one day of total rest. We'll see how this goes...
