This week I didn’t feel too badly. I ran every day and even hit some good paces in there, too. I had a really killer leg workout on Friday with squats, deadlifts, lunges, and leg extensions and curls that left my legs leaden.
I’m trying to find a happy medium somewhere in there. I know weight training and lifting is so important to overall strength, but I also have to get the miles in running and some days it’s hard with the other physical requirements I have for regular work. I’m especially worried about the long runs. Even if I break them into two-a-days it’s going to be difficult to find the time for them. I guess I will just have to do the best I can and work with what I have.
I thought about switching to the Hal Higdon plan, but I think I’m going to stick with Jeff Galloway and just add in some extra mileage so that I’m running every day. I know I can do a full, and I know I can do two in two weekends, so theoretically this should not be impossible. I can do it, I’d just like to also be able to walk around and enjoy my time with my husband, too.
