This week went pretty well. I’m struggling with the long run portion of my training plan because it’s difficult to find enough time in my schedule for a run that increases in length every other week. Right now I think I’m going to try to break it into two smaller runs, but it’s probably unlikely that I’m going to be able to get all the miles in. Based on the hours I work, it’s just not feasible. I’m going to do the best I can with that understanding.
I’m also hoping that since I’ve modified the Galloway plan to exclude walking, that it’ll keep my legs strong even though they’ll be tired.
My mood was all over the place this week and I felt like it was reflected in my workouts. I had some cramping issues on Thursday that shorted my run by a little bit, but since I got a decent distance in I don’t think it was a big thing.
I also learned that there’s a decline on some of our treadmills so now I can do hills and valleys. I think my goal for the upcoming week is to add more incline/decline variety as a result. I’ve been doing random hills for my workouts, but adding declines will stress my legs in a different but good way. Also, I want to do some more core work. I’ve been neglecting that with my lifting.
Lastly, I think it might be time to start thinking about getting some new shoes. My Brooks Ghosts are starting to wear through around the toes. I thought I’d snagged it on a bush a while back, but I noticed the other day that they’re both showing the same signs of wear. At least I’m consistent, right?
