Let the training begin. It looks like most weeks you are running 4 or 5 days in a row, This could get challenging and there doesn't seem to be any relief for your legs. It may also lead to injuries and burnout. I would try and split things up a bit, I wouldn't run more than 3 or 4 days in a row. I like to take the day off before a long run and I have found cross training really helps.However, having said this, everyone is different and do what works best for you.
I like to take my long run on the weekend. Unfortunately, I also like to go on Jeep trails. Sometimes, I'll need to switch my long run and my day off.Either way, for me, I get a day of rest after the LR or a cross-training day. So that works for me.I don't know much about the Hanson system. More to read up on!
I was thinking along the same lines as d10. Maybe some cross training added in there to give the legs a little break? Listening to your body is key. It knows what is best for you :-)
Thanks ALL for your valuable inputs:)!!!I always think I can run 6 days a week, but I think you all are right, run 3 days, then spin, run 2 days then do yoga. So, I redid the plan, and I am changing the days up:Sunday, Long run, will now be MONDAYMonday, recovery run, will now be TUESDAYTuesday, speed/strength, will now be on WEDNESDAYWednesday, off/spinning class, will now be on THURSDAYThursday, tempo run, will now be on FRIDAYFriday, recovery run, will now be on SATURDAYSaturday, off/yoga, will now be on SUNDAYI checked my gyms schedule and the times they have for the spinning class and yoga class work for me, and I just realized it will open up Sunday so I can spend it with my family:)Charlie, would you mind if I sent you another doc, so you could make it into a .jpeg for me, and I'll upload the 'new' plan? ThanksThanks again everyone for your input. If anyone sees something wrong with my 'new' plan, please feel free to critique/make suggestions. I can use all the help I can get:)Thanks!!
hmm.. I might have a change... just looking at the 'new' schedule, wondering if I should make the recovery run on FRIDAY, after spinning THURSDAY, and the Tempo run on SATURDAY, before my rest/yoga on SUNDAY. Thoughts anyone??
Thanks for the shout out, Joanne! I returned the favor!
It's the first time I've seen tennis on a half-marathon schedule!! Be careful playing tennis as the twisting motion of swinging a racket can be difficult on the knees as well as the ankles!!
