So…this weeks plan was pretty basic stuff, especially with the weather taking a turn for the frigid. I didn’t have any crazy workouts. It was essentially an extension of foundation miles. For the Sunday to Saturday week, my plan was:
The “1” is because I’m streaking, it’s technically my cross-training day. The “2”s are my quasi-rest days. I was hoping my “4”s would be workout days but I have this nagging fear of snapping a tendon in the cold weather. So this week, Friday was somehow warm (a whopping 35), so I was able to make it into a tempo run.
Blah blah, boring I know. But here’s the real issue: how will I get speedwork in during these cold months? I feel like I will have to play it by ear. Luckily I will always be incorporating hills by the nature of where I live. Or, maybe my mileage will be greater to accommodate really good warm ups. The cool thing about this experiment is that I get to learn as I go. My end goal is completion, any finish is a PR/PB, and I just need to live to run another day.
Next weeks goal, Again Sunday to Saturday, will be 1-4-5-2-4-2-10.
Feel free to streak along with me and give me any pointers!
