New Training Plan

So this week marks a big training week. I am officially done with the ITB Rehab training and moving onto a new training plan. I have never used this feature before, but I thought I would give it a shot since it is only for a 12k. The elevation chart isn't very favorable, but it is what it is. I often wonder what I could do on a stretch of flat road.....Someday. It will be fun training for a deadline regardless. I have been super busy now that I have a husband home so I have not had much time to do my workouts, but I have done all my runs. Just the cross training that is fallen by the wayside. This is on the running agenda for the week: Monday: 4 miles @ 10:56* Tuesday: push-ups Wednesday: Swim, Tempo 5 mi - 3 @9:20 Thursday: 4 mi @ 10:56 Friday: Swim, Spin Saturday: 8 miles @ 10:56 Sunday: off *10:56 sounds painfully slow so I will try to incorporate some steeper hills. I hope everybody had a great Easter. Mine was wonderful (and am NOT doing the weigh-in today! ;)

I cannot imagine how gratifying it must be for you to have the hubs home! I get all whiney & pathetic if mine is gone more than 1 night!

Looks like some good workouts this week. I think I need to post my week's workouts on my blog to be more accountable!

I used a runners world training plan when I trained for my first
10k. It worked well.

Lots of good workouts this week! Glad you had a great Easter.

Ah, back to normal....I'm sure that's what it feels like. Yay for you.

Training looks good. Yes, dial up the incline. Good for the glutes, er, arse.

That is great that you graduated from ITB Rehab! Good luck with a new training plan - that always get's me pumped up!

I'm not usually a fan of runners world training plans. Most of the time I feel that the long run pace is too slow and that that interval pace is too fast. I feel like I'm always adjusting the pace.

If you're running on steep hills then I'm sure the 10:56 (at least for me) would be about right. =)
