Weekly Training Review: Week of 2/20 - 2/26
As a way to stay accountable I've decided to join others in sharing my weekly training. I hope that by sharing this info publicly it will help me to stay motivated and, just maybe, there may be an occasional tid-bit of info that someone else may benefit from.
At this point I really feel like I'm starting over in many ways. I'm twenty pounds heavier than a year ago and my fitness is no where near what it once was. With this in mind my main goal right now is consistency, consistency, consistency.
This week I ran three times:
Distance: 10 miles
This run was a good motivator and confidence booster. Felt pretty good during the run and legs weren;t too sore the next day.
Distance: 7.5 miles
Felt good again during this run. Followed this run up with some chest and ab work.
Distance: 5.5 miles
Nice easy run to finish this week.
Total Miles: 23 miles
All of my running so far this year has been on a treadmill so far. I'll be on a treadmill at my local gym until mid-April when my membership runs out. As the weather turns spring-like I'll also start getting outside more often. But, like I said above, my goal right now is consistency. I want to get out four times this coming week and hit 25 miles. I'm going to spend the spring months building back up a base then in late spring begin to ramp up the training for the PA Super Hike and Ultra.
