This year - knock on wood - is a completely different story. I'm feeling stronger and my motivation to get fit couldn't be higher. All I want to do is run faster times again and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen.
So when I got my most recent block of training from Coach Matt, I was excited to see weekly mileage back at 40 with long runs gradually getting longer. Coupled with classes at the Y and a bit of extra strength training on my own, I'm confident I'm way ahead of where I was last December!
Here's this week's plan:
Monday: 6 mile run + Y-Kettle Bell Intervals + Strength Training
Tuesday: 7 mile workout, inc. 400m intervals
Wednesday: 4 mile run + Y-Fuse + Absolution
Thursday: 6 mile run + Y-Blitz + Y-Kettle Bell Intervals
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 12 mile run
Sunday: 5 mile run
Total: 40 miles
Starting 2015 with better running fitness - it's my gift to myself this year ;)
My questions for you:
- How do you stay in shape or improve fitness over the holiday season?
- What are you gifting yourself this year?
