I’m starting to read a variety of purposeful runs that runners take into consideration – like tempo, hiit, recovery and hill repeats. There are more but as I go on more runs, I’m sure I’ll be learning more! I composed a few of them that I found most useful right now in a weekly schedule this week, minus Monday where I was actually feeling kind of tired so I decided to rest and had a nice restorative sleep to prime myself for the week.
Last week, my average pace was a scary, dragging 11:47 pace per mile but that’s not from consistent runs which I need to do otherwise I’m going to be well, dragging in my next race.
(Bumping up Monday’s schedule) Tempo with core work and maaaaybe Zumba.
Recovery Run w/ Strength Training
Hill intervals (in neighborhood or on treadmill, oh so challenging!) with Zumba class
LSD (45 minutes of elliptical or stationary bike), Core work
Distance Run (tentative)
I can’t believe next weekend is already October! And that will unveil my new running schedule – and it’s going to be challenging! What are about you – What do you like best about Autumn running? Are you planning to run a big (or small!) Autumn race – which one?
