I said that when I got back from vacation I would try and train smart. What better way than to use a SMART coach app on my phone?! Duh!
These were the options I chose :
Train 31-35 miles a week
Half Marathon time 1:49 ( that is my goal)
6 week training plan (race is on April 15)
Long runs on Sunday
Overall it looks like 3 days of easy runs (9:00 pace or slower), One speed day and one long run day. I also plan on fitting in 2 days of Body Pump and HOPEFULLY yoga. I am hoping to stick to this. 6 weeks. That’s it. I can do 6 weeks of anything! Lets see if I can accomplish my goal and NOT overdo it!
Today was a rest day. Tomorrow I will do an easy 5 miles. I am going to try and stick to the plan as much as possible but make exceptions for nice days when I want to run a little longer than planned. As long as I stay close to the scheduled milage but on the right pace, I will be happy!
Wish me luck 😛
