I haven’t shared much of my training lately because I’m not following a training plan! Well, I’m not officially following a training plan right now. Which is nice because it gives me a lot of flexibility and also a nice break from following a plan 24/7, since I train year round.
I’m not following a training plan because I don’t have a fall marathon this year but I am still training and following an unofficial plan in my head.
Most weeks look something like this.
Monday: Rest Day/long walk with the dog day
Tuesday: Speedwork. 1 mile repeats, 800 meter repeats or 400 meter repeats.
Wednesday: 3 miles in the morning before work and 4-6 miles after work
Thursday: 3-4 miles in the morning before work
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: Long run usually around 14 miles
Sunday: super easy run usually 4-6 miles
How many miles per week am I running? Hmm maybe 35-40. Usually I am all about the miles and love adding up m miles for the week but lately I’m enjoying the unofficial plan with no weekly mileage goals.
Right now I have another half marathon coming up and then a couple 10ks and maybe a 5K. At the end of November I’m thinking/supposed to start 50K training!
Do you ever run without a training plan?
