Marathon Training Week 2: Being Flexible
Everything that I have read regarding training stresses the importance of the weekend long run. I understand that and do not question the methodology. So no matter what I do each weekend, I know that at some point I will be squeezing in my miles. However, despite planning to accomplish these mile every Saturday, sometimes my schedule changes and I have to be flexible.
Monday June 15th: At home DVD with strength training
Tuesday June 16th: HIIT Workout & Yoga
Wednesday June 17th: 2 maintenance Miles
Thursday June 18th: REST
Friday June 19th: Core Strengthening Yoga
Saturday June 20th: REST
Sunday June 21st: 6 Mile Long Run
On Friday night, instead of going to bed early like any good runner who’s marathon training would… I decided to go to a movie. Well not just any movie! I went to see Back to the Future (my all-time favorite movie) at Wolf Trap with the National Symphony Orchestra playing LIVE! It was totally worth it.
However, I did get to meet this little guy on Sunday AM.
How was your week? What’s your favorite movie? Do you ever find your self doing some adjusting to your training schedule?
