Good Morning blog friends!
I was looking at my training schedule this morning as I was rushing out the door for work. Guess what I saw. 8 miles on Wednesday? what??
Last week I did 7 miles on the treadmill and that was pushing it. 8 miles on the treadmill, oh dear. My schedule this week is:
Mon – 2
Tues – Rest
Thur – 2 or 3, I forget.
So, my question is, Are mid-week long runs important to you?
Running 8 miles in my neighborhood is quite a challenge. It requires me to run up and down a lot of various roads, none of which have street lights or sidewalks. Oh, and pedestrians around here, not respected, so it’s kinda scary running in the road in the daylight. Okay, so I could do 8 miles on the treadmill, but what about in two weeks when the schedule says 10 miles on a Wednesday? WHO CAME UP WITH THIS TRAINING PLAN?
My other concern about 2 long runs in one week, my hip. What if it is not ready to tackle those distances in the same week? During yesterdays run I was feeling some soreness starting around mile 6.5 – It was tolerable and it was no where near as painful as it has been in the past few weeks. However, it was present.
So, I think I need to modify this plan. I think I will with mid-week runs at 7 miles. This is attainable on the treadmill, and in my book, still counts as a kinda sorta, but not really long run.
Oh, one more question; How do you get your daily vegetables and fruits?
I drank some orange juice this morning and I have a banana, apple, and yogurt with blueberries for snacks today. I googled and found out that juice only counts if its 100% juice, but that it contains more calories than just a regular orange.
You will never find me just chowing down on an orange, GROSS. The pulp makes me want to throw up, and I get sores on my gums if I eat straight oranges(or any citrus), ick.
I will eat almost anything but fruit textures weird me out. Watermelon, not happening. Strawberries, you must be kidding me. Straight peaches, ew furryness. Suggestions?
I have a busy day today, yay! I’m genuinly excited about being busy.
Happy Monday Ya’ll
