YAY!! Week one training is done and I survived without any injuries!!!
Ever since my stress fracture I am so nervous every single time I run, every ache and pain puts me into a panic. Finishing this week feeling good is a great accomplishment for me both physically and psychologically.
For this training plan I have gone back to the basics, just running. My goal is to just finish the Brooklyn Half injury free and my training plan is reflective of that goal. I have not included any speed work or tempo training because I find these run push me farther than I am willing to go at this point. I am not looking to for speed right now, I am looking to enjoy my running and to finish this half marathon, preferably in under 2:15. I know, putting a number on the time I want to achieve defeats my goal of just finishing, but this is normally my secret goal that I don’t tell anyone about, but I am telling you…lol. In reality I am just hoping to finish and that is all!!!
Here was my plan for the week, including my planned and actual (A):
Total Mileage: 9 miles
I know this seems like such little mileage, but I have not run 4 miles in almost 6 months, so for me this is a high mileage week. I am truly embracing the “easing back into fitness” mantra. I feel I achieved a good balance this week between running, strength and stretch!!! I am ready for week 2!!!!
