Here’s my plan, more or less. (SS stands for strength training/stretching; CT stands for cross-training)

training schedule 2

Since last check-in, I finished Week 9.

Tuesday I ran four miles at a pace of 11:18 min/mile. Then, I did the workout from Self that uses a 10-lb weight plate. I also took the dog for about a ½mile walk. He’s likes this cooler weather much better than the hot summer temps.

Wednesday I skipped, but made up for it Thursday. I went out to the gym. First I did 30 mins of the weight machines, mostly arms, then I did 50 minutes on the elliptical. I know, it was supposed to be 60 minutes, but I was feeling close on time.

I ran out of time Friday, and Sunday we went fishing, but I did my six mile run on Monday. My pace was 11:28 min/mile.

6 miles

I’m a bit sad. I went to finally register for the race I want to run in November and it’s sold out. 🙁 I didn’t think about that possibility. I had put off registering until I knew for sure I’d be able to do it – 10 miles still seems like a far way. I put my name on the waiting list, so cross your fingers for me.
