Weekly Workout Round Up: Week 7/12

October 6, 2014

This week’s theme was “Test your Limits”. I was supposed to run 29 miles. Unfortunately, I only got 10 miles. If you live in Florida, you know August is usually the rainiest month of the year. No so much this time around. The past few weeks we’ve been pummeled with rain either early in the morning or late in the afternoon.

Instead of the scheduled 5 runs according to the Nike+ training plan, I made it out three times for the shorter 3-4 mile runs. So, that means I didn’t get my “long run” in for the week. Although this is not the preferable way to train for a half marathon, there is still time.

Some adjustments will have to be made to this Nike+ training plan. Instead of running the scheduled 5 days, which end up in 3 short runs and 2 longer runs, I will be running 4 days (3 short/1 long). That’s has worked in the past so I’ll be sticking with it. So, here’s to a new week. And only four more training weeks to go!

    Hopefully you will get some better weather next week. 10 miles is still great.

    I seriously need to fit running in my schedule. I’m always so busy with work, blogging, and my kiddos, I have no time for running.

    I’m intrigued by that app! I’ll have to check it out. It’s great that you’re being flexible with your plan. I know a lot of us runners tend to freak out when a wrench gets thrown in the training plan. I’ve trained for a few races with just running 4 days a week and it worked great for me.
