and scheduled to run 3 miles. I talked to my dad last night about my training and he told me that I have enough of a fitness level to not worry about the shorter runs during the first few weeks. He said to keep doing what I am doing, but also to watch my schedule to make sure I stay up on my mileage. So it's settled. I will go back to my 5-6 mile runs during the week and my 9-10 mile runs on the weekends for the next couple weeks. That way, I can make sure to incooporate strength training too. Then come the 4th of July week/weekend, I will begin to follow the program as it is written.
So, instead of a 3 mile run tonight, I plan on doing at least 4-5 miles. Last night I was suppose to run 3 miles but I ran 3.5 miles (in 29:15), strength trained for shoulders, did 30 push ups and some core work.
It's supposed to be a nice day today! Sunny and 80. Since my son has a baseball game, I won't be able to run until 7-7:30pm this evening. So hopefully it won't be as warm. But even if it is, I won't complain. We get shafted in Michigan when it comes to summers so I better enjoy this while I can!
