Day 4, week 1

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!


  1. You can definitely handle the higher mileage!

  2. Yeah that's good that you are sticking with the mileage you are used to until the plan meets you where you are. Keep up the great work!
