Training this week went much better than week 1. A couple of rough days at work and some pain in my lower back led to lower mileage than originally planned, but I am feeling good and excited about next week. My workouts for the week included the following:
Monday: Run 4 miles
Wednesday: Swimming (700 meters)
Thursday: 20 minute walk
Saturday: Run 6 miles & Pilates
While I didn’t put in quite as many miles as I planned, my runs felt good this week and I hope this continues. Swimming was a nice way to cross train this week. I need to swim more often. My upper body is much weaker than I would like.
