I was out for my run before 6.00 this morning and did a 5k. It was just the best to be out before the World was fully awake and have no expectations just running for the love. I find with marathon training it would be so easy to get into a rut that it loses the fun and enjoyment which is why I dont have a particular plan that I am rigid about. So far it looks alot like this:
Tues: 10 or 5k fast as poss
Weds: gym: 53 mins of cardio ( not treadmill)
Thurs: 30,20,10 intervals
Sun: long run
I do my long run every other week and this Sunday its going to be 20 miles. The alternate weeks I do about 10 miles on trails. I have no idea if any of that is what I should be doing but it feels OK. Also, it jumps around a lot depending on work and life!!!
How does everyone else find the balance?
