Day # -68 Training regime

Finally settled on a training regime that seems to work.

I’ve been struggling, for almost a month now, with the training schedules. It never seems to work because being summer, there is always something else (more fun) to do, viz camping, street festivals, cycling or family/friend visits. So after factoring all those unpredictable clauses, I think I was able to arrive at a training schedule that has a good potential to work.

Monday: Afternoon/Evening – 2 hours in gym. Right now I am at 8 km, but I plan to increase this to 15 km in 4 weeks.
Tuesday: Morning – Yoga, rest
Wednesday: Evening – 2 hours with the running group. Last time I barely did 6 km, it has to increase.
Thursday: Morning – Yoga, rest
Friday: Afternoon – 1 hour in gym for 8 km
Saturday and Sunday: Rest

The goal is to clock 25-30 km each week for the next 3 weeks, and then increase it to 35 km.

I already had my yoga class this morning. Its a new gym and a new 7am class, probably that may explain why I was the only one today. 🙂

    Makes me think I should start yoga again… I loved it.

    • Yep, once a week is a good pace!

  2. Ah, I love it when I am the only one in the gym. Which is why when it’s winter time, I wake up at 5:20 AM to be at the gym by 6:00 AM, when it opens up.

    • He Man! Always a pleasure to read your comments!

  4. lol Priyank I think you are still doing well. Just remember before the run, 1-2 take a rest, do nothing, eat well, relax. It is good to be fresh. You will do well, but until you still have lots to do I guess. Good luck, I will be tracking your progress from time to time. Anna 🙂

    • Thanks Anna, I will remember those tips! 🙂 I am getting nervous, but not too much…
