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.
