2. FOUR strength training sessions a week: This shouldn't be a problem since I've been used to doing 5 for the past few months but finding the balance between running and strength might be a tad difficult.
3. ONE yoga/stretch session a week: I feel like I'm probably setting myself up for failure on this one since I didn't do it during marathon training but maybe you all can tell me how great yoga is for runners and it will help me do it.
I'm also attempting to finish the LiveFit program and I have three weeks to go so my running might suffer a little until then, but I'm confident I can fit in the runs necessary to perform well in March.
So to bring back Say It Do It from my marathon training days here is what I'm planning on doing this week:
Week of January 9-5, 2012:
Monday: Leg day! I'm cutting and pasting from the 2 leg days on LiveFit so I'm just doing 1 leg day
Tuesday: Back, Arms, Abs + 3 mile run
Wednesday: Chest, Shoulders, Abs + 6 mile run with friend
Thursday: Back, Biceps, Abs + sprints
Friday: Shoulder, Triceps, Calves
Sunday: REST or Yoga (I should probably try to do this the first week of my new goals right?)
And I laughed so hard at this photo I had to share...you're welcome!
Question: How many days a week do you run when training for a race?
