Since I have no training plan at all right now and I’m pretty much just running whatever I feel like, I’ve ended up doing short runs more frequently. This has also been giving me opportunities to test out my new Altras. I don’t feel like I’ve had enough time to really decide if I like them or not; so far I think they are just ok. Here’s how the week of workouts looked:
Sunday: 2.51 miles in Altras
Monday: 5.02 miles @ 8:23 pace, core work
Tuesday: 3.6 miles @ 8:35 pace PM: Yoga
Wednesday: 3 miles on treadmill, Body Pump PM: 2.06 miles in Altras
Thursday: 4.15 miles @ 8:48 pace, core work
Friday: 3.31 miles @ 7:58 pace
Saturday: 11.1 miles @ 9:09 pace
Total: 34.75 miles
The weather this week was less than ideal. Tuesday was cold and rainy, and Wednesday and Thursday were REALLY windy. It was a little cold the other days, but compared to the rain and wind, I didn’t mind the cold at all!
It was nice to get my mileage back up a little while still keeping each run at 5 miles or less. However, I’m staring to feel a little lost without a training plan! I’ll probably do similar runs next week and then who knows what the holidays will bring. Hopefully I’ll come up with a plan to follow in January!
How were your workouts last week?
How do you decide how much you will run/what your workout will be if you’re not following a training plan?
