Like I mentioned in my last post, I blew the extra weeks that I had built into my training, so now the 'official' training has begun. I'm following Hal Higdon's training schedule, but I'm using Jeff Galloway's method of run-walking.
This week consists of a 3/2/3/4 mileage week. I think it should be pretty easy, since I can consistently complete 3 miles. I think adding in the 4th mile on Sunday will tire me, but with extra walking it should be ok. I can't seem to get past the 3 mile mark...don't know why. I'm hitting a wall too early on. The upcoming weeks scare me b/c I'm adding a mile a week pretty much.
Yesterday I did 3 miles, and was tired at the end. Today was my short day and I did 2 miles. My legs are sore today! Tomorrow I don't run, it's a stretch and strengthen day.
I'm hungry. Very hungry. I find that on the day that I run, I have this ravaging appetite that I can't quite fulfill. It's crazy!
