I had a decent week of workouts. I somewhat followed Hal Higdon’s Novice 2 Marathon Training Plan.
Monday was a scheduled rest day but I decided to do P90X3’s Dynamix which is a great dynamic stretching workout.
Tuesday was a three mile run.
Wednesday was a scheduled five mile run which I pushed until Thursday since that’s when my little guy has preschool. I decided to do Focus T25’s Speed 2.0 workout instead of the three mile run. My little guy joined me. 🙂
Friday was rest day.
Saturday was another rest day since my Parent’s were in town, so I wasn’t able to get any cross training in.
I’ve decided to switch things up a bit. Earlier I was thinking I could follow Hal Higdon’s Marathon training plan just for fun to see if I could really run further since the longest distance I’ve ran is a half marathon. But now I’m thinking I should take a little break from running. I think I’m going to attempt Insanity – the Asylum workouts and maybe incorporate a run here and there. I want to increase my fitness level. This 30-day program includes drills to maximize speed, coordination, agility, and power. I’ve done the regular Insanity program, a while back and liked it! Asylum is supposed to be much harder, so wish me luck. If it’s too much, my backup will be to do Insanity again or some sort of hybrid until Shaun T’s newest program Insanity: Max 30 comes out in December.
How’d your week go? Do you like to incorporate other workout progams while running?
