I found this training plan online, and I love it! I have modified it based on my own schedule and what I will be able to accomplish but there is no doubt that I will be working hard! The schedule calls for 5 days/week but I am going to push for 6. 4 days running plus 2 days of other activity (Zumba, yoga, rollerblading with Randy, or a P90X workout at home, etc.) The plan is 8 weeks but on Monday when I began I had 11 weeks remaining so I extended week 7 into 4 weeks. I am really excited about this one!!
Day 1 - 2:1:2 Means walk 2 miles, run 1 mile, walk 2 miles = 5 miles total
I modified a bit like so - 0.8 walk, 2.0 run, 1.4 walk = 4.2 miles, total time 1:00:25 = 14'26"/mile
Day 2 - Zumba!! Always a blast :) My sister convinced me to wear my hand-weights the entire class, and man I felt it at the end!
Day 3 - Slept late + heat wave here in MA = no outside running for this kid. Indoor workout this afternoon!
