I haven’t posted since last week, so this post is going to be a summary of my training for the last few days.
Yesterday, I ran 6km. Today, I ran 8km. Is it getting easier? Maybe, a little. It’s still tougher to run then I’d like it to be. I am trying to take it easy, take lots of walking breaks, telling myself that I’m easing into my training. But at the same time, I’m thinking that some good old fashion high-intensity workouts would do me good and force my body to adapt. That’s what I did to get fitness back after taking a break from training during a vacation a few weeks before my marathon last year. One week of crazy-high-intensity workouts. It was tough but worked; I gained back a good deal of fitness I had lost during a three-week vacation break.
I haven’t swam this week and I doubt I’ll be able to get a swim session in my schedule. Maybe over the weekend, but it’s a big “maybe”.
So, writing this post is pushing me to plan a good old-fashion high-intensity
torture running session for tomorrow.
Below is a picture of some ducks crossing my path I took during one of my numerous walking breaks during today’s session.
