I just wanted to write a quick update on my running progress for the week. It was a success!
2 miles easy running
Alternate 1/2 mile run at race pace, with 4 min. walks (4X), 1 min. walks to warm up, cool down
rest or cross train
2 miles running on a hilly course
2-3 miles walking
Long run at easy pace, 3-4 miles -3 miles; plus 3 mile walk
Saturday: Rest or cross train- I will rest tomorrow! Well, I will be driving for 10-11 hours tomorrow.
I am heading off to the middle of nowhere tomorrow to visit my Grandma. Here’s my workout schedule for the week. I will be driving again next Friday, so I’ll have to switch some things up. I am just not sure what to switch yet. I am glad the weather will be in the 70s down south. Today’s run in the
cold very cool Chicago wind was a bit chilly for me. I will have to invest in some cold weather running gear, especially a hat and/or headband to cover my ears. I wore my Blackhawks hat today, but I don’t want it to get all sweaty!
Sunday- 3 miles easy run
Monday- Alternate 1 mile run at race pace with 4 minute walk (2X). I mile walks to warm up, cool down.

Have a great weekend! Time to hit the sack to rest up for my road trip.
