Great job on last week on the Stage III intervals. It really looks like you're getting the hang of this whole running thing. Tonight, we're going out for 35 minutes at Stage III (2 min run: 3 min walk) + 15 min FT after. Can you handle that? I can't hear you! Woo!
Since we are starting to run longer we will start to feel different things in our legs, feet, and the rest of our body. You must know when to push through the soreness or stop because you are in pain. Know your limits - be your body's coach. Is this an old injury that has not completely healed? Is it bad mechanics? Proper shoes? What ever the question and answer is if you are in pain STOP, rest and heal. Tending to a pain a couple days is much better than being sidelined half of the year. Don't worry. Mine was bad mechanics and I know it. It's not contagious. I promise.
This week's schedule:
Monday: 35 min run + 15 min FT
Tuesday: Cross Train
Wednesday: 35 min run + 15 min FT
Thursday: 25 min FT
Saturday: 45 min run
