Training Schedule Juggle

Last heard from me, I was on an easy week of jogs. I got 3 easy runs of 6, 6 and 7 mile runs in. I followed each of those up with 30-50 minutes of strength training immediately following the run. I'm still trying to find my strength routine. I know, I know, I'm a bit, ok a lot, late adding strength training. I hate weight lifting. So boring! But I figured I'd better start some. Better late than never.

I did like a couple of my routines, but I didn't lift heavy enough. Even with a 20# weight belt, I need to go heavier than my 20# dumbbells (total of 60#) for squats, lunges and deadlifts, so I have to get out my barbell next time.

This past week, I only ran once, an easy run of 2 miles. Yep, that's it. I did do 30 minutes of strength training though...

Tuesday, I was working my day job, packing to get ready to go to an endurance ride and I was lazy and actually slept that day instead of squeezing in a 6 mile run.

Wednesday, we traveled to the endurance ride. Now, Thursday, I thought I might get out and run some, but the weather and circumstances and my own excuses kept me from it.

So the only redeeming thing about last week was that I did a whopper of a cross training session on Friday. I rode a 50 mile endurance ride on my mare, Sasha. Of course, that made me SO SORE, I couldn't even get my easy 2 miles in today. Tuesday, I'll run my long run. I promise. Even if I have to run it on the treadmill. Unless the vet can see my other horse...Then, who knows?

I'm freaking out. Four weeks out from the marathon and I can't seem to keep my training together!! This is not going to be pretty.

If you're interested, head on over to my Endurance Riding Blog and check out my cross training day.
