Week in review: 4/16/2012 – 4/22/2012

Things are starting to roll now. I’m getting out of bed in the morning and enjoying runs again. At this point, I’m basically planning on running the Walt Disney World marathon. I’m not going to register yet, though. It doesn’t fill up as fast as it used to and anything can happen. I’ll wait until the early bird deadline unless it gets really full for some reason.

Here’s how the week went:

Monday morning: Core/Lower body workout

Monday evening: 3 mile threshold pace run with the World of Beer group

Tuesday morning: 3 miles easy

Tuesday afternoon: 2 mile very easy geocaching run

Wednesday: Core/lower body workout

Thursday: 6 miles easy (sped up at the end)

Friday: 3 miles easy

Saturday: 8 miles easy

Sunday: Off

Total: 25 miles

I think I finally fixed my Garmin Forerunner, so can actually get times for my runs in the coming weeks. I sketched out the summer and figured out where I need to be at the end of the summer to really ramp up into a solid training plan that will get me close to the 3 hour mark in January. I’ll need to be around 60 miles per week at the end of the summer. Given that fact, I can stick with 25 miles per week for a couple more weeks and then increase my mileage 5-8 miles per week every 3 weeks.

I’ve also done some research into producing some home gym equipments, so I might have some fun “how to” posts coming up!
