Just curious to hear everyones plans for running this summer?
This summer i'm going to try to run 5-6 miles three times a week. I would run more but its hard because i have gym the other four days and i'm way too tired after gym so poooop! Can't wait till schools over! Only four days left :))
25-35 mpw, working up to 40. I did a half marathon in april, and am joining the cross country team at my university next semester! So this summer is all about keeping up and working on speed!
Usually I run in the morning, 3-9 miles, and sometimes I do evening runs, or do two a days with a longer run in the morning and a shorter one in the evening.
rocktarbrook- awesome! 13 years old and already doing a half!!! Totally cool!
I have a running schedule from my cross country coach (joining the team for the first time!) But so far I haven't kept up with that... oops! Trying for 3-6 miles a day 5x a week (thats his chart) but so far its been less because of my work, which requires me to either run or carry a 25-50lb bag on my back and walk. Its usually 3-5 hrs of work at a time (have fun guessing it haha!) So usually I'm pooped by the time I get back from work. Going to work on my energy though! And I'm excited :D!
4X a week.
Currently, XC practice hasn't started yet, so what I'm trying to do is run 4X a week.
One day a week will be a long run (like 6-ish miles hopefully), and the other three days will just be 30 minute runs, at a higher intensity (either a somewhat fast 4 mile run, or maybe a workout, speed work/tempo workout type of thing).
I actually broke my mile time yesterday on a treadmill (got 7:30!) and since it was on an incline, and at a fixed pace, I probably could have gone even faster!! It'd be nice to break 7 by the end of the summer, and I think it's entirely possible :D
I'm also planning to do a spinning class once a week, and on the 3 30 minute run days, I'm going to be lifting weights too, so all in all, I think I have a fairly well rounded program set up :)
I plan to complete c25k (failed the last time...) with a friend and run a 2 mile race with my dad and sister in July. We don't have to be the fastest people there so long as we make it to the finish! (: Annnddd, I'm planning on running a 5K in September with the same friend. (:
