As I mentioned previously, high school golf is in full swing (ha! get it? swing? like a golf club!) right now and that means one of three things:
- I have no "bail out" option of running after school anymore.
- I'm putting a lot more miles on my legs.
- My short game stills sucks.
I'm convinced that #2 is the source of my IT band issues that I've had. Previously, I'd get in 20 or so miles of running per week and then walk a minimum of 10 miles per week with golf clubs on a generally hilly course (yes, Omaha has hills. Look it up.) So, if I'm going to PR....which I'd really like to do...I had to come up with a strategy. So, without further adieu, I give you the "This Should Work Training Plan."
Monday - Rest
Tuesday - 4-5 mile tempo run
Wednesday - Yoga, pilates, or some sort of stretching for 1/2 hour
Thursday - 4-5 mile tempo run
Friday - Stretching thing again
Saturday - Long run
Sunday - Say that I'm going to stretch, but really sleep in.
Here's how flexible my plan is: I can switch Saturday and Sunday around.
That's how I'm going to roll. This should work, right? RIGHT??
