A virtual running group is perfect for me since I am kind of an antisocial runner. Even when I run with the Seattle Green Lake Running Group I run at the back of the pack and have my headphones in. I’m kind of an introvert and running is “me time” and I do a lot of reflection.
Hope you have enjoyed joining the group and happy you have week 1 behind you.
Follow Two Working Moms and use the hashtag #TWMrunners to keep the group going. If you don’t have a running app, just take a photo and give us the details about your run in your Facebook or Instagram comments.
This week we are adding another day to our weekly running schedule for a total of 3 runs. This will be our schedule for the remaining 10 weeks. Of course, listen to your body and do what you think is best.
Now that you know we will have 3 runs a week this is a great time to think about your running schedule and when to run. Ideally, you will have a rest day in between runs. So maybe if you want to keep your weekends free you can run on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Next week we are going to add in one long run a week for the rest of the challenge. If you are doing a MWF schedule, think about what day you want to do your long run. Will you have 2 hours to run 10 miles on Monday or is Friday a better day?
Life happens and sometimes you have to adjust as you go. For me, I like to run my two shorter runs during the weekday, early before heading to work. I then do my long run over the weekend when I have more time.
Keep up the good work and trust me, you will get stronger, and it will get easier if you keep it up. * L
