Trying to see what a good off season schedule would be. I think I need about 2 days rest after such a workout and I want to run one day a week. I can do ab and core work almost every day, or every other day, and maybe a hill day on the bike.... so, I have the makings of an off season program. I do think I am building strength.
Today I did foundation work on the track:
2 x 1 mile - 6:15, 6:45
2 x 100m striders ~ 14The miles were a bitch as usual and I took the last one a bit easy, although it was still hard. Maybe I should run slower and longer, maybe do 3 miles in 23 min or something? The new Saucony Ride training shoes are much softer than the Virratas and I think they'll be my mainstay throughout the off season.
The 100m striders felt good tonight, didn't mean to run so fast, but it really felt good, like I was running down hill.
