Monday Motivation: CONSISTENCY!

A lot of the marathon training plans I’ve come across talk about consistency.  It’s one of the most important and also one of the most over-looked elements of training.  You have to be consistent with your training in order to do well and to stay injury-free.  This means getting out and running 4-5 times a week {if you’re training for a long race}.  Even if it’s just a short run or a painfully slow run, you’re still out there running.  Be consistent and keep going!

Workouts for the Week

(loosely based off Week #3 from my marathon training plan):

Monday: Easy day = Power-walk + Tracy Anderson arm workout

Tuesday: 4 miles + ab workout (planks & mountain climbers)

Wednesday: 3 miles + strength training (squats, lunges, push-ups, etc.)

Thursday: 3 miles with hills + ab workout

Friday: Rest

Saturday: 7 miles

Sunday: Rest or power-walk

 

Enjoy your Monday!

(well, as much as you can for a Monday) :)
