MCM Training – Weeks 2-4

28 Jun

So. About this training thing…. Obviously (or maybe not so obviously) things haven’t been going well on that front!

Week 2 was not great :/ I mean…it was okay. At least I ran three times.

I’m starting to think that three runs a week isn’t going to cut it for me – I know I thought I’d be okay adding a Wednesday run to the Galloway plan but I think we know by now that if it isn’t on the plan it isn’t happening. Heck.The plan often doesn’t happen so….

It likely didn’t help that I was jumping in about 8 weeks late so my first long run was going to be 10 miles with no real build up. (Spoiler – I didn’t do that 10 that was on the plan)

I did manage to do my Tuesday and Thursday runs – they weren’t bad. Decent pace for early days but not great distance.

Sunday was just like another mid-week 2-ish-miler. I just wasn’t feeling it!

Week 3 was….well. I did my Tuesday run! And I actually felt good doing it so that’s a bonus, right?!

Tuesday evening Jen came over from Pennsylvania to volunteer at the Travelers Championship. I’ve been on the volunteer Executive Committee for the last few years so I was going to be there the rest of the week. So even though I didn’t run for the rest of the week I *did* manage to get in a LOT of steps on a lot of hills so I didn’t feel *too* bad about not running.

And then there was/is week 4. I am almost at the end of week 4 and have done FA as far as running this week – I’ve not done much of anything really, but spend time with the Phredders and continue my job search!


I’ve also decided I need a new plan and luckily it’s early enough that I can find a new one and build up my long run miles instead of jumping in at 10!  So stay tuned on Sunday for my NEW plan and my NEW commitment to it!
