So I may have mentioned that I have a couple upcoming fall half marathons. Couple… eek. And by upcoming I mean the first is on the 20th of September. That is like days away. After hurting my ankle early in August, I took a couple weeks of of running and have been struggling since.
I used free printable calendars from landeelu, a Sharpie Stainless Steel Pen and a set of colored Sharpie Pens, I picked up at Walgreens, to do the scheduling. I like things to look pretty and be somewhat organized (who doesn’t?) so I stuck with a color coded system. Black for races, green for spin class, red for yoga and blue for runs.
Now that I have everything laid out, I am hoping that I will stick to this schedule somewhat closely. Unless of course the weather doesn't really cooperate. Because running with the stroller in the rain is not happening around here. But at least having everything written out and looking pretty eliminates another excuse from my arsenal.
So when I complete a run (or move one) I update and adjust my training calendar with the distance and my pace. Note that long run with a stroller vs short run on a treadmill means really different paces.
