In my Initial Post about training for my first full Marathon, I posted a picture of my potential training plan. Since then, I have been trying out the early weeks in order to see how I like it and have decided to make a few adjustments.
I've moved my long runs from Sunday to Saturday. I found that I had the available time more often on Saturday mornings and the Y is open at 6am, instead of noon on Sundays, so weather won't stop me. This also means that I get a full rest day on Sundays which will be great recovery for my legs
A new addition into my routine is PiYo! It is a fantastic mix of Pilates and Yoga which just uses body weight and focuses on the core. I sweat more from 20 minutes of PiYo than I do from 40 minutes of running. I have Mondays scheduled for it, but will also weave it in a couple of more times when I need a good stretch or just feel up to it.
I'm currently keeping Insanity on Fridays as my High Intensity Cross Training workout each week. I may substitute other things like Body Attack here, so I'm staying open to that.
