back at square one

Well you guys- we are at day 1 of my new training program- and when I say ‘Day 1’, I not only mean the first day of the program, but also starting from basics when it comes to fitness and running.

Running through most of my pregnancy (read about it here and here), definitely has helped me keep some sort of fitness level- I can tell a difference on the way my body has reacted after this pregnancy as well as from my short jogs/weights already- but I don’t care who you are and what you did during pregnancy- your body has gone through some major shizz the last several months and is just not the same- not only that, but I have csections so I’ve had to recover from major surgery which has left my core a MESS. BUT- all of that aside- I now have some work to do and as you know from this post- I’m excited to get back at it as I have some pretty big goals to tackle this coming up year. I won’t lie though- it is frustrating when you go out for what should be a super ‘easy’ run in your head (2-4 miles) only to find you can barely make it and WAY slower than your 26.2 mile pace once was!

Back to the present though- I have been jogging about 4x per week 2-4 miles for the last several weeks and think I am ready to attempt a little more scheduled training.

this is what I am thinking:

I didn’t include any paces for the workouts- because I am going to go off effort for this training cycle vs a designated pace- because I really don’t know where my paces should fall right now. I will know better after this cycle for the next phase though!

I don’t have any races lined up officially as of right now- I want to see how this training goes first- then re-evaluate and go from there. I do have some dates in mind though…keep you posted!

 

happy running!
