As I get all cozy on the couch and wait for the Biggest Loser to start, I’d thought I would share with you a training plan I have grown to love.
I think it should have been titled “Run Less, Run More Efficient” This plan is genius for the following reasons:
1. Run 3 days a week, Cross-train 2 days, Option to run/cross-train a 4th day, Rest
2. It focuses on quality runs, not quantity of runs
3. It discusses the importance of strength training/avoiding injury
4. It’s legit!
I won’t lie, I don’t stick to this plan religiously. I use it more as a guide. It has made me a more efficient runner and I have seen improvement in my race times. I like the tables for interval runs, tempo runs and long runs. If I wasn’t such a schedule hating freak this would be the plan for me. I definitely like that it changes it up so if I am stuck running in the gym I’m not just doing the same old run on the treadmill.
If anyone is interested in the info in the book, I’d be glad to share! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is enough interest I may do another post with run info!
Uh oh- the Golden Spoon is melting! Off to eat desert and watch people bust their hineys and look totally fab. Is it wrong that I eat fro-yo while watching a weight loss show????
