Daily Training Notes

Daily Schedule Notes

Monday: Build endurance with long duration cardiovascular activity.

Tuesday: Continue to build cardiovascular endurance, but give your joints a break from running.  Pick an activity that prevents overtraining.  Good examples are: cycling, swimming, light weight training, and low to no impact cardiovascular machines (elliptical).

Wednesday: Your goal this day is to be able to run the majority, if not all, of your mileage.  At first you may not be able to and that's fine.  Start by walking 2 minutes then running 1 minute.  Repeat that until you've completed your miles.  Slowly increase your running time and decrease your walking time until you are running your full mileage.

Thursday: Continue to build cardiovascular endurance, but give your joints a break from running.  Pick an activity that prevents overtraining.  Good examples are: cycling, swimming, light weight training, and low to no impact cardiovascular machines (elliptical).

Friday: You aren't running as far today so work on speed.

Again, if you are unable to run the entire time, start by walking 2 minutes then running 1minute.  Repeat that until you've completed your distance.  Slowly increase your running time and decrease your walking time until you are running the full distance.

Saturday: Reward yourself with a day of rest.

Sunday: Building endurance with a long duration cardio.  This will give your joints a rest from the impact of running.
