July Calendar Notes:
Running – How long / Number of miles?
If you are following a training plan – keep it up!
You can do your runs and incorporate the strength moves into your plan for conditioning. Listen to your body and don’t add or change anything if you’re feeling fatigued, sore or injured.
Note: Run Training Plans are written to balance pushing your endurance and fitness to improve without causing injury. Adding in something extra (like speed work) puts additional wear and tear on your body. Don’t add in anything if you already feel like your body is sending any signals of potential injury or stress.
The main goal should always be to show up on race day feeling 100%. So make it a priority to give your body the rest and fuel it needs to recover and stay healthy.
If you don’t have a training plan (right now) you can use the 2nd calendar page – it’s more of a running schedule.
The calendar suggests 3 runs a week: Monday / Wednesday / Friday. Saturday is an optional day where you can choose if you want to run or do another activity.
If your goal is to stay fit and healthy aim for about >>> 30 minutes of running (or run/walk) Monday / Wednesday / Friday.
If you’re a new runner, coming back after time off or need some flexibility in your plan due to other factors – use the Run / Walk Strategy. Note how long you run and how long you walk (usually in minutes) and how it feels. Write this on the July Calendar so you can track your progress. And this will give you extra insight on when you can run for longer intervals if you want to build that up.
Running Tip: A Running Log can give you so much information to help you run faster, longer, better and healthier. Use it!
Using a Training Journal is one of the best running books you can read. It’s a ton of information on the most important runner in your life – YOU. And you can use training logs or journals to see what type of workouts help you get faster or run longer… how much mileage your body can take without injury… your fitness level at different times in the past and how those compare with your race times… and more.
If you have more time and a base level of fitness where you want to do more >>> 30-60 minutes of running may be a better range for you. Check out this example of how much to run each week for inspiration to plan your runs for the week.
Running Schedule Example:
Monday: 30-45 minute run
Wednesday: 30 minutes on a hilly route
Friday: 30-45 minute run
Saturday: you choose an activity
Keep Track of all your workouts right on the calendar. (There are 2 pages – first page is mostly blank to journal. Page 2 is more of a running schedule.)
This will help you see your progress, observe your body’s signals (good or bad) and track your mileage and pace so you have more information to decide if you’re ready to run more or run faster.
