AUGUST CALENDAR NOTES and TIPS:
There are 3 Runs Per Week and 2 Strength Training Days. You decide what to do on Saturdays – it can be another run, hike, bike, swim or other activity.
Sunday is a Rest Day. Take an additional rest day each week if needed.
If you already have a training plan – keep it up! Consider using the blank calendar to track your workouts or print out the Running Log.
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.
Running Goal – Fitness, Health or Weight-loss
If your goal is fitness, health or weight loss aim for >>> 30 minutes of running or Run/Walk – Monday / Wednesday / Friday.
Running Goal – Run a Race
If your goal is to run a long distance race >>> consider using a training plan designed to help you hit those goals.
New Runner or Returning Runner
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. Start off with shorter amounts of time to build up your endurance. Listen to your body and take breaks or push yourself based on what your body is feeling.
Note how long you run and how long you walk (usually in minutes) and how it feels. Use the blank spaces on the calendar to track your progress. 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!
Your 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.
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.
