Oh, it would be so easy for me to write out a 6 week training plan that I should have followed to get ready for the metric century, but it's a little late for that now. And honestly, I need to remember that getting ready for that ride isn't my only goal for the month. I also want to achieve running 3x week and hitting 12K steps/day on average.
What I've done so far this week: Sunday was a lazy day, but I got in short runs each day Mon, Tue, & Wed. The distances were 1.8mi, 3.1mi, and 3.3mi. I realize that I'm not running far enough to train for any serious races, but it's far enough to stay healthy, and that is the main goal.
Looking forward: I hope to get one more 3 mile run done today. Tomorrow the plan is a 20 mile bike ride. Then on Saturday, a 44 mile ride. Between the two days I will have gone the full 64 that's coming the following weekend at Day of the Tread. Then I hope to run on Mon and Tues again. I'll be travelling Wed-Sat and don't expect much more than walking as exercise, although I'll bring running stuff "just in case" I get a chance Thu or Fri. That Sunday is the metric century.
So clearly this wouldn't have been my Plan A, but it's reasonable as a Plan B, right? RIGHT?!?!
