January 16 – 29 Training

The weeks are cruisin’ and my body is feeling great.

Through week 6 I struggled with strength and only got one session in. For week 7, I scheduled my strength in advance. I did not feel like it most days after my run, but if the schedule said ‘upper body’ I sucked it up and did it. Once I began, I did more than I thought I would.

I’ll continue to schedule my strength training in advance to ensure it happens.
