This week marks the second week of my second semester of nursing school. It is also the second week of my half marathon training plan. I am hopeful that I will be able to hit all my training runs as successfully as I did last week. However, this week is SUPER busy and I can see the potential for stress.
Here is what the training week looks like:
Sunday: 4 miles easy, before the Super Bowl starts.
Monday: 6×400 intervals before class
Tuesday: 6 miles easy. (I may change this to a tempo run.) This will have to be done in the morning, because I have to go to the hospital to do some prep work for my clinical rotation Tuesday afternoon.
Wednesday: 4 miles (possibly might add some incline work), after my day of clinical rotation at the hospital.
Thursday: rest day. I’ll be at the hospital all day for clinical.
Friday 4 miles easy before work
Saturday: 6 miles.
Numbers-wise, it is an easier week. In reality, it is going to be tough. My cousin has two basketball games (Tuesday and Friday) that I really want to go watch. I know that I am going to have a TON of school work to do and there is always the mommy-guilt. That, and my family seems to want to eat dinner every. single. night. What’s up with that!? 😉
Tim has an eye exam on Tuesday and a dentist appointment on Wednesday. I know that is really his schedule, but it means that I will have to take both kids to Jaden’s tae kwon do class on Tuesday and it will really cut into my studying time. I will have to hurry back from my clinical rotation on Wednesday to get the kids from day care.
I have high hopes. We’ll see what the reality turns out to be.
How is your training going?
