I was originally going to use the FIRST 3 day a week plan as it fits with what I do quite well – speed work on a Tuesday, a tempo run on a Thursday and a long run at the weekend. The other four days are a mixture of resting and cross training, swimming and cycling in my case. But, due to the reluctance of my plantar fasciitis (PF) to heal I need to take an easier option so for this week it’s a bit of a make it up as I go along to see how I feel kind of plan!
Mon – rest
Tuesday – 3 miles steady
Wed – rest (first day back at work after the hols so wont feel like it!)
Thurs – 4 miles steady
Fri – rest
Sat – 5 miles easy
Sun – bike
This should mean I can still let my PF recover, fit work, childcare and everything else in between in. Tuesday was completed according to plan – slight PF pain but a bit of ice after sorted it out.
