…I’ve been here for years. I’m corny, I know. 🙂
Today marks the beginning of my return to running after obtaining clearance from my physical therapist. Since I have not run since November 2016, I will be following Jeff Galloway’s beginner 5K program. Using a run/walk program is a great way to build a training base while reducing the risk of injury.
Jeff Galloway’s 5K program runs 15 weeks and in order to keep me motivated, I’ve registered for the Rescue Run 5K, which occurs at the end of the 15 weeks. Talk about perfect timing, eh? This run benefits The Monster Milers, a shelter dog running and rescue organization in Philadelphia. I’m also excited because it is my first run as a Oiselle Volée runner, a wonderful and supportive community of women.
Plans for this week: (Per Jeff Galloway’s Program)
Monday – Walk or XT
Tuesday – Run 10-15 minutes
Wednesday – Walk or XT
Thursday – Run 10-15 minutes
Friday – Walk or XT
Saturday – Rest Day
Sunday – 1 mile
My XT usually involves taking a class on my Peloton Bike or swim at the gym pool. Stretching/yoga is part of my daily routine, which will aid in my return to running, as well as the recovery process.
Week 1, here I come. Follow my daily journey on Instagram.
Have a great week, and if you’re in the middle of a heat wave (as we are in PA), stay cool.
