Hal Higdon Week 2

Week 1 has been completed with mixed reviews. I found getting back on the wagon (or pavement) to be both difficult and rewarding. My cardio strength has definitely decreased after all of those months on the couch, but I completed each 2 mile run without having to stop. I had a hard time (as in, didnt do it) finding opportunities for cross-training. I dont have a gym membership, any sort of at-home workout equipment, or any DVD's or things of the sort. I am starting an ab class in a week or so, and that will fit nicely into the plan, and getting my butt to Stroller Strides would help as well.

Week 2:
Monday: "Partial rest" (Use today for stretching and strengthening)
Tuesday: 2 miles, easy pace
Wednesday: 30 min cross-training
Thursday: 2 miles + strength training
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 30 min cross-training (it should be aerobic)
Sunday: 2.5 miles
