Ok, Jamie and Grace, here we go:
Week 5 and 6: Recovery
Your body is probably pretty tired from the last month of running. These next two weeks are about allowing your body to recover, so that it can continue to build. In our house analogy, I suppose we are letting the cement dry. These two weeks should be about staying hydrated (lots of water), trying to eat the right foods and letting your achy muscles have some rest (but not too much). You may also want to take some time to read more about running.
Tuesday- 1 mile
Thursday- 1.5 miles
Satruday/Sunday- rest one day/1 mile the next
Sounds very doable, eh?
Jamie, I really enjoyed reading your running story about your "cheerleaders." How cute! Hope you all have a great week!
Ps. Grannybear's birthday is tomorrow! :)
