How am I feeling going into Week 6? One word: Tired. My trainer recommend certain vitamins to take to help with muscle soreness, so I'm going to give them a shot. I am superly encouraged to be enjoying the outdoor running with friends, even though we split up to be at our own paces. They always wait at the end for me, which is super sweet! (Thanks Ladies!) Now I just gotta get that nutrition back on track.

Monday: stretch and 90 min cross training
Tuesday: strength and 2.5 mile run
Wednesday: 60 min cross training
Thursday: strength and 60 min cross training
Friday: 2 mile run and 60 min cross training

I agree, compared to my flimsy training yours is hardcore! hehe. I think I'm taking way too many easy days!

I have a question though, when you do your runs do you "run" the whole thing? Or do you take mini-breaks for walking? If so, what would you say your ratio is? (Just curious ;-) My "runs" as of right now would appear to others as mostly walking with a little running thrown in for fun.)
