This week is an interesting one, as far as my training schedule goes. I have my usual 3 days for cross-training, then my two speed training runs are both 3 miles, leading up to my long run of 18 miles on Saturday. I'm really hoping that having short runs during the week will help me have a really good long run experience, because that's where I feel I need the most work. So today, I started out my workout with level 1 of JM's 30 Day Shred. That DVD always gets my heart rate up and the sweat dripping. After that I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, followed by 45 minutes of walking on the treadmill while using ankle and hand weights. I only used the hand weights for the first 15 minutes, but I did keep the ankle weights on for the whole time.
