Yeah, yeah, I haven’t posted about my progress much. It’s been kind of slow going. I’m finally coming out of my slump (thank goodness), although now it’s starting to warm up which is inevitably going to slow me a little.
As you can see, for the past three weeks, I cut my running down to 3x a week. I think I’m finally ready to move that back up to 4x for a little while.
I’ve also been trying to do more strength training on my legs, glutes, and hips (marked as “legs”) and also introducing some plyometrics (marked as “plyo”) into my routine. That first week back of doing strength training was rough. I don’t think I’ve ever been that sore. Everyone at work was asking what was wrong because of how slow I was moving. I think it is helping though.
I did go do one track workout in the past few weeks, but with all the races, I haven’t been too focused on doing speed work.
As you may have guessed, I don’t really have a plan for Kentucky Derby now. While I knew trying for sub-2:10 was lofty, I think it’s even loftier now, so I’m just going to see how I feel that morning and run it as best I can.
