Sunday: Off/ Yoga Weights - all depends on how I feel
Monday- Run 9
Tuesday-weights/ IT BAND
Wednesday- Run 7 km
Thursday-Weights/ IT Band
Saturday- 10 K RACE!

 This race will be my first 10 k since my injury over 3 years ago.  Also it will be my second race since I started running again!

After this week I am going to start a half marathon plan... but I am not sure which one to use yet.  For me I have to do yoga at least once a week.  Also I have to do my IT exercise at least 2 times a week.  Also 1 bath a week.

My goal is to finish and to still like to run when I am finished with no injuries.

I have been tying my shoes too tight lately.  I feel like my heels need to not lift up at all, but this makes my arches die.  Last week after my long run I could barely walk after.  This past Friday when I did a full 10 k I loosened my shoes, then my feet did not hurt!  Yay, but I have to retrain myself to not feel the need to have my shoes so tight.....
