Week 12?! Seriously?! That means I’m 2/3 of the way through training, with 6 weeks left. I know that I have a lot of work left in these remaining weeks (ahem 19 and 20+ miler, not to mention the whole 26.2 on race day), but I must say being able to count the number of runs (including the race) that are over 10 miles in distance on ONE hand is pretty awesome. So without further ado, this week’s workouts. I should note that this week, while it was a cutback, was particularly light on running/exercise as the end of the week include sick days/exhaustion. So here’s to a healthy next month and a half and getting back on track!
Monday – strength training and abs (short, but better than nothing)
Tuesday – 5 miles in the am
Wednesday – 5 miles in the am
Thursday – came home from school sick
Friday – another off day, home from school sick
Saturday – 13.75 – the first time I’ve truly overdressed for a run – I’m not used to sun and 40s!
Sunday 5-8 miler (not sure yet)
Monday – 5 miles (pm), outside
Tuesday – 8 miles on the TM
Wednesday – random off day
Thursday – 5 miles with 3x.5 miles @3.5 incline – went super late (after dinner) for me, which was impressive I actually made it to the gym. (TM)
Friday – 18 miles, with the last 2.5 on the treadmill including 3x.4 miles @3.5, 4, 4 incline
Saturday – 45 minute spin with jumps and 15 or so of stretching and foam rolling-felt SO good!
Sunday – lift and abs, 10 min bike
Can you tell I’m back in school? Something about the lack of blog posts was kind of a giveaway, huh? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, but between teaching and marathon training my life is more than a little crazy. It’s been a roller coaster ride, and it’s not over yet! Without further ado, my 5 things Friday is five tidbits of randomness I’ve been enjoying this week. Enjoy and HAPPY FRIDAY!!
Love this “Google Translate for Runners”
Kristin Armstrong is dead-on, yet again. If you haven’t, you owe it to yourself to read her book Mile Markers.
So, SO true:
And as I’m on the job search, something to remember…
Monday – 4 TM and lift(ish)
Tuesday – 8 miles
Wednesday – off
Thursday – 18 miles
Friday – 4 miles, 8 min abs level 2, and some more abs
Saturday – Winter Tri – 1/2 mile snow shoe (up and down the main ski hill there), 2.78 cross country ski, 1 mile skating –> SO MUCH FUN
Sunday – 8 miles
