Marathon Monday Week 10




Week 10 means 3 more peak weeks of training then taper, how did I get this close? My hamstring was only slightly irritated this week after a long run but mostly my glute was angry and even more upset after intense rolling, ouch! 


Spring was here for a couple days, I even got out in shorts to run once but now we are back to temps in the teens, yuck! April 1st, still snow on the ground, ice on the lakes and wind chills. What the heck?

Monday: Yoga DVD in morning & 1:15 on elliptical
Tuesday: Skipped spin to sleep (pattern?) weights with trainer + east 4.5 mile run 35:30 & 5.5 mile run 50:10 in evening (coaching)
Wednesday: 8.5 mile tempo run 1:02:35 & core
Thursday: Morning Spin, very easy 2 mile run (for TV news story) and weights/core
Friday: Slept in and long clinic day, but had to run with puppy in the sun and shorts (54 degrees) 3 mile easy run
Saturday: 22 mile run (14 with friends + 7 to finish) 3:16:14
Sunday: Very easy 3 mile run/walk recovery with Matt, O and puppy, afternoon weights/core

The joys of spring, puddles! I think I swam 1/4 of my long run!
1st puppy/kid/mommy run of the year with sunshine, great way to start the weekend!
And what's ahead for Week 11 of marathon training? More being smart and staying injury free and this. This is a slight cutback on mileage but increase on intensity as I hope to work more on speed and hills now that I am back. I continue to roll, ice and yoga will be my friend.

Goal: Continue to listen to my body, foam roll, ice and yoga 2-3x this week. SPeed intervals with 1/4-1/2 miles at 6:6:15 pace and 3/4-1 mile at 6:30-6:45 pace

Monday: Yoga & 1 hour elliptical or hills on treadmill (depending on glutes)
Tuesday: Morning Spin, weights with trainer & Easy evening Run (coaching)
Wednesday: Morning Run (Speed Intervals- ladder workout) during preschool
Thursday: Morning Spin & Afternoon run 3-4 miles/weights
Friday: Morning Spin & Yoga
Saturday: Easy run 6-8 miles & Weights
Sunday: Long Run 16-18 Miles

  3. Sounds like you've got a great week of training planned. I am jealous -- I'm 22 weeks pregnant and on some exercise restrictions, so my "training" is limited to spin classes (keeping HR uder 140), prenatal yoga, and some light aerobics/weights stuff in a class at the Y. But I am doing the Color Run with my husband and 3 yr old next weekend, so that's something to look forward to!
