Marathon Weekly Updates
Week 6 meant more morning workouts and much cooler weather. I failed to get in a swim this week and once again slept through Tuesday spin! The week went pretty well and I am extending the time between treatments on my leg which is great news but I am still rethinking Fall goals and what I hope to accomplish. This weekend the temps barely reached about 60, it was perfect for long runs but a big shock to the system after the heat!
Monday: 4.5 mile run 37:01 (including 2 min cool down walk) back to morning workouts!J Had to try out my new shoes on the TM. Core/pilates
Tuesday: Strength with trainer. Evening 6 mile run coaching
Wednesday: Early 5 mile run with hills (42:01) and 2 mile walk to playground/store
Thursday: Morning run/walk to/from playground 7 miles and evening 5K race (21:59)
Friday: Spin class and core/strength
Saturday: 20.3 mile long run (2:48:00) and it felt decent, pain free but I rolled like a crazy woman after!
Sunday: Recovery run 4.7 miles, then 0.3 mile walk while O ran and core/strength. Evening 2 mile walk to store.
Week 7 means almost halfway through and speedwork is still lacking L I will be forced to take 2 complete rest days (Friday and Saturday and an easier Sunday) thanks to a procedure on Friday so the start of the week will be packed with workouts and may even look like I’m overdoing it but I plan to fatigue my body and push hard knowing those rest days are ahead.
Monday: Failed at morning workout L Possibly a swim later and evening run with friends
Tuesday: Spin in am and Strength with trainer. Evening run coaching
Wednesday: Early run (attempting intervals) and Morning walk with mommy friends Yoga with O
Thursday: Morning pilates and Strength and evening run with friends
Friday: Forced rest due to having a procedure done this day
Saturday: Walking at Matt’s triathlon, but forced no “real” workout
Sunday: Run and easy strength if feeling okay. I am considering an inversion yoga class that starts today
As I’m sure anyone reading this blog for a while now has figured out I don’t rest well! How do you deal with forced rest days? I guess I can take my forced days to do some house cleaning and prepare for a late summer garage sale.
