NOW it feels like marathon training! Solid week with solid miles and workouts.
Monday: Pretty wiped out from my long run. 8.25 recovery miles.
Tuesday: Still feeling wiped and it was about 100% humidity out, so l just did a regular run of 9.4 miles while LT did her workout.
Wednesday: Keeping my workout train rolling! Hot day but headed out for 3 by 2 miles at tempo pace and nailed it. Total of 10.4 miles.
Thursday: Crunched on time and needed to let the dogs spend some time out of their crates so I hit the spin bike for 45 minutes, prorated 5 miles.
Friday: Recovery 10. Miserably hot. Gotta stop doing my runs at 3 pm.
Saturday: Easy 10. Still hot but new shoes feel great!
Sunday: BAM! 20 miles with 6 miles at marathon pace in the middle (at my current VDOT, that’s 6:57 pace). Felt totally doable. Really psyched to have this done.
Total Miles: 73 miles
I did a lot better on core, stretching and foam rolling this week because we finally got our gym set up. Still need to work on getting over to the UVM gym or MMU more for real lifting. Aiming for about 80 this week so I’ll add in a couple doubles to make that happen.
How was your week of training? Get any great workouts in? Anyone else get new shoes?
