Week 2 of marathon training is in the books! This was the first week since I can’t remember when that I’ve run 3 days in a row. I survived, but I was happy Friday was rest day. I even got to sleep in until 7:30!
This week went well! I got all my runs in, got some cross training done and several days of weights. I did not get a swim in. I need to get that back in the rotation before I lose progress I’ve made. I got up early 4 times this week, I’m hoping the B12 I’m taking will kick in. I don’t feel as completely worn out as I have been feeling.
I’ve gotten several uses out of my new Yurbuds and they are working like a charm!
Training this week:
Sunday: Rest day
Monday: Gym (cardio and weights)
Tuesday: Run 5 miles, 9:42 pace
Wednesday: Run 3 miles (treadmill) and weights
Thursday: Run 4 miles, 8:57 pace (run/walk intervals)
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: Run 9 miles, 9:31 pace. Nice 66 degrees this morning!
Monday’s gym workout with weights. I went at 6AM, instead of 5AM and it was super crowded!
Tuesday’s 5 mile run. Pace seems to be getting better. Can I actually be getting used to this humidity??
Thursday’s 4 mile speedwork, ie. run/walk intervals in 73 degree weather. It actually felt chilly when we started!
Saturday’s 9 mile run was fabulous.,66 degrees, great splits, this is why I love to run!
Do you run with headphones? What kind?
What about speed work? Love it or hate it?
Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1
