Marathon Monday: training update #3

It’s a rainy Monday morning here. I got woken up about 5AM to some crazy lightning, thunder and then a hail and rain storm. We need the rain badly, but I can do without the hail hitting the house and cars. Oh, how I love to sleep in on days like this too!

marathon training

Less than 3 weeks until my next half.

10 weeks until the Dallas Marathon!

Training last week:

Sunday: Rest day

Monday: Rest day

Tuesday: Track workout, 3×1 mile repeats, with 800 recovery, 2 mile warm-up, 1 mile cool down

Wednesday: 3 miles and then hit the gym for abs, stretching and the sauna

Thursday: 6 miles

Friday: Rest day

Saturday: Sort of a rest day. My daughter and friends were running a 5k/10k so I got about a mile in, but mostly it was cheering.

Sunday: 17 miles

We had a busy weekend. It was Ally’s birthday. We had her party at a skating rink. Had some delicious cookies and cupcakes. (eeek) They were so good and yes, I had more than my fair share. Sweets don’t tempt me unless they are in front of me. Out of sight is way better for me!

Ally 13th

She took 1st place in her age group in the 5k, with almost a 1 minute PR.

We had great weather this weekend, the mornings are cooler. I love being able to run and breathe. This week the afternoons are going to warm back up, but I think we get to keep our cool mornings.

Did you run this weekend? Anyone race?

Happy running,
