Hard to believe another week of marathon training just went by. I know that during the school year the days just fly by but it seems like they go even faster during the summer. Oh, and another month went by and we are halfway through the year. Here is my update for my training.
Week #3, June 23-29
Monday: 6 mile run: 2 miles easy, 2 miles @9:42 pace, 2 miles easy
I did not feel good on Monday so ran instead on Tuesday. Did 2 miles @10:32, 2 miles @9:43, then 2 miles @10:32.
Wednesday: Run 45 mins @ 10:45 pace
Did not run. Now I cannot remember why and I did not even write it in Google calendar for Coach Sara.
Thursday: 1 mile WU, 3 x 1600m @10:03 (1 min RI), 1 mile CD
Tough workout. Ran 1 mile WU @10:42, 2 miles (nonstop) alternating every .5 miles between 9:52 and 10:12, 2 mins RI after 2 miles, 1 mile (nonstop) @ 9:52, 1 mile CD @10:42. I know it wasn’t exactly what Coach asked me to do but I think I did good.
Friday: 45 minutes cross-train
Just took a break today.
Saturday: 7 miles @ 11:00 pace
7 miles @11:04. Good overall but for some reason struggled the last mile. I must have stopped like 4 times in that mile.
Slept in and that felt good.
- Not running related but can’t believe Mexico lost in yesterday’s game. Oh well, USA still has a chance so I look forward to the game tomorrow.
