Now that winter is almost over, **knock on wood** I can start breaking out the shorts…or at least this week! I am excited for warmer temps…but I am not excited for hot summer days. For now, I can mix up my morning, lunch, and evening workouts…but pretty soon, I am going to be keeping it to a morning only schedule – once the temps are too warm for getting out later in the day. Am I really thinking about this now?! After a few days of “warmer” temps?! Oh well…a girl can dream!
Marathon Training – Week 8
Sunday- 12.4 miles – long run
Since I had an interesting assortment of workouts on Saturday, none of which included my long run for the week, I decided to use Sunday as my long run day for the week. This means – that I will be having a longer mileage week due to 2 long runs! Let’s see how this goes…
Monday- 2.05 miles – recovery run
I lost track of time at work and didn’t get in a lunch run…more like a late afternoon break. My legs felt surprisingly fresh – especially after my long run the morning before. Then, since the weather was still nice, the little man and I went for a jog/walk in the evening.
Tuesday- 4 miles – recovery run
Took a nice lunch run on the linear trail
Wednesday- 5.5 miles – interval run
I am so glad that the weather has been amazing lately! I was able to get in my interval run over my lunch hour 🙂
Thursday- “rest” day – the warmest day this “winter” and this week; “rest” = “shmest”
4.5 miles – “easy” run
Friday- 5.65 miles – hills run
I have been missing out on my morning runs for a bit now…so I was glad to get out for a mild, morning hills run…I could even wear shorts!
Saturday- 15.3 miles – long run
Well, my long run started early! I planned on getting another mile or so in, but I just wasn’t feeling it! I am glad for the miles that I WAS able to get in today!
Weekly Miles: 52 miles
Weekly Minutes: a lot of minutes 🙂
