Happy Sunday! This weak was my peak week and I’m happy to report that I survived! My body feels pretty worn down today but I know that’s because I asked A LOT of my body this week. I’m so happy that I was able to complete every run this week!
5 mile run. My legs appreciated these recover miles after the crazy half marathon from the day before. Also the weather was fantastic – a big contrast from the day before!
I also celebrated #MedalMonday with all my my Five Borough Series medals!
9 mile run. I was dreading this run but knew it had to be done. The run wasn’t that bad and after 4 miles I finally got into the zone.
60 minute body works class. This is a total body workout and I loved it!
6 mile tempo run. This run actually felt pretty good and I felt strong
Rest days are the best days!
20 mile run (my 2nd 20 mile run of this training cycle). I did 5 pre-race miles, then the SoNo Half Marathon (race recap coming on Wednesday), then 2 post race miles. My right quad was very cranky so I did the best I could to keep my long run pace with that issue, plus TONS of rolling hills. It was a tough run for me but I did it and that’s all that counts!
60 minute spinning class. As much as I wanted to stay in bed, I’m so happy I went to the class. My legs felt horrible yesterday but they felt much better after spin class.
Total Miles – 40 miles (wow!)
Training Cycle – 380.65 miles
Grade – A
I think I earned an A this week! This was my highest mileage week, ever! I also completed all of my runs and got in two cross training workouts. I do wish I had added Yoga this week, but I’ll probably do it next week for sure. The 20 miler this week felt harder than my 20 miler from a few weeks ago, but that’s okay. Even though I was tired, I still felt like I could have kept running (slowly) so this gives me more confidence for the marathon.
If you have any training tips, please let me know in the comments – I welcome any advice!
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!
