Happy Sunday! I felt like this week flew by!
I just finished week 2 of marathon training and I’m feeling pretty good! I feel like I really nailed this week and even added in some extra stretching and PT exercises.
Last week I had a gait analysis (my last once was 2 years ago) and I was told that I don’t need a stability shoe. Based on this analysis, I’m trying two new pairs of sneakers the next few weeks. I tried out Brooks Ghost 8 sneakers on Thursday for my 4 miler and they felt pretty good. I’ll try the New Balance Vazee Pace this upcoming week. I’m also going to be starting a 30-day plank challenge starting tomorrow!
Now let’s recap the week
4 mile easy run (treadmill) and this counted for my Rock ‘n’ Roll Virtual Run (Guitar Solo). You can still sign up for their remaining 2 virtual races.
5 mile easy run (treadmill) + 30 minutes of Yoga for Runners
Boot Camp (60 minute class)
4 mile easy run (treadmill) + PT/ART
10 mile long run
HIIT Class (60 minutes) + Spinning (45 minutes)
Two weeks down, 14 more to go – BRING IT ON!
Total Miles – 23
Grade – A+
Also if you’re running a race soon, check out Abby’s (my running coach) Facebook page. She posted a great video about how to run tangents so that you don’t end up running extra mileage during a race!
If you have any training tips, please let me know in the comments – I welcome any advice!
