Another Sunday, another marathon training week complete! I can’t believe I just finished week 4 of marathon training. Just 12 weeks stand between me and the race start in Staten Island – oh boy!
6.2 miles for the Fitfam Great Outdoors Challenge Virtual 10K. I had 6 easy miles on the schedule but added the additional .20 🙂
5 mile easy run. While I love the look of these New Balance sneakers, I don’t think they will work for me for distance running. I’m going to keep them for strength training classes because I love the color!
60-minute Boot Camp Class
4 mile easy run. I really did NOT want to run this day but I just put on my headphones and got to work.
7 mile long run. All I can say is THANK GOD this was a cut back week. The heat and humidity is absurd this weekend. It was so bad I took off my shirt and ran in a sports bra (something I said I would NEVER do).
60-minute spinning class. I wish I could fit spinning in more than once a week because I know it helps with my endurance.
Total Miles – 22 miles
Training Cycle – 83.2 miles
Grade – A
This was a pretty good week. I’m doing my foam rolling and PT exercises daily so I think that’s helping with my IT band. It’s still bothering me, but seems to be getting better. Next week I start incorporating tempo runs into my training – oh boy!
If you have any training tips, please let me know in the comments – I welcome any advice!
