I feel like I blinked and now week 5 is over – this was literally the fastest week ever, but I’m not complaining. Onward to week 6!
5 mile tempo run. Well this was harder than I thought. Also my IT band started to get cranky when I picked up the pace so that was no fun 🙁
5 mile “easy” run. Well nothing about this run felt easy (as you can see in the photo, lol). My legs just weren’t having it after Monday’s tempo run.
60-minute boot camp class. Lots of sweaty fun with circuits.
5 mile easy run. This run felt much better than Tuesday’s run, probably because I had a day off from running on Wednesday.
REST DAY!! 🙂
12 mile long run. This was the BEST long run I have had in a while! The weather wasn’t great, but it was the best it has been in several weeks. My mom is currently training for her first half marathon, Rock ‘n’ Roll Philly, so she completed a 10 mile run. We decided to #DabOnThem after our miles 🙂
60 minute HIIT class.
If you follow me on Instagram, I shared my Marathon Training Starter Kit. The one thing missing is KT Tape. I honestly could not get through training without any of these items!
Total Miles – 27 miles
Training Cycle – 110.2 miles
Grade – A
This was a great week (minus Tuesday’s run)! I’m keeping up with all PT exercises and foam rolling twice a day. I also broke the 100 mile mark for number of miles logged during this training cycle – hooray!
If you have any training tips, please let me know in the comments – I welcome any advice!
