Merry Christmas Eve! Well the time is almost here – Christmas Day is tomorrow! I hope that you are all having a great weekend. I went to the gym this morning, ran a few errands, did some cleaning and cooking, and now I’m sitting down to write this blog! It’s been a busy day, actually a busy week, but I’m looking forward to a fun day tomorrow filled with the 3 Fs – family, friends and food! In case you missed my post earlier this week, I finally selected my spring marathon. I’ll be running the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach on March 18. Training officially starts tomorrow!
This was my last week of pre-marathon training and it went really well!
Kickboxing Class – 45 minutes
Class was awesome as always. I was a hot sweaty mess by the end of it. Earlier that day I went for a nice walk during lunch. I’m going to try to do this twice a week so I can get away from my desk!
10 mile run
I did my long run today because I knew that Saturday would be pretty busy. This was my longest run since early October but it went pretty well.
Boot Camp (60 minutes)
We worked a lot with the benches during class which was different but really good.
4 mile run.
This run was a little bit of a struggle but I got it done!
No workout but I did get my welcome package from Health Warrior. I’m psyched to be a part of the tribe next year as I love their products. They make awesome snacks for me throughout the work day!
6 mile run.
I think everyone in the tri-state area had to move their run to the treadmill on Saturday. Rain + cold temperatures = horrible running conditions. I didn’t want to risk running in that weather and possibly getting sick before Christmas or slipping on the ice. The treadmill worked just fine for my 6 miles!
Spinning Class – 60 minutes
I decided to wear #allthegreen for a class on Christmas Eve because why not?!
Total Weekly Mileage: 20 miles
I feel like this was a great week of pre-training before the real thing starts tomorrow! I’m super excited to start another training cycle. It’s going to be a shorter training cycle at only 12 weeks, but I feel like I have a good base going into everything. If you have run Shamrock before, or have heard anything about the race, I welcome any feedback!
How was your week? Are you ready for the holiday?
