This is peak time baby! Get in those miles and bust it out...then try to not go crazy through the taper. I think I will be fine this time because I have so much going on and a wedding the weekend before Chicago so things to keep me occupied!
Another week...how time flies.
Monday - Cross Train - biked 17.6 miles
Tuesday - 6 miles (treadmill since I was at the gym for a class) tempo run 9:08 average and Body Pump + extra glutes and core work
Wednesday - umm I am lazy rest day
Thursday - 3.5 miles w/ 2 x .25 hill repeats in the middle. Plus nice progression! 10:17, 9:23, 9:17, 8:55 (.5) + 45 minute strength/core session - 6 weeks before the marathon I am hoping throwing in some hills helps get me stronger. Better late than never? I'm trying...
Friday - 4.11 miles @ 9:26 - nothing spectacular about this run other than the morning was frickin gorgeous! Oh how I have enjoyed cooler temps the past couple of days.
Saturday - 4 hot steamy miles @ 10:03 late morning beach run. Headed from the city to the beach pretty early but sun was blazing when I finally got out. Splits: 10:15, 10:13, 10:21, 9:24
Sunday - 18 miles planned. 10 finished @ 10:30.
Basically hot and humid and I felt like crap. Dizzy and vision was hazy.
I ran 2 miles and met my friend Faith again and she ran us through a dynamic warmup. We started up again and I felt even worse. I was 10:31, 10:23, 10:59, 10:41, 10:33, 10:36, 10:23, 10:23, 10:14, 10:20
Fingers crossed for some less humid weather for next weeks long run. Officially over it.
I know! Isn't it crazy to think it is really not that far away, scary stuff. I apologized to my boyfriend the other day as I have been crazy paranoid that my old injury will come back.....but I said I apologized in advance as the paranoia will be 10x worse come taper time haha.ReplyDelete
The humidity makes long runs tough doesn't it, I rally struggled yesterday. Everything else seemed to be okay for you though, so as long as you get it all in from here on out, you will be fine :) Lets just hope the weather is good for us!
Hi Marathon runner! Despite the tough training I can sense anticipated excitement in you for Chicago! Bully for you. Have great fun!ReplyDelete
