Folks, we are less than ONE MONTH AWAY until the Cleveland half marathon!!! Can you believe it? Where has this training season gone?!
Well, I may be still sore today, but I’m pretty pleased with last week’s training – I finally got in a double digit run, the first one in AGES – more than a year, for sure! (last year at this time I was nearly 9 months pregnant!)
I rounded out the week with 30+ miles:
Monday: 6.4 miles. Mondays are usually cross training days, but I was unable to get in a 10k over the weekend like I had wanted to, AND since it was Marathon Monday, I had to get in a run! Even if it was on the treadmill.
Tuesday: 4.8 miles. I only was able to get in 1.5 miles in the morning before FW woke up screaming and I had to feed him, soothe him, etc. He didn’t get back to sleep so I didn’t have time to finish any more, but I did manage to get in 3.3 miles later in the afternoon.
Wednesday: 5.3 miles. I had 8×400 on the schedule, which I did on the treadmill with my 400s at 7.7 mph pace. And I finished with a cool down.
Thursday: 3.75 miles. 3 miles running and then a cool down.
Friday: None – rest day!
Saturday: 10 miles outside with Mary! B was out of town, so I was unsure if I was going to get in a run, but FW’s grandpa was able to watch him while Mary and I got out. I’m so glad we did it – 10 miles with a partner is SO much better than solo!
And that was it for the week – 30ish miles!
Some questions for you:
- Did you get in a double digit run? How often do you double digit runs?
- Do you love Marathon Monday as much as I do? I LOVE LOVE LOVE Boston Marathon watching!
