Training for my first marathon is still going well so far. This week’s long run wasn’t that long, I guess to get a break and have some time to recover for the increasing miles ahead. I’m still somewhat following Hal Higdon’s Intermediate Plan with a few tweaks.
Here’s what last week’s workouts looked like:
Monday – Cross training day. I tried 21 Day Fix Extreme, The Fix Challenge for the first time. Oh my, it was a challenge and great workout! There’s 13 moves. You start with the first one and then keep adding one move each time until you get to the end and do all 13 moves. I liked it!Tuesday – Ran 3 miles.
Wednesday – 5 evening miles. Thursday – I did Insanity Cardio Recovery. It’s a great recovery workout with good stretches but not easy. There’s lots of squats and lunges with pulses.
Friday – Ran 6 miles. Saturday – Ran 9 miles.
Here’s a summary of what Hal Higdon’s plan had scheduled and what I did:
|Hal Higdon’s plan||Cross||3 m run||5 m run||3 m run||Rest||6 m pace||9|
|What I did||Cross||3 m run||5 m run||Cross||6 m pace||9||Rest|
How did last week go for you? Any races coming up? I’ll be pacing a half marathon on Saturday. It should be fun. Here’s to a great week ahead!
