I finished week 6 of marathon training with my longest run ever, 15 miles! Woohoo! Felt pretty good, so I think training is going well. It’s been harder and harder waking up early to run though. I’m getting tired, especially on work days but I’ve managed to get it done. I ended up with 33 miles for the week.
Here’s what I did:
Monday – Cross Training Day. I decided to do P90X3 CVX. I like how this workout incorporates a weight with cardio.
Tuesday – Ran an early 4 miler. Wednesday – 7 early morning miles before work.
Thursday – Rest Day. Traveled to Seattle.
Friday – Had a nice 7 mile run.
Saturday – 15 early morning miles, my longest run so far! This was actually a pretty hilly run but I felt pretty good throughout. The hills were tough but manageable. Sunday – Rest Day.
On to the weekend update. I went up north past Seattle to visit family. It was nice to get together and just relax at my parent’s place. We went on walks, had some ice cream, and watched some DVDs. The kiddos had fun. It was nice that they spent time with their cousins.
Can you spot the animal? I’m not sure what it was but my husband said it’s a nutria, also known as a river rat.
That was my week of workouts and weekend. How’d your week go?
I’m linking up with Tara from Running ‘n’ Reading for the Weekend Update. Be sure to check out the other blogs. 🙂
