Portland Marathon Training Week 7 – Workouts Recap (7/27-8/2)

Marathon training is still going well so far. I’m still following a modified Hal Higdon training plan and I’ve been getting the runs I’ve scheduled done so that’s always good. Here’s what last week’s workouts/runs looked like:

Monday – Cross training. I did Focus T25 Gamma Speed 3.0. I had a great sweat session. There’s lot of burpees in this one.Tuesday – Early morning 4 miles.
Wednesday – Ran 5 miles.  Thursday – Rest Day.
Friday – Another Rest Day.

Saturday – The schedule had a half marathon to run so I ran my own half marathon. I woke up in the wee hours to run it. I had to be home before hubby went to work so I started around 4:30 am. I was nervous since it was dark out but it wasn’t too bad.Sunday – Rest Day

My first marathon is just two months away. Things are getting exciting since my long runs will be my longest runs ever. But I’m not sure how I’m going to run my next long run which is 17 miles on Saturday. I will most likely have to split it up and run some outside and the rest on the treadmill since I have to be home before my husband goes to work.

Here’s a summary of what Hal Higdon’s plan had scheduled and what I did:

Mon Tues Wed Thur Fri Sat Sun
Hal Higdon’s plan Cross 4 m run 5 m run 4 m run Rest Rest 13.1
What I did Cross 4 m run 5 m run Rest Rest 13.1 mi Rest

How’d your week go?

Hope you have a runderful rest of the week! 🙂

  1. Great job keeping with it and I love your times! Busting out a sub 2? I am envious! That is my goal here in the next few months.


  2. That’s wonderful dedication to your training plan…splitting your miles between outdoor and treadmill to make sure you get it in! Good for you!! Two months you will so be ready! Have fun getting there!!
