Training for my first marathon is still going well. I got my longest run to date done on Saturday, 18 miles. Given, it was split up a little since I ran some of it outside and then tried to immediately get on the treadmill to get the other 8 in. It’s still 18 miles :P. Also, it’s still a pain to get up early before work to run, but I’ve managed. Here’s what last week looked like:
Friday – Ran 8 morning miles. Saturday – Ran 10 early morning miles. I started a little after 5 am and was home before hubby went to work. Then I quickly hopped on the treadmill to get the last 8 miles in. Netflix is a must for when you’re on the treadmill, lol.
I’m happy to say that the 18 miles went well. I wasn’t dying at the end so that’s good. My legs did feel a little weird coming off the treadmill though.
Sunday – Rest Day. I thought I was going to be really sore, but it was nice that I wasn’t. I think my recovery drink and my compression socks really help.
Here’s a summary of what Hal Higdon’s plan had scheduled and what I did:
Next week, mileage decreases and gives time to let my legs recover for what’s ahead. After next week will be the challenge of 20 miles.
How’d your week go? Training for something? Any races coming up?
