Three weeks left until my first marathon!! I can’t believe it’s getting so close. Last week ended with my second 20 miler, which wasn’t continuous but pretty close to it and still a tough one. Overall, another good week. Here’s what I did:
Monday – Cross training day. I did Insanity Max:30 – Max Out Strength. I struggled trying to keep up with all the push-ups since I haven’t been doing much strength training. But it’s true what Shaun T says, “Strength is about the WILL to want it.” Tuesday – Early morning 5 miles.
Wednesday – 8 mile evening run.Thursday – I did Insanity Max Recovery, one of Insanity’s recovery workouts. Still a tough one especially for a recovery workout. Friday – Five early morning miles. I tried out my new headlamp and it worked well. It lit up my path nicely. It also wasn’t too heavy.
Saturday – Paced the Oregon Fall Half Marathon and took a short break and then ran the extra 6.9 miles to get my scheduled 20 miler. I had a great time pacing again. Our 2:10 pace group helped a few people reach PR’s which was awesome! It’s such a great experience. Recap coming soon. The extra 6.9 miles I had to run were tough though. I went back on the race course to get my extra miles and this time I was running alone. I did see runners pass by but after a while there were fewer and fewer people. It was hard because I did not have my headphones with me to listen to music and I usually run with music. It was also getting warmer out. I pretty much just focused on how many miles I had left and got it done. Now it’s taper time!
Sunday – Rest Day.
How’d your week go? Any races coming up?
