Two weeks left until my first marathon!! It’s taper time. This week’s long run was 12 miles and then next week’s long run will be 8 miles. Last week’s workouts/runs went pretty good. Here’s what I did:
Monday – Cross training day. I did Insanity Max:30 Max Out Cardio. Shaun T. kept mentioning endurance and this one really tests it. I had a great sweat session.Tuesday – Ran 5 early miles before work.
Wednesday – 6 early morning miles before work. I’ve decided not to wear my LifeBeam Hat which is my heart rate monitor when I use my headlamp. The headlamp rests where the monitor is so it’s extra weight and leaves an impression on my forehead. It really started to bug me especially after the five miles on Tuesday. Thursday – I had a good workout with my little guy who joined in a few times. I did Focus T25 – Dynamic Core.
Friday – Ran a nice 4 miler after dropping the little guy to preschool. Saturday – Started my run around 4:45 am and ran 12 miles before hubby had to go to work.
Sunday – Rest Day.
Things seem to be going well training wise. I’ve been sticking to my modified Hal Higdon plan. I took a look at my stats for the year on Smashrun and am amazed at how many miles I’ve ran this year already!! Last year I ran 712 miles for the whole year and I’m at 1001 miles this year! Marathon training will get you the mileage lol. I’m pretty nervous about the marathon being so close. I’ll be so happy to finish and be able to call myself a marathoner. 🙂
How’d your week go? Any races coming up?
