I’d say week four of Marathon Training went well. I ended June with 134.5 miles for the month, which is my highest monthly total this year! The Runner’s World Run Streak is drawing to an end tomorrow, July 4th. That will be 36 days of running at least a mile a day. I’ll be going a little over until my next rest day. 🙂 Here’s what my training looked like last week from Coach Dawn‘s plan:):
Monday – Ran 4.01 miles.Tuesday – Fartlek Run. I did 15 minute warm up with strides then 8 X 30 seconds at around 7:30 pace. Then cool down for 15 minutes. It was hard to get the strides in at 7:30 pace in that short amount of time, I ended up going faster most times. Ended up with 5.20 miles.Wednesday – Ran a good 6.01 miles. Plan said to aim for 8:40-9:10 pace. Avg pace 8:50.
Thursday – Ran 7 miles at comfortable pace with some strides around mile 4.5. I also did some running drills afterwards from Dathan Ritzenhein Running drills on YouTube.Friday – Recovery run. 1.01 miles to continue the Run Streak. The kiddos biked while I ran.Saturday – Progression long run. 1:45-2 hr run with the last two miles at steady state pace (8:10-8:30). It seemed warmer out so it was tougher but I felt pretty good throughout. My last two miles were at 8:21 and 8:18 pace.Sunday – Recovery run. 1.01 miles to continue the RWRunStreak.Total Miles = 37.26 miles. That’s a lot of miles for me. I’m looking forward to an easier week of running next week! 🙂
Nothing too exciting happened this week. Here are some pics taken during the week:

How’d your week go? Happy 4th of July!
