Week 2 of marathon training is in the books. Here’s what last week looked like from Coach Dawn’s plan:
Monday – Plan: 3.5-4 miles easy
5 x 8-10 seconds hill sprints at 9-10% w/2 minute recovery in between each.
1 mile easy
Actual: My watch had me going faster but TM had me at 6.05 miles, avg pace 9:14. Felt ok overall but the last hill sprints were tough.Tuesday- Plan: Easy 20 minutes
6 x 45 seconds hard/2:15 moderate
Easy 15 minutes
Actual: Ran it as planned and it was hard towards the end but felt fine overall.Wednesday – Plan: 4 mile recovery run.
Actual: Ran 4 recovery miles.Thursday – Plan: 4 miles easy
2 miles moderate
Do 4 x strides after 3 miles. You can stop and do a light stretch prior.
1. Pushups – (to fatigue)
2. 10-15 x squats
3. Planks- standard and side (30 seconds- 1min)
4. Lunges – 12
Repeat x 2 no rest + 5 minutes core.
Actual: Had a good progression run. I accidentally did 5 strides since I can’t keep track 😆. I also did the strength circuit and core work.Friday – Plan: Easy 4.
Actual: Ran easy 4 miles.Saturday – Plan: Easy 10-11. Core video or at least 5 min of core.
Actual: Ended up running 10.3 easy miles and did about 5 min of core work.
Sunday – Plan: Rest day.
Actual: Rest day.
Total miles = 36.9 miles. I’d say week 2 of marathon training went well. I ran a good amount of miles and got my workouts done.
As for highlights of the rest of the week:The last day of school for the kiddos was Friday. They’ve grown so much. I can’t believe I’ll have a fifth grader and second grader next year.To celebrate, we watched Incredibles 2. It was a fun movie. My favorite character is Jack Jack 🙂 .
I had to work today but we did celebrate Father’s day and went out for breakfast. Hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s day!
That pretty much wraps up my week. How’d your week go? Any races coming up?
