I hope you have a really great Sunday! We are celebrating Brooke’s birthday with my family today (a little late on that one;) and relaxing as much as possible today.
3 weeks and 6 days until the marathon and here is what this last week looked like.
Monday: 12 miles @ 8:26 average
Tuesday: 16 miles total with 3 x 3 mile workout that you can read all the details to here. The 9 miles of that workout were at a 6:20 average and the 15 miles with the group were @ 7:13 average. Did a mile with Brooke when I got home @ 9:40.
Wednesday: 12.09 miles @ 9:04 average. Trails and 1215 ft of elevation gain.
Thursday: 11 miles @ 8:39 average… 3.5 of those miles pushing Skye.
Friday: 9 miles @ 9:13 average… some with Josse some pushing Skye.
Saturday: 20.56 miles @ 7:08 average pace and I finished feeling like I still had a good amount of energy in the tank. 12miles @ 6:35 and another 2 miles on trails at marathon pace effort (slower but hard!). Very happy that this run felt so good because after my last long run and Tuesday’s workout… I was getting nervous!
80.65 miles for the week. It was my highest mileage of this training cycle and now it’s time to back down on mileage while keeping the intensity there for a bit longer. I thought for sure I would have needed to hit 80 with a few doubles throughout the week but it didn’t work out with schedules so I’m happy I was still able to hit it with one run a day.
What was your best run last week? Worst run?
-Best= Saturday. Worst = Tuesday.
What are you having for your Sunday morning breakfast?
