I am officially 1/9th completed with marathon training!
Last week’s training was challenging, but great. I am really loving the two short runs and the medium run during the week. It’s especially nice that (at the moment) the short runs are only three miles so I can run a smidgen more than that and feel like a total bad-ass. I may not feel quite as confident when the short runs are 5 miles, but for now, I’m going to bask in the glow of feeling great.
|2||12.31-1.6||3 m run||5 m run||Rest||3 m run||Rest||9||Cross||20|
What I did…
Yesterday’s long run was ROUGH (woof). My nose stopped running just for the run (thank you Running Gods!), and I ran with my training partner and friend, Kristin. That girl is a beast on hills. And, to top it off, the run had two massive hills that were at least 0.25 miles long. They went on for-ev-er.
Next week’s plan:
|3||1.7-1.13||Rest||3 m run||5 m pace||3 m run||Rest||6||Cross||17|
Hal let’s his runners taper a bit before he ramps up the mileage on the long run, so next week looks like it’s going to be a piece of cake.
