I’m so excited for week 2 of linking up with Jen of Marathon Mom for another week of training link-ups!
I’ve just completed week 7 of marathon training and it wasn’t the greatest week in terms of following my training plan (you win some, you lose some, right?).
Here’s what I was supposed to do:
|2.4-2.10||Rest||4 m run||7 m pace||4 m run||Rest||14||Cross||29|
Here’s what actually happened:
Yup, I just straight up didn’t do two workouts. In my (own?) defense, I did complete the mid-week middle run and the long run. This was also the longest I’ve ever ran in my LIFE. I ran smart and started off at a really comfortable 9 min/mi pace. Then, I tried a new fueling/hydration schedule –
My fuel of choice are the Walmart brand of Swedish Fish (real Swedish Fish are also good!) and a mix of half Gatorade/half water. For me, it’s best that I fuel up based on time rather than distance because most of the time, I have no idea how far out I am. While the race map is up and the Gatorade stations are well-marked, C has told me that it’s imperative that I train the way I’m going to run (duh). We’ll see what happens with next week’s 15 miler, right? Right. 🙂 At this point, every week is going to be a new milestone and definitely a new adventure.
How were your workouts this week? Join our party, grab a buton, and tell us (and others) how your training went!
