Route 66 Marathon Training Week 4
Posted on August 31, 2015 | By email@example.com | 51 responses
I guess I would say I am back into the swing of things with training after being sick for a while. However, my cough is still lingering and it definitely impacted my race on Saturday (more on that tomorrow). Here is how the rest of the week looked:
Monday: 5 miles easy, hip and core exercises
Tuesday: 5 miles with 3 at MGP
Wednesday: Total body strength workout and stretching/mobility
Thursday: 5 miles easy, hip and core exercises
Saturday: Dreaded Druid Hills 10k plus 1.2 mile warm up
Sunday: 10 miles
Total: 32.4 miles
A slight bump in mileage this week, along with a longer race (so far this year I have only raced 5ks). Spoiler for tomorrow’s post: it didn’t go great, but the good news is I wasn’t really sore for Sunday’s 10 miler.
I have another race next weekend – the Charles St 12- so hopefully that will be a chance to redeem myself.
I feel like I spent the whole weekend running! But I did also get in some time at the pool- I can’t believe labor day is next weekend and the pool will be closing for the season! Where did the summer go?!
How were your workouts last weekend?
Are you ready for fall or are you like me and wishing for a few more weeks of summer?Facebook / Twitter / Instagram Follow
