This was a cut back week for me, since I had a half-marathon on Saturday. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to run it, but I knew it wouldn’t hurt either way to have a lighter week of workouts and miles. I took out my MGP run, thinking that at least some of my half-marathon miles would be at MGP. And we all know there are plenty of hills in the Baltimore half so that becomes a workout in itself!
Philadelphia Marathon Training Week 9:
Sunday: Rest…literally did nothing all day and it was great:)
Monday: 7.07 miles easy, core work, PM: 75 minutes hot yoga
Tuesday: 7.7 miles with 3 x 2 miles at “fast tempo” pace (about 7:25-7:35). This run was really rough. The humidity returned and I just couldn’t get my legs to move as fast as I wanted them to.
Wednesday: 5.06 miles easy with a couple of hill repeats at the end, strength workout
Thursday: 3.01 miles easy, core work
Total: 36.94 miles
Hopefully a recap of the Baltimore half will be up on Monday!
How did your training go this week?
