Well hello there! It feels like it’s been awhile. As usual I’m here to share my training from last week. 11 weeks down and 5 to go…slowly but surely getting there!
Monday: 7.25 miles easy, hip and core exercises
Tuesday: 9 miles with 7 at MGP
Wednesday: Strength training, core and hip exercises
Thursday: 7 miles easy
Friday: 7 miles easy
Saturday: warm up+ 13.1 miles (Baltimore Half-Marathon). Recap to come later this week!
Sunday: Rest and recovery!
Total: 44 miles
This week was a little less intense due to the race on Saturday, but clearly there was no “taper” of any sort before the half-marathon! It was good to run it on tired legs I think, whereas last year I backed off for a few days before the race.
It seems like this weekend was another one filled with lots of PRs! Congrats to everyone who raced. Leave a comment and let us know how it went!
If you use a race as a training run during a longer training cycle, do you back off that week or run the race on tired legs?
How were your workouts last week?
