Another week is complete, which means there is only one big week left until the taper! This was a 50 mile week, ending with a 20 mile run that included 10 miles at marathon goal pace. Rob and I went to DC for the weekend, so we did this run on a trail. It was the perfect change of scenery for completing this tough run! We were struggling through the first 8 miles, and later realized we had gone up a long, steady incline. It made much more sense when we later looked at the elevation map!
But I’ getting ahead of myself- let’s take a look at how the week looked overall.
Monday: 7 mile easy, hip and core exercises
Tuesday: 9 miles with 7 at MGP
Wednesday: strength training, hip and core exercises
Thursday: 7 miles easy
Friday: 7 miles easy
Saturday: 20 miles with 10 total at MGP
Total: 50 miles
I’m at the point where I am trying to take my own advice from those tips for the peak weeks. It’s definitely been all about taking it one day at a time and cutting back on other things! Just a few more weeks to go now!
How were your workouts last week?
Have you ever been on a run where you didn’t realize you were going up a hill but knew it felt harder than it should?
Anyone else looking forward to daylight savings time?
