Oh my, these weeks are flying by. Thank goodness that I am recording my training progress. It gives me a reason to pause at the end of each week and reflect , retweek and then refocus.
Monday – Planned Rest Day
I did a little 2k shake out run. I was going to go to the gym to do some cross training, but it was so cold outside that I decided to hibernate at home for the evening. Hey, it is a Rest Day after all.
Tuesday – Planned Tempo Session
Temperatures are more friendly but the roads are slushy, unfavorable for a Tempo Run. So I went to the gym and did 4 miles on the Treadmill. To my surprise I enjoyed it. Marathon Training has officially moved indoors. .
Wednesday – Planned Strength Training
Slush has disappeared and been replaced by wet pavement. I took advantage of the mild day ( but windy! ) and did a 20 minute run to warm up for strength training. I need to invest in a resistance band so I can do these exercises at home.
Thursday – Planned 11k relaxed easy running
This was as easy and relaxing as you can get on a windy day.
Friday – Planned Lactate Stackers
Done a treadmill. 8 x 1 minute intervals @ Vo2 Max . Total distance with warm up and cool down 4 miles
Saturday – Planned 7k
Group Run. Finished with 7.77 k in honor of my 777th Consecutive Day of running
Sunday – Planned Circuit Training
Not exactly as planned but great workout.
Summary: This week I feel like I am more mentally focused on my training. Some days the weather didn’t cooperate but I moved it indoors and got ‘er done on the treadmill. To my surprise I enjoyed the indoor runs. I had a couple of fantastic runs on the treadmill.
