New year, new training plan! As I shared in an earlier post, I have started working with a running coach. I am getting back in shape and gearing up for a June marathon – Grandma’s in Duluth, Minnesota. Now that I am back to training, I will share my training recap every other week. Once I am closer to the marathon, I will share my training recap weekly. But until then, here we go! You can always follow my progress daily on Instagram, where I share all my runs.
Week of January 15
Monday – 4.35 miles + core work.
Tuesday – I was in Chicago for work and the streets were snow covered and icy so I hit the treadmill. 5X1000 on the treadmill fueled by Hamilton. It was super hard but got it done.
Wednesday – REST DAY is the BEST day! Always!
Thursday – 4 freezing miles in Chicago + core work. A bit over winter with this one!
Friday – Crazy day – no run.
Saturday – 10 miles – it was cold but not terrible and we got it done!
Sunday – 3 easy miles to end the week.
Weekly mileage total: 26.49
Week of January 22
Monday – Easy 4.2 to kick off Monday. Plus core work.
Tuesday – Things got crazy again so I had to move Tuesday’s workout to Wednesday and then Friday’s workout to Thursday. Not ideal, but the work got done.
Wednesday – This was so hard. 8×400 and then 4×200 – all at paces in the mid 7:xxs. Such a tough workout but I was proud to get it done. 5.4 total.
Thursday – Seven miles – 4 at tempo pace. I was so tired after this run!
Friday – Five easy plus core work.
Saturday – Eight miles on a gorgeous Saturday in DC.
Sunday – Easy mile and a half to close the week.
Weekly mileage total: 31.17
Total mileage for this training cycle: 104.76 miles
Is the weather getting to you this winter? It has definitely been a struggle for me!
