Well, we’re here, y’all! Berlin Marathon training has begun and I for one, am excited. I shared my plan for this training cycle and my sub-4 goal in this post – check it out if you missed it. This is actually the first time I’ve done the full Hanson plan with the build up as written so I’m looking forward to it. This week was strange though – my legs felt tired on just about every run and over the weekend I was on my feet a bunch at a women’s conference so I had some really long days. Regardless, the runs got done and week one is in the books! Also I wanted to say that I am always in awe of our military and those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice. As a military brat (my dad served, along with many other family members), I know that this weekend in particular can be hard for many folks. I am praying for those who are honoring those who’ve they’ve lost and am praying for those who are currently serving – and their family members. We are all better because of you. God bless, friends!
Monday: Awesome Pure Barre class
Tuesday: 3 miles with the newly formed Whole Foods Run Club. Fun times! I love this early time in training when I can do all the easy and fun runs my heart desires. It makes it easier to buckle down once the workouts come. 🙂
Thursday: 3 easy rainy miles – I really don’t mind running in summer rain at all. As long as there isn’t lightening, I’m good to go!
Saturday: Just over 5 miles with my ARRC ladies.
Sunday: 3.25 miles and the second time I’ve ended a run at Whole Foods this week. I regret nothing.
Total mileage for the week: 14.42 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 14.42 miles
Total mileage for the year: 505.2 miles
Doing anything fun to celebrate the long weekend? I’m sleeping in and relaxing!
