One month of Berlin marathon training is complete! Three months and two weeks left until race day. This upcoming week is my last week of easy buildup before getting into the meet of my plan and I’m excited / nervous at the same time. I know I can do the hard workouts that are coming my way but I also remember just how hard it was last summer. That said, I’m looking forward to getting fit and putting in the work for Berlin. This is my usual Sunday training recap. Please join in and link up!
Monday: Much needed rest after returning from CA. I was wiped out and started an unfortunate trend of poor sleep that lasted all week.
Tuesday: 5.61 easy miles but it was ridiculously humid. So so gross outside – this run was hard because the weather was terrible. Summer is here and is showing no mercy. Jen and I ran down to the splash park at Navy Yard to attempt to cool ourselves off.
Wednesday: No running…BUT I got to see a cool running related video. Oiselle recently fielded a team to run an unsanctioned 340 mile relay race from LA to Vegas. The team was the first all-female team to register and ended up as the 7th team overall and the 1st female team. Super cool and inspiring and the team hosted a video showing plus talk with some of the participants. It was incredibly inspiring, plus fun to get to hang with Lauren Fleshman again (you might recall that I first met her at bird camp in 2015) and to get to see so many of my Oiselle family.
Thursday: Easy 5k
Friday: 3.25 run commute from home.
Saturday: Back with my Saturday running group. I missed them and was happy to be back. But holy humidity, Batman! It was insane out there. 7 really nasty miles! I also attended a CPR training later in the day. So now you can feel safe hanging with me because if an emergency happens, ya girl is ready! 🙂
Sunday: 4 hot miles to finish the week.
Total mileage for the week: 23.09 miles
Total mileage for this training cycle: 74.33 miles
Total mileage for the year: 582.53 miles
Do you have ridiculously high humidity like we do here in DC? If so, I’m sorry! And Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there!
