Eek – marathon training starts tomorrow, y’all! The great thing is that I have a build up period – which will be helpful as I acclimate to the DC humidity. Woof. As you may remember, I will still be running (and even doing a couple of races) in between now and when I start training for the Berlin Marathon. But I’ll primarily be focused on cross training and keeping my base level of running up. I’m running a few days a week before training gets going in a couple of weeks. In that spirit, I will continue to enjoy all of your training recaps, so please do keep linking up! This is a low-key link up, but if you participate regularly, link back to this blog. Now on to the maintenance training recap!
Monday: 2.6 mile run commute home. Easy and relaxing at the end of a long work day.
Tuesday: 3.5 easy miles in the morning before work. I realized that marathon training actually starts a week sooner than I thought. Oops!
Wednesday: 6am Pure Barre to celebrate my buddy Jen’s birthday!
Saturday: 7 miles with my Saturday training group. And then, a fitness crawl. 3 studios – barre, pilates and then bootcamp. 30 minutes each. Super fun but pretty exhausting! A great day!
Sunday: Capitol Hill Classic 10k! This is my local 10k – it starts about 6 blocks from my home and we had a number of Oiselle gals running. I paced my friend Jen to a big PR and had a blast!!
Total mileage for the week: 19.71 miles
Total mileage for the year: 490.78 miles
Marathon training is starting y’all! And no…I know that I still need to share what my plans are for this cycle. It’s coming!
Next week the training recap will officially be a Berlin training recap – open to all training for any race, of course. Anyone else starting their marathon training??
