As promised, I’m going to start recapping my marathon training workouts each week. I’ve been building my base for awhile, but last week was the first week of actual “real” training so here we go!
Monday: 4 miles in Rock Creek Park. This was a great run because the park is full of little hills that make it just challenging enough. It was the first time I’d ran in Rock Creek in quite awhile and I really enjoyed it. Sorry the picture is a bit blurry – I’m still learning to point /shoot and run all at the same time 🙂 In fact, I believe I dropped my phone immediately after snapping this. Coordinated, I am NOT 🙂
Tuesday: I did another 4 mile run, this time with a great group of gals from the DC Chapter of Black Girls Run. It was a good, speedy run and while my legs felt a bit heavy, I felt good about the run.
Wednesday: Rest day.
Thursday: Did a speed workout on the treadmill during lunch. More details on this workout later this week.
Friday: Rest day. Spent 8 hours on an amtrak train to Boston.
Saturday: 6.2 beautiful miles around Boston. Plus endless walking as we spent the rest of the day exploring the city.
Sunday: Rest day. Another 8 hours on the Amtrak back home.
Total miles: 18.2 + at least another 5k walking.
How did your training go this past week?
