I am not going to promise that I will blog every day or even once a week because usually when I promise these things I fail horribly. Instead I will jump right in and pretend like I have been doing this frequently.
Really fast update. Tom Sawyer went well, I ran faster than I had all summer, 1108. I went out in 5:28. I managed to win the race for the second year in a row, which is neat. Then we did hood to coast which was a blast.
This is a picture of the team.
A picture of me after my first leg (it was crazy downhill and I had to take 3 days off after to heal my hamstrings/ glutes).
Some of the team running into the coast after finishing. It was freezing.
This past week was a down week in the marathon training. The goal mileage was 45ish and I only had one real workout. Week in review.
Sunday 11th – Planned Day Off
Monday 12th – 6.6 miles at LARUNCO, would have been a good run but had stomach issues
Tuesday 13th – 7.6 miles with 4 H/ 3E, 3H/2E, 2H/1E, 1H/1W, 2H/ 2W, 3H/ 3E, 4H. I felt good on this fartlek.
Wed 14th – 3 in the am / 5 in the pm
Thursday 15th – 6 miles, ran from home to work. We have kickball early game so I had to get it done. The weather was warm, but breezy.
Friday 16th – Unplanned day off, I played games instead
Saturday 17th – LR, 16 miles, I felt better than I expected to feel. This is my longest run yet.
This week is a much higher goal mileage week 65-70. I plan to try to continue to update.
Until then, check out how awesome this is going to be:
