Last week was a bit of a blur. I had a handful of work and personal commitments which made for a long week. All that said Week 1 of marathon training is in the books… with only 15 more to go 😉 . This week won’t be any better in the “being around” department as I’m heading to Boston at weeks end, but I’m looking forward to some coolers temps both in DC and in Beantown so trying to fit it all in will at least be more comfortable.
And it goes a little something like this:
Sunday: Personal training w/Jake. I’m up to 90 pound deadlifts and squats. That’s bad ass 🙂 and you can check out my fitness snapshots from last week here.
This was a FABULOUS show! even with terrible traffic to Baltimore and head hitting the pillow at 2 am (gulp).
Tuesday: 3 mile run. 26:40 on the treadmill. I have said before I am not one of those “dreadmill” haters so I will be using this often for my shorter runs during the marathon training cycle to combat the DC humidity.
Thursday: 4 mile run. 38:32 at 7 am!!! Yes, you heard that right. I was off site Wednesday overnight and into early evening Thursday so met up with a colleague for a morning run. I’ll be doing more of those too!
Friday: REST. My body was done after 2 days of non stop work events so I worked from home and tried to relax and let myself catch up on much needed downtime.
Saturday: 30 minutes elliptical and upper body weight training
Sunday: 7 mile run. 1:04:54 on the treadmill. Sunday was brutally HOT so I ended up on the treadmill for my long run of 7 miles. I *think*. I say that because I ran about a mile and a half before my hand accidentally hit the stop button and I had to start over, which I didn’t realize until the treadmill stopped moving (annoyed) and never looked at the time or mileage. However, I was watching the extra time portion of the World Cup so I knew my general timeframe and distance. I ran 5.5 officially to round it out. Oomph!
TOTAL TRAINING MILEAGE: 14 miles
How are your training weeks going if you’re in process? Anything else fun to share? 🙂 Friday Five theme: Friday Favorites!
