Weekly Rundown

Week one of marathon training is in the books!!  If this is the way all my weeks are going to go, then this will be one good training session.  I’ve handled the jump in miles and I’m looking forward to the next coming weeks.  We have a solid plan.



Monday – What started out as a 1 mile day and Body Pump ended up with 5 miles and BP!  I met Christie before class to get 2 miles in, then we took the class.  She still had additional miles to run after class which if anyone who has ever tried to run after a BP class is tough!  I put back on my HR monitor and said let’s go!  I ran the other 3 miles with her and we got it done.  It was tough, but we did really well.

Tuesday – I must love my friends! I planned to run 4 miles, but when Christine and I met up she needed to get in a few more miles for the week, so we ran 6 miles.  We headed by to see our friend, Kay, and snagged a freezy pop at mile 4.5.  It was the perfect run break! tuesdayjuly7

Wednesday – It was hotter than Hades.  The humidity was kicking and the air was so thick.  Going into this run, I knew that it may not go well.  I was right.  It was a run, run, run, run, WALK, run, run, run, WALK.  We just could not find a rhythm at all.  The promise of cold towels, freezy pops and Gatorade made us head to run with Thad’s running group.  We could not pass that up!  We got in 4.25 miles.

Thursday – I met Christie for some early morning miles.  My legs felt good so I pushed for 3 miles and cool downed for the last one.  This run was also day 800 of my run streak!! day800

Friday – One mile rest day!  So excited to only have to run one mile.

Saturday – Christie, Cara and I met to run early.  Christie had more miles than we did so she ran ahead.  Cara and I had a really solid run.  I was so happy with my pace and my avg HR.  I was thrilled that I did not hit my max HR (145) until the very end.  My avg HR was 127 for the 5 miles (@10:28 pace)

Sunday – Based on last February’s training, the second long run day can be a crap shoot when it comes to my HR.  Some days it would cooperate and others not so much.  This was a good day!  I was able to run the entire run until 5.8 miles before my HR monitor registered about 145.  My pace was solid and my avg HR was 119.  119?!  I was stoked! 6 miles @10:43 pacesunday712

Total miles: 31.32

2015 Year to Date Miles: 769.59 on the way to 1500
