|Wasn't feeling too strong this week but I can fake it|
Monday - REST - DID IT
18 miles on Sunday means NO movement at all Monday and I didn't move a muscle. My legs weren't sore at all but they were just tight and tired so I spent most of my evening on the couch and then on the floor doing some stretches.
Tuesday - 5 mile easy run + Element 5 Boot Camp - DID IT
49:00 - 9:48 pace
I set my alarm to run 5 miles in the morning but when it went off at 5:30 it was pitch black..oops, I forgot it was almost fall. So I ran after work with the pup and then high tailed it to boot camp class that consisted of lots of burpees and other things that I can't remember because there were so many burpees!
Wednesday - Personal Trainer - DID IT
It was very unwise to go to a boot camp class the day before my personal trainer but I managed to do most of what Sara threw at me. She brutalized my legs since I told her I didn't have a super super long run that weekend. I did box jumps for the first time and realized that they look easy but they ARE NOT...after the session I could barely walk home my legs were made of jello...in a good way of course :)
Thursday - 6 mile run- DID IT
1:00:00 - 10:00 pace
My legs were really really tired but I'm glad I did this run because I have a feeling it gave me a glimpse into what it might feel like at mile 22 on the marathon.
Friday - 10 mile long run - DID IT
1:40:00 - 10:00 pace
Got the long run out of the way before the holiday weekend and it was nice to only run 10 miles for a long run this week. You know you are marathon training when a 10 mile long run is like a walk in the park
Saturday - REST - DID IT
Went to visit my mom in Eastern Washington and spent the day wine tasting with friends!
Sunday - 5 miles - DID IT + 3 mile hike
48:00 - 9:30 pace
Perfect sunny, but cool morning in E. Washington and I decided to push it a little. Later in the afternoon my friend and I climbed Badger Mountain. It is a 3 mile round trip climb in the desert and we sweat out the glass of wine we had for lunch an hour earlier.
Total Mileage: 26 miles
Total Strength: 2
Total Yoga: none..oops again!
