Marathon training starts soon! I received my meeting reminded for Team in Training this morning which got me even more excited!! For now, I don’t have a formal training plan, so I made do with piecing together one from the first couple of weeks of some training plans I’ve found online.
Here’s a recap of what I’ve done so far!
Sunday 5/1: 5.5 mile run
This run started off great: 3.29 in under 30 minutes, which is good for me since I can’t seem to get under 9:30-10:00 miles while I’m running along. Around mile 4.5 I started to get really hot and didn’t have any water so I ran/walked it back to the car in fear that I would pass out. Gonna need to work on that one…
Monday 5/2: Rest
Tuesday 5/3: 43 minutes of strength workouts
I used the Workout Trainer by Skimble app on my iPhone, which was actually really good.
Wednesday 5/4: 3.26 mile run (33:58, 10:25/mile)
Raining, legs in pain from lunge/squat torture yesterday. Not bad overall.
Thursday 5/5: Bike/Stair/Arc at the gym – 1 hour total
I always forget how much I love the gym! It was awesome working out inside (it was raining) and being able to study (finals week :(). I always put off workouts if I have too much work to do, so it’s the perfect solution.
All in all, it’s been a good week for running. I definitely learned from my Sunday run that it is time to invest in a Camelbak or some type of handheld water bottle if I want to run more than 5 miles on a hot day.
Planned workouts for the next week include:
Friday (today!) 6 mile run
Saturday: 3 mile run
Sunday: 1 hour strength exercises
Tuesday: Treadmill speed workout
Wednesday: 30 minutes strength, 30 minutes running
Thursday: 4m run
