Week 7 Marathon Training

Can’t be dissaoppointed or upset from a bad run, we all have them.

As I set out to run the 14 miles today, my body was just not feeling right.  Even with my running partner right next to me.  She was not feeling it either.  As we hit 5 miles, we felt the increasing 12 mph SW wind and the heat from the pavement.  Mile 7.5 we walked briefly as we were feeling exhausted from the now head on breeze and hot sun on our backs.  It was at this time we just wanted to hit double digits.  We did it, 10 miles.  Not the 14 that was supposed to happen but thats OK.

Because when I ran this past weeks 9 miles and  7 miles….I FELT GREAT.  I used to be hard on myself about these bad run, but now I embrace them because they happen.  I still accomplished 10 miles.

So this past week training was

  • Sunday- 9 miles
  • Monday-Rest
  • Tuesday- 4 miles
  • Wednesday- 7 miles
  • Thursday- 4 miles
  • Friday- biking 10 miles
  • Saturday- Rest
  • Sunday- 10

WEEK 8 Training should go something like this:

  • Monday-Rest
  • Tuesday- 4 mile
  • Wednesday-7 miles
  • Thursday- 4 miles
  • Friday- Rest
  • Saturday- Cross Training, biking for me
  • Sunday- 15 miles

So here is to another week of running!
