Another Monday comes our way! 🙂
Today’s post is coming at you a little later than normal. Yesterday I was so tired I didn’t have the energy to sit down and update for Sunday’s run. Yup, I was that tired!
I mentioned on Friday that I’m working towards being a running coach, and one of the requirements is to be certified in first aid, so I spent all weekend in a classroom completing that prerequisite.
You may have even caught a mini-rant of mine on Periscope (@cowgirlruns) on Saturday. If you missed it, you can find past ‘scopes on Katch.me. If you’re around, tune in around 7pm MST tonight while I talk about jobs and dream jobs.
With that, let’s get to it and check out my training this past week.
Marathon Training Recap
- Monday – Rest day 2 after SeaWheeze. I was feeling good, but if I have a scheduled rest day, I’ll take it!
- Tuesday – 5 miles and 10x100m repeats. I felt amazing on this run. Seriously, amazing. Definitely a surprise to feel this good after a race, but I wasn’t going to question it.
- Wednesday – Rest. I may have pushed a tad too hard on Tuesday as my ankle was a bit achey, so I opted for rest instead.
- Thursday – Rest again. Partly due to my ankle being cranky and partly because I got caught in a downpour on my way home and was freezing and did not feel like dealing with a treadmill.
- Friday – 5 fabulous treadmill miles at GoodLife Fitness on my lunch break. I had a bit of a rough start to my Friday and was on the fence about actually going to the gym, but I’m really glad I did. I hit my pace and distance and was thrilled. I was also able to run on my favourite treadmill, the Woodway 4Front. I would love to have one of these in my house!
- Saturday – Rest – first aid.
- Sunday – 6 miles. This was supposed to be my long run, but by body was just not cooperating. I felt totally and completely exhausted after this run.
Total miles: 16 miles.
