It’s funny that as I wrap up the 7th week of my half marathon training, I’m looking ahead to marathon training. It’s a good thing I’m totally an over achiever…
Over the next few weeks I’ll be figuring out what marathon training needs to look like and trying merge it with my half training so I don’t lose all the progress I’ve made over the last few months. Sometimes I still can’t believe I’m doing this but sometimes I still can’t believe I’ve successfully run two 1/2 marathons. The body is an amazing thing!
Speaking of amazing things…seriously amazing training this week. My body was feeling strong. And while Friday was going to be my “rest” day, I needed the mental release of hot yoga and I’m so happy I went. Sometimes active rest is the answer.
75 mins hot yoga
15 mins treadmill speed work
15 mins stairs speed work
6 mile run
Strength – legs & abs
4.5 mile run
Strength – chest/triceps/abs
3 x 500m row
4.6 mile run
Strength – back/biceps/abs
Now, it’s Friday and I’m more than ready for my weekend and time with friends and family. I’ll see y’all on Monday.
