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. 😉
