NYC Marathon Training – Week Four

27 Aug

This week was supposed to be a recovery week. I think it was still pretty damn hard….but hey – another week down!!!!

Monday – 6 miles easy, 8:23 pace. Ran during my lunch break at work. Made for a beautiful looking Ali the rest of the day.

Tuesday – 7 miles with tempo, 8:11 pace. 2 mile warm up, 3 mi tempo: 7:19, 6:57, 6:45, 2 mile cool down. Tired morning but a good run overall.

Wednesday – 4 miles easy, pre-TRX run. 9:00 pace. Then did TRX interval training for 50 minutes.

Thursday – 8 miles with mile repeats on the track. 1 mile warm up, 4 x 1 mile repeats: 6:47, 6:28, 6:25, 6:21. 3 mile cool down. Felt great on this run and totally on fire.

Friday – OFF

Saturday – 16 miles, 8:45 pace. Legs were feeling heavy through the run, and the weather was mighty humid.

Sunday – 3.5 miles, easy run and didn’t think about pace.

Total miles for the week: 44.5
