(This post is going up very late….I got a little lazy with the blog last week…)
Week five was a great week of training for me. I knew I would be going out of town to visit Nicole in California, so a high mileage week might be difficult.
I decided to add in extra miles at the front of my week just in case I couldn’t run in CA.
Monday – 3 miles at 8:45 pace. Very hard run…probably due to dehydration.
Tuesday – 10 miles, 2 warm up, 5 x 1600 repeats: 7:21, 6:41, 6:38, 6:33, 6:37, 3 miles cool down. Good run overall. Ran the repeats in the neighborhood to give me some up and downhill practice.
Wednesday – 4 miles at 8:45 pace. Following the run, went to TRX class.
Thursday – 8 miles at 8:15 pace. This felt really hard. It scares me to think this was much slower than what my marathon pace should be…
Friday – Tried out Nicole’s “Cross Pit” class in California. Loved it!
Saturday – 16 miles at 8:48 pace. Awesome Saturday long run in California with the most amazing scenery along the way!
Sunday – 3.5 mile hike. This was crazy hard at parts. I don’t know how trail runners do it!!
Total Mileage: 44.5 miles.
I took this photo on my 16 miler in Cali. Pismo Beach is so pretty!
