I wasn't really pleased with my training the past week. Yes, I hit most of my goal paces, but I felt tired and mentally wasn't in my training. I shortened a couple runs and slept in a few mornings which meant having to work out or run after work which I'm not a fan of. I think part of it has to do with all this snow we've been getting, it really does start to get to you after awhile!
Monday: 6 mi @ goal marathon pace + 10 sec; lifted total body
Tuesday: 45 min elliptical; stairs & core workout
Wednesday: 6 mi (1 mi warm up, 4 mi tempo @ 7:31 pace, 1 mi cool down)
Thursday: 30 min bike; lifted total body
Friday: 6 mi @ goal marathon pace (8:00); core
Saturday: 14 mi @ 8:23 pace
Sunday: taught 20 min core & taught 50 min spinning
TOTAL: 32 mi
I'm hoping this week will be better for me especially since it'll be my first 40 mi week & first 20 miler since my last marathon training cycle. Unfortunately, I have to be at work at 3:45am on Tuesday & Thursday but should be able to still get in some cross training & lifting both days. Sometimes you have an "off" week and I'm hoping that means this week will be a great one!
