Greeting Salties! I missed a week, so I thought I move forward and give the highlights of my most recent training week. Boston is about 2 months away, and my mileage is increasing. Last week, I hit 56, and this week, I was just a bit over 58. I am getting more excited about Boston, and we just booked our flights! Here is my latest week:
SuperBowl Sunday: Total of 17.45 on the treadmill. The cold temps and snow made it an easy decision to do the run inside. Got in a total of 14 before my hubby came home with a dog bite after running at the park and being attacked by a dog. He needed 5 stitches and a tetanus shot! Luckily, we were able to get in contact with the dog’s owner and learned he was current with all of his shots. I finished up my remaining 3+ miles just in time to watch the pathetic SuperBowl game. Very disappointing!
Monday: 40 minutes weights. Enjoyed sleeping in!
Tuesday: An upset tummy kept me from any type of workout until the evening when I was able to manage an easy 35 minute run.
Wednesday: Still in the negative temps, so my workout was on the mill. Warm-up of 15 minutes then 7 x 4 minutes running the first 2:30 at or just under marathon pace, then the last 90 seconds at 5K pace. Two minutes rest in between. This workout is harder than it looks on paper, but definitely a confidence booster! I got in a nice shakeout in the evening with some weights.
Thursday: Morning temps of around -12 forced me on the mill for 75 minutes. 45 minutes on the trainer in the evening.
Friday: 30 minute marathon pace workout. Weights/core and 1,000 yd swim in the evening. Finally hit the water after two weeks!
Saturday: A total of 9 with my running group helping to pace. Weights/core in the afternoon before watching the New Balance meet.
Running: 58.1 miles!!
Biking: 45 minutes
Swimming: 1,000 yards
Weight Training: 2hrs 30 min
