It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted a training log. It’s one of those things that has fallen through the cracks as training becomes more intense and work become a little more busy. I’ve successfully logged 60+ miles for 4 consecutive weeks. I’m getting excited for Boston!
Sunday: 21 miler all on pavement except for 2 miles. It was beautiful weather, and I felt great until mile 14. From that point, I just felt off and plodded until I got home. During marathon training, I always have a long run that feels awful and messes with my mental toughness. Hopefully, I got it out of my system.
Monday: The time change really got to me, and I had no desire to get out of bed in the morning! It was a beautiful day to bike to work! I love biking to work and try to when I can. Over lunch, I managed an easy jog to the rec center to lift.
Tuesday: Still could not get up early in the morning! 7.5 miles in the evening consisting of 3×3 mins, 4×1 min, 2×5 mins. Felt good to get in a workout after feeling sluggish.
Wednesday: 10.5 easy miles. Easy swim with some lifting in the evening.
Thursday: Ugh! Could not get up again! 8.5 miles running back/forth to work.
Friday: 9.50 miles including a workout of 2 mins/4mins/2mins/4mins twice. Weights and core later in the day.
Saturday: 75 minutes on the trainer; 7.5 miles in the afternoon.
Running: 67.3 miles!
Biking: 10 miles + 75 minutes
Swimming: 1,850 yards
Weights: >2 hours
