Mountains 2 Beach Marathon Training Week 3

Monday 1/14

An “easy” run – 6.1 miles at 8:50 /mile – with my last mile at goal marathon pace. Then I ended with my leg circuit (2×10 weighted front squats, 2×10 single leg deadlifts and 2×10 weighted lunges). Today felt pretty good!

Tuesday 1/15

BEAT YESTERDAY (or in this case, last week). 6 miles; 3 mile warm + 12 hill repeats on a 20% grade hill in the RAIN! Emily joined me again this week and we decided to go for a little more than we did last week.

Wednesday 1/16

Rest day! I was originally thinking about using this day to do a back and biceps workout until my alarm went off and I chose to get an extra hour of sleep instead.

Thursday 1/17

It was pouring outside with some really strong gusts of wind! I decided to take it indoors on the treadmill – 3 mile warm up + arm circuit #1 + 1 mile hard + arm circuit #2 + 1 mile hard + arm circuit #3 + leg circuit. It felt easier to be indoors but it was still a decently hard workout.

Friday 1/18

Flywheel for a third week in a row! Who am I?! Not going to lie, this week was hard. My legs felt dead and I felt like I was on the verge of coming down with a cold. But I managed to come in first place and beat the leaderboard!

Saturday 1/19

13.1 miles at 8:29 /mile – WOW, what happened?! Christine happened (lol). Truthfully, I was nervous about running with Christine and Emily because I didn’t want to slow them down but we ended up with a pretty fun run! Finished with my leg circuit.. killer.

Sunday 1/20

Convinced Cade to do a mile shakeout with me.. aka 2 miles but I just pretended that it was one. Legs felt super heavy but I was glad to get outside.
