I made it through Week 1 of marathon training, and also kept my #runstreak alive! If not for that stupid concussion, I’d almost be at 100 days, but since having to restart, yesterday was day 32. I’m good with that :)
Monday was 3.5 miles easy/recovery.
Tuesday was cross-training, but I completely forgot until I had already ran over 1.5 miles. So I ran 1.75 and walked 1.5. Walking counts as CT right?!
Wednesday was speed work. I did 3.25 miles of 1:2 intervals x10.
Thursday was 3.5 miles easy.
Friday was 3.5 miles tempo.
Saturday was my rest day so I only ran 1 mile to keep my streak going.
And Sunday (yesterday) was 8 (long, slow run) miles while watching Doctor Who. I did 4:1 jog/run intervals and felt really good the entire time, with the exception of a blister that started bothering me around 6.5 miles. But I still felt like I could have kept going :)
I wore the Kinvara 5s Monday-Friday, Newton Fate on Saturday, and Ghost 6 on Sunday. The NB 1400s should be delivered today so (as long as they fit) I’ll probably test them out tomorrow.
And in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve sort of fallen into a blogging slump again. I think the weather here has finally gotten to me. I just don’t feel like doing anything. And of course we have yet another snow storm coming tonight into tomorrow, with temps in the single digits and icy cold winds. I am so over winter already!
