I feel like the last few weeks before Eugene are going to fly by and before I know it I’ll be toeing the start-line. When I ran my first marathon in October, I realized that a great time to take a vacation is right after a marathon. There’s no running allowed, so you can really just enjoy being away and not have to worry about scheduling around your runs. I have not planned a vacation for after Eugene, but I am thinking I should, even if only for a few days. Anyway, this is what I did this week:
Monday: OFF. I did an NTC core workout.
Tuesday: 60′ easy, I ran towards Dallas rd and then back home. I also did an NTC leg workout (which was a mistake because I was super tight for the following days’ run, lesson learned).
Wednesday: Group workout: 30′ easy, 4 x 10′ @ 4:30-35, 3 x 1km @ 4:20, 20′ easy. For some reason the slower intervals felt hard, but the km repeats felt great and I felt that I could have done more.
Thursday: 70′ easy, I did my regular route out to Dallas RD and then home. I also did an NTC Core Strength Workout.
Friday: 30′ easy, I ran to work, not a regular thing, but I knew I was bringing home a bunch of cold-pressed juices to share with my fellow runners the following day!
Saturday: Group workout, 45′ easy, 20’@5:00, 20’@4:50, 15’@4:40, 5′ easy. This was an it challenging by the end, but we worked hard and definitely earned the team brunch we had afterwards. I also did an NTC Abs and Arms workout.
Sunday: 120′ easy, this felt short after last weekends long run, but I have a feeling next Sunday will be our final “long run” and probably 3 hours long.
Total Weekly Mileage: 89.5km
