I can’t believe it’s already been 6 weeks of marathon training already. Things have been going pretty well so far, I am steadily working on building up my weekly milage and weekend long runs.
I am linking up with Jessie at The Right Fits and Jess Runs ATL to recap last weeks training.
Monday: Complete rest day, I had a lot of work to do and my legs felt thrashed from the weekend anyway.
Tuesday: Quick 2.15 mile run with Cannon, it’s been pretty warm lately so it’s nice to get outside to run with my little sidekick.
Wednesday: Early morning 5.6 mile run, my legs still felt heavy but it was nice to get a slightly longer mid-week run in. In the evening I got in 30 minutes of strength training.
Thursday: 30 minutes climbing workout. Thursday was a busy day at work so all I could fit in was a quick treadmill workout. After a quick warmup I set the treadmill at 15% incline and marched away, this is good training for the hilly marathon I have in April.
Friday: Cory had the day off so I was able to get out for a 7 mile run in the afternoon, without having to push a stroller. I love having Cannon with me for runs, but I live in a hilly neighborhood so it can make running with a jogging stroller challenging. In the evening I also did 40 minutes of strength and core work.
Saturday: Cory, Cannon and I got out for an early run before a busy Saturday. I love when we all get to run together.
Sunday: Sunday (long)run day! It’s been warm and dry here so the Boulder trails opened back up. I headed to the trails early so there would be plenty of time to get to our afternoon swim lessons and kick my feet up to watch the Super Bowl.
Running: 33.3 miles
Strength: 2 sessions
Overall it was a good week, just 10 weeks to go!
Cannon is so cute! He looks like such a happy baby 🙂 Sounds like marathon training is going well… yay!
Thanks Erin!! Cannon is a really happy baby, he especially loves to “talk” to people, no stranger danger (yet) for him =)
Your little running partner is the cutest!
Strong week, happy to hear your marathon training is going well. Thanks for linking up with us too!
I like that climbing workout on the treadmill, I am going to have to try it. 15%- wow!
Your baby is adorable!
Do you live in Boulder Colorado? I’d love to hear more about the area- maybe I should browse through your blog!
My husband just tried the 15% incline workout for only 15 minutes and he said that he was drenched in sweat. I guess it’s a great workout! He said he didn’t “run” this 15% incline, more like a fast walk. Is that what you did too?
Thank Eri! I live just outside of Boulder, it’s really gorgeous here =)
I don’t really run at 15% incline either, I walk as fast as I can and it’s a great workout!
