Another week of Chicago training has been checked off. Seriously, other than a few issues with some heat and humidity (which is NOTHING like it has been in the past!) training has been going fantastic. I definitely cannot believe how quickly time is going in July. The race is in October, and suddenly that does not feel all that far away. Eeek!
Monday: 7.6 treadmill miles including 4x 30s strides. 8:19 average pace. Core
Tuesday: 50 minutes on the elliptical, body weight strength circuit
Wednesday: 6 mile easy run, 8:56 average pace
Thursday: 8.53 mile run. 6 tempo miles (goal was 7:50 pace. I ran slightly fast). warm up, cool down. and 4x 30s strides. 7:55 average pace. Core.
Saturday: 14 mile progressive. Goal was 5 miles at 8:30, 5 miles at 8:10, 4 miles at 7:55. BOOM. This run was super tough due to the heat as well as the fact that I potentially ate poorly on Friday night. But I hit all my splits, just slightly faster than planned. I guess then we need tconsider it a success, right?
Sunday: One hour walk with Addie and the dog.
36.1 miles run. One elliptical workout. 2 core workouts. One strength workout. And one walk. Overall, I would say I had another pretty successful week, and I am pleased with it. Hard to believe that I have less than three months to go. Eeek!
