So I am down to less than two weeks remaining before the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon! I have had an occasionally shakey week or shakey run, but overall, I would say that I had a super solid training cycle this go 'round. I cannot wait to see how this all plays out on April 24 in my hometown. I am hoping for a really solid race that will propel me into summer training and the true goal race of 2016... But right now I cannot think about that. I need to focus on the race that is right in front of me.
Monday: 6 miles 8:22 pace CORE
Tuesday: 5.53 miles, 5 at 8:53 pace and 4x30s strides
Wednesday: 40 minutes elliptical. Strength. CORE.
Thursday: 6.67 miles (6 in 49:45 and strides) CORE
Friday: 5 easy miles, 9:09 pace, and CORE
Sunday: 10 miles (5 with the Cincinnati area birdies!) and CORE
I have been working pretty hard on focusing and working to make sure that my easy days (Tuesday and Friday this week), are EASY.
Total miles for the week: 33.2 miles
1 day XT
1 day off
Are you getting closer to your goal race?
