Today I am linking up with my friend and fellow runner, Meghan, at Little Girl in the Big World for her Weekly Workouts Recap.
I've been toying with the idea of completing a half marathon in 2 weeks. This half would only be for the milage in my marathon training. I'm not looking for a PR. Lately, my longest run had been 6 miles, so I knew if I wanted to try to do the half that I was going to have to up my milage this week and next.
So, here's this week's training recap:
Monday: 4 miles easy on the treadmill
Tuesday: The chart says 6, but I really only ran 5.5. I was feeling so good that morning that I just kept going. I could have gone longer, but it was time for Fred and Eli to start getting up. To date, this was my longest treadmill run ever!
Wednesday: Much needed rest day
Thursday: I ran another 4 miles. This time, I tried one of my Gu packets before the run to see if I could tolerate the taste and how it would work. I must say that I felt energized and it wasn't half bad. I tried the Mint Chocolate one and it wasn't so bad since it was minty and I had just brushed my teeth with a mint toothpaste.
Pure Barre Mile High 2 DVD which was recently named one of the "10 hottest workout DVDs of 2013."
Saturday: I had originally had it on my calendar to complete a 5K, but with the highs only in the 30's and snow flurries, I backed out. I still needed to get in my 8 miles so I toyed with the idea of running outside when the temp got to 38 or going to the gym and running on the treadmill. I chose the treadmill. I knew I could do it and it was mind over matter. The stupid treadmill cut off at 1 hour and I still had one mile left, so I had to make it could. I rant the last mile in 8 minutes flat.
Pure Barre Mile High 1 DVD. Since my training plan says to do strength and stretch. I really hope I can get this in since we have church and then another Sip and See this afternoon.
So, how were your workouts this week?
