Okay, officially kinda freaking out! It is week 8 and the longest run I’ve done so far is 10 miles. I was supposed to do 14 miles while I was away in Myrtle Beach, but there was no way that was happening with the heat wave and humidity. Someone tell me it’s okay I am not past 10 yet…?!?
Last week’s training was decent. Didn’t run this weekend because I was down the shore for birthday celebrations with friends But despite all this, it’s the first time this year I’ve hit 100 miles in a month! (104 to be exact.)
I plan on getting back on the horse this week. Striving for 35 miles. Here’s last week’s training:
Monday: Off (last day in Myrtle Beach)
Tuesday: 5 miles. Treadmill run with my mom! We did a 1 mile warm up, then hill repeats for 2:20 minutes with 2 minute rest, 1 mile cooldown.
Wednesday: 4.5 outdoor miles. 95 degrees but only 40% humidity which was fine with me after those 85% days in SC! Took it easy.
Thursday: 10 miles. We started outside but as soon as we started I knew it would be too hard. It was hot and humid after rain earlier in the day, and my exercise induced asthma kicked in. We completed 3 miles outdoors then headed inside to finish 7 miles on the treadmill.
Friday: 4 mile recovery run. Reeeallll slow. I hate recovery runs because I always feel SO stiff and sluggish!
TOTAL MILES: 23.5
This upcoming week I’m going to try making my long run 13-15 miles. I’m running a 5K in NYC Thursday night (Anyone else?) and think I’ll go in early to run about 12 miles beforehand. We’ll see.
Are you marathon training? What’s your longest run so far? I feel like I have some catching up to do!
