Training Tuesday: Detroit Marathon week 4
Here we are into week 4 already! This was a super easy, step-back week, so I feel like I haven't worked out much at all. Sunday doesn't show any activity, but I did go shopping with my daughter for a few hours, so I'm sure we covered a mile or so in the mall.
Monday 6-9-14 RUN "easy" 5 miles in 54 minutes (10:51 pace). SWIM 1200 meters. For some bizarre reason, I got it in my head that I would do a bunch of doubles this week since all the runs were easy and short, but sadly, this was the only one.
Tuesday 6-10-14 LIFT 50 minutes.
Wednesday 6-11-14 RUN "easy" 5 miles in 55 minutes (10:56 pace). Super humid after a storm and the run kind of sucked.
Thursday 6-12-14 LIFT 60 minutes. Lifted heavier than Tuesday. Here's hoping the trend continues.
Friday 6-13-14 XT walked about a mile on campus visit number 1 of the weekend. I've also been doing a squat challenge but I'm not logging it.
Saturday 6-14-14 Run "easy" 5 miles in 52 minutes (10:23 pace). The temp was in the 40s. I had a great playlist. I ran much faster than I should have. It's all good though. Then did another 1+ mile walk at campus visit number 2.
Sunday 6-15-14 REST (and retail therapy with my girl).
I need to stop looking ahead at the training plan because it kind of freaks me out a bit. I need to re-arrange a few runs next week because of my trip so I'm looking at a speedwork day very close to this coming weekend's 12 miler. Not sure how that's going to play out. We shall see.
