Training Week March 22 – 28, 2010March 30, 2010 at 5:55 pm | Posted in Boston Marathon 2010, Goals, Marathon training | 1 Comment
This week I backed off of the cross training due to time constraints. Boy, do I feel the difference! When I incorporate biking and swimming into my training, I feel much stronger and less achy. When I add a dash of yoga to the mix, I feel even better! Anyway, my main focus this week was running, not purposefully…it’s just the way life worked!
Here’s what I did:
Monday, March 22 - Easy recovery run 5.25 miles at an 8:40 pace. This run followed a tough weekend consisting of an 8 mile run Friday evening, a 10 mile run and 30 mile bike Saturday, and a 12 mile hill run on Sunday.
Tuesday, March 23 – No time!
Wednesday, March 24 - Hill Repeats. 9 mile run consisting of 8 hill repeats. 1500 yard swim immediately after.
Thursday, March 25 - Fartlek run 7.25 miles
Friday, March 26 - Rest
Saturday, March 27 - Long Run. 20.25 miles with the last 9 at 8:57 pace.
Sunday, March 28 – Easy recovery run – 4.25 miles.
Goals for the week of March 29 – April 4
- Swim and Bike more
- Run less with more emphasis on quality runs
- Get more sleep
- Eat fewer jellybeans!!
