This week was just a week from hell in my personal life. (Hell being our car being stolen and turning our life upside down). I think the only reason I got my workouts in still was because it was the only normal thing I could still control this week. Running might have been the one thing to keep me sane last week. Although we might want to use sane lightly considering I ran my 18 mile long run on the treadmill! That’s a new treadmill distance PR for me.
Monday: 5 Mile run and 1 hour spin
Tuesday: Speed work on the treadmill 7-800s (6.4 total miles with Warm up and Cool down) and 900 meter swim.
Wednesday: 5 miles in the am.
Thursday: 3 mile run in the am, 2 mile run in the pm.
Friday: 18 treadmill miles and for the first time this training season I didn’t get sick to my stomach after my long run.
Saturday: 5 mile run with speedy Francesca and 900 meter swim
Sunday: 1 hour spin
Total mileage: 44.4
Strength training completely fell off the grid last week but I have plans to do that tonight after my 5 mile run. I hope my body enjoyed the week off from that.
But now let’s get to the fun stuff because I have a GIVEAWAY!!!!!! I have been participating in the Cleveland Marathon since 2008 (well before I had a blog) and it always has a soft spot in my heart.
