Cleveland Marathon Training Week 6

Week 6 training wasn’t too bad still had some pretty tired legs in the beginning of the week but by Friday they felt fine (just in time for my long run). Still not doing so well with the cross training but I am trying. I do the Nike training apps when I can but fitting in time to go to a yoga class or spinning just isn’t working with my work schedule. Why doesn’t anyone pay me to workout and play video games all day yet?

Sunday: 8 mile group run with Kristy, Beal and Ryan. After doing a 5k and 17 miles the day before I was pretty tired but Beal hung with me and pushed me to finish (if he wasn’t there I probably would have started walking after 5 miles)
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: Speedwork, 8-800s @ 3:02, 3:04, 3:02, 3:02, 3:00, 2:58 and 2:56. Plus warm up and cool down=7 miles. Not gonna lie, 800s whoop my butt! and Nike Training App 15 min leg sculptor
Wednesday: 7 Miles
Thursday: 6 Miles and elliptical for 20 mins
Friday: 6 Miles and Nike Training App 15 min Shoulders
Saturday: 15.5 miles on the treadmill. I just couldn’t take the cold and wind this weekend. Trying to avoid getting sick.

Total Mileage: 49.5

Oh so close to 50 miles, had I known I was going to be that close I would have ran an extra .5 any day.

81 days til the CLEVELAND MARATHON!!! Registration fees go up tomorrow (Feb 29) so if you want to save a few bucks don’t forget to register!
