Looking back at my marathon plan I really didn’t follow it too well this week. My schedule got a little mixed up and I had to make some last minute changes like taking an unscheduled rest day on Thursday and then running on Friday which I wanted to be my rest day (because I was racing the next day). Sometimes I just can’t control my schedule or the weather but I still make it work. I still got in my speedwork and a long run and those are 2 of the most important things that will help me finish this marathon.
Monday: 4 Miles and 25 mins Elliptical
Tuesday: Speedwork 2 miles @ 7:25 pace, 1 mile @ 7:05 and 2 miles @7:25. Also set the treadmill to incline at 7 and ran uphill for 3 mins. (plus warm up and cool down)=7 miles
Wednesday: 7 miles at 7:25 pace (probably one of the best 7 milers of my life)
Thursday: Unscheduled rest day. Weather (cold rain) and work forced this one.
Friday: 5 miles and 20 mins on elliptical
Saturday: 13 miles total. 2 mile warm up, St.Malachi 5 miler and 6 mile cooldown/PRvictorylap.
Total Mileage: 44
Do you follow a plan? What do you do when you get off schedule?
