Marathon Training Week 3

Goals for the week:

Total Mileage: 80 - 85

Monday: Easy
Tuesday: Track
Wednesday: easy miles @ 7:20* or slower
Thursday: Tempo run
Friday: easy miles @ 7:20 or slower. 6 x 30 sec @ 5:30 pace with full recovery
12 miles @ 6:25
20 miles @ 6:50

How it played out:

87 miles
8 runs
1 treadmill run, strides at 10 mph due to treadmill limitations

*Note about easy runs, I never run my easy runs at 7:20 (I take "or slower" very seriously), most days they are 7:50-8:20. And occasionally I do as slow as 9:20 if my legs feel really bad and I want to be recovered for the next days hard workout.

You rock in that you typically are meeting and beating your goals. Can probably run Friday the 18th at lunch if you want!

I guess "easy" is all relative. :) They are equally important as the runs that make you want to hurl. LOL.

Thanks so much for your supportive comments on my blog. I appreciate those!
