Week 5 Marathon Training Plan
First of all, no I didn't fall off the face of the planet... I'm here, and I have a lot of posts to catch up on.
Week 4 Recap:
Monday - 3 - Completed - Walked 1, Bodyworks class for an hour, then ran 3 (last mile at an 8:51 pace which is 5k pace and very difficult for me).
Tuesday - 7 - Completed, but late - Two very sick girls woke up in my house Tuesday. So between doctor visits and fevered baby cuddling... the run didn't happen, so I moved it to Wednesday. First thing Wednesday morning I ran 7 and walked 1.
Wednesday - 4 - Completed, but late - Since Tuesday's workout moved to Wednesday, this moved to Thursday. I got in my 4 miles Thursday morning.
Thursday - 8 - Missed - Since Wednesday shifted to Thursday, this would shift to Friday, BUT the long run is the most important run of the week, and I didn't want to jeopardize my long run by doing an 8-miler the day before. I know some people can, but 8 with 16 the next day is not in my reportoire!
Friday - Off - Completed
Saturday - 16 - Completed - Wow... sweet misery. The day started off with a 5k, where I was pacing a couple of friends. Then I went straight to the lake to finish the long run. I contemplated doing the full 16 at the lake instead of just the 13 I had remaining after the 5k, but my body was clearly having an off day. More details in a future post! But it was done. Total for the day 16.1 miles running, 1.7 miles walking.
Sunday - Off - Completed

As has been the theme lately, this week will be challenged by the fact that it's spring break and I have all the kidlets home AND my mom is flying in early tomorrow morning for a visit!
