Phew, it's been a crazy busy week, yet again! I'm officially 2 weeks into marathon training, so let's recap how it went:
Monday: Rest-I planned on doing a short recovery run in the morning, but was out past my bedtime Sunday night and opted for sleep instead! Awesome decision.
Tuesday: 3 miles (1 mile warm-up,1 mile @ 8:50pace, 1 mile cool down)-I'm still adjusting to running with a Garmin to check my pace, and ended up running the 2nd mile at 9:10ish pace.
Thursday: Unplanned rest day. Worked late on Wednesday evening, trying to get sleep when I can!
Friday: 3 easy (with 5x 30 sec pick-ups)-The weather finally broke and this run was luxurious!!!
Saturday: 8 mile long run-Let myself sleep in and started my run around 8am, so it was a little warmer than I'd prefer. I ran along the Queens waterfront to Queens Bridge Park and back. 10:43 pace.
Sunday: Yoga (30min) and lots of foam rolling.
Total weekly mileage: 14
This week was less than ideal for my training. I worked a lot and this tired little RD/temporary waitress had to chose getting some sleep over running. I'm really looking forward to week 3 when I can (hopefully) get back on track!
Stay tuned...How is your training going? How do you manage when you're pressed for time/sleep?!
