Marathon Training: Week 3!

Happy Sunday!  Today marks the completion of week 3 of marathon training for me.  I had to skip some workouts and make some adjustments (which I'm totally fine with), but now I'm excited for my life to be back to normal so I can really focus on training this week!

Let's recap...

Monday: Rest day! I got a solid 7 hours of sleep Sunday night, and it was glorious.

Tuesday: Oops! I was supposed to do 3 miles, but I worked late Monday night and decided to skip my run as I had another 15-hour day ahead of me! :(

Wednesday: I joined Beth, Megan and some other awesome bloggers for a demo class at Dance Motivation Fitness with Lindi Duesenberg! We got some free goodies from Sparkly Soul (my favorite), KIND bars, SoyJoy bars, Runa Tea and Vrou Water.  All in all a fun-filled 50min of dancing and sweating!

Post-dance party!
Thursday: 4-ish mile progression run. My awesome coach Abby helped me adjust this scheduled run for my missed workout Tuesday! Unfortunately my Garmin did not cooperate, so I was guessing paces by body feel.  My legs felt strong and I felt like I was working hard, so I'll count that as a success!

Friday: Rest! 

Saturday: 10 mile solo long run (10:21 average pace).  I ran from my apartment down and across the Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan and back.  The temperature was pretty perfect and I welcomed the on-and-off raindrops.  

Oh QB Bridge, I love and hate you!
Sunday: Revolve Body Ride (45min)- I kept my resistance in check for this class because my legs were a little tired, but Revolve still had me sweating!  Jonathan is always so upbeat and fun and his class is an absolute blast!  

Total weekly mileage: 14

Bring it on, Week 4!!! :)
