Marathon Training: Week 4

Monday: 3 mile progression run (9:47, 9:22, 9:01) The weather was absolutely perfect for running and I was in heaven, despite the tough workout.  I still need I work on finding my paces and using this darn Garmin!

Tuesday: Crosstrain @ Barry's Bootcamp!  Courtesy of Chobani, I joined a bunch of other blogger/fitness enthusiasts for this kickass workout.  It was half treadmill sprinting (ahhh!) and half lower body strength training.  It killed my legs (in a good way) and we enjoyed delicious Chobani smoothies after class! Yum!

Thumbs up for Bootcamp + CHO!

Wednesday: Rest day! 

Thursday: Easy 3 miles + 4 strides- My legs were still sore from Barry's, I felt super slow and the strides were such a struggle!

Friday: Scheduled rest day....But then I learned of a Whitney Houston tribute class at Revolve with one of my fave instructors, Jason! I totally took it easy on the resistance and just danced my way through class! 

12 mile long run through Summer Streets! I had such a blast running in 3 boroughs and over 2 bridges with Beth, Annie, Bernadette, Nicole, Liz and Allison. 

Sunday: Optional recovery run turned into sleeping in, foam rolling, stretching and playing with this smiley boy:

Total weekly mileage: 18 miles (+ some during sprints at Barry's...)

One month down...3 1/2 left to go!

    Kickass week of training! I'm so proud of you. You are seriously one of my favorite people to long run with. Had so much fun on Saturday with you. And I totally would have given up a recovery run for a date with that delicious little man. Great job this week!
