This past week was week #5 of my marathon plan. I've been using the Hansons Marathon Method, and I'm feeling great! I am quite pleased that I'm following the plan and doing the speed workouts in the plan and I'm really taking it easy for my easy days. I'm looking forward to the next 11 weeks of this plan and to see how I perform at Sugarloaf on May 19th.
Here's a quick look at my week in training:
6 "easy" miles + 20 min of Best Body Bootcamp
Scheduled rest day - so I took an hour to try out cathe's Cardio Leg Blast. Wow! This workout was tough and I was exhausted afterwards. It truly gave me a great workout. If you are looking for a fabulous workout that concentrates on your legs, this is the one for you. I am quite partial to this one as I know adding more strength to my legs will only help me as a runner.
5 miles of intervals on the treadmill at school then 2 miles of cool down waiting for the bus.
7.2 "easy" miles + 20 minutes of Best Body Bootcamp
I decided that for my birthday, I'd run just a little more for the day, but split it into 2 runs. Since I turned 36, I thought 3.6 miles in the morning and 3.6 miles in the afternoon seemed appropriate.
6 tempo miles on the treadmill, 1 mile w/u, then 1 mile c/d waiting for the bus again
6 easy miles + 20 minutes of Best Body Bootcamp
This week's mileage - 34 (with 12 on the schedule for tomorrow morning), bringing my grand total to 46 miles! It's only going to get higher in the next few weeks.
February Mileage - 148 miles.
How's your training going?
