Marathon Training Week 6

Happy 4th of July. Today’s high is a cloudy 92 degrees (awesome) with 22% humidity (not awesome). I’m secretly hoping it’s going to rain today. I love rain and it has been a long time since we had any.

We’re having grilled steaks, baked potatoes and salad for dinner tonight. I’m so excited. I love steak night.

There will also be a few of these.

And of course we’ll be celebrating with a couple of silly kids.

If it weren’t for me writing down my workouts/runs, I would not be able to remember a single one. Last week, came and went quickly. I got in all of my runs except for my long run. When I woke up for my long run at 6:15 am last Sunday, it was just too hot outside. I decided to push it off until Monday.

I’m definitely not in the “honeymoon phase” of my training anymore. I think it is more the heat that is bothering me than being burned out with running.

Monday- Off

Tuesday- ZWOW #23 Burpee Torture My time was 21 minutes.

Wednesday- Negative split run 7 miles (3, 3, 1) in 65:46 minutes

Thursday- Off

Friday- Off

Saturday- Speedwork 3.37 miles in 30 minutes

I didn’t have too much time to get this run in. I ran .5 mile warm up and 4x800’s 4 minutes for each 800’s. I ran 2x400 recovery in between the 800’s.

Sunday- HIIT 24 minutes. Putting off my long run was probably not the best decision.

Week 7 will include at least 2 HIIT, a tempo run, hill repeats and 2 long runs.

Have a great 4th of July.
