Things that are Marathon Training Week 5 Recap
This week was a little busy for me. I had to find time to fit in my runs and other activities.
Monday: Did a 30 minute swim – I think I swam a 700 and was short on time.
Tuesday: Went running in the morning and ran 3.42 miles. The run seemed really hard and I think it had to do with me getting up early and the fact that my legs were really tired and tight.
Wednesday: Soccer for 30 minutes.
Thursday: I was supposed to do a 35 minute tempo run. I miscalculated the amount of time I was giving myself for running the actual tempo and only did a 20 minute tempo. Ran 2.21 miles on the treadmill at the gym in 30:32.
Saturday: Ran 6 miles, along the Provo River Trail (3 miles in, 3 miles back). Surprisingly I ran it faster than marathon pace and faster than what my long runs should be. I did notice that it was downhill out and slight uphill on the way back. I had positive splits even though I was under 12 minute mile each mile. I felt really good and I just felt tight in my hips, knees and IT band.
Total miles for the week: 11.6 miles
