A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Right now marathon training blows. I haven’t been getting in the number of runs I would like to each week and my long runs feel pretty crappy. We say we are going to go a certain distance and usually cut off a few miles. This week we cut off 9 miles!!! 15 miles and 6.5 miles are two completely different runs. Our plan was to run the 10 mile loop and then the 5 mile loop on the trail. Well we stopped to get water at 6.5 miles and then just started to walk and didn’t stop. Pretty big fail.
This is my first time actually training for a race. I have done two half marathons and a 25k trail run and for those I just stuck to my regular workout routine – CrossFit, Crush classes, and some running here and there. And I did pretty well on those. Training for something is a lot harder not only physically, but mentally. I like to think that I would be fine just sticking with my normal workouts, but 26 miles is a long way and I don’t think that will be the case. I have one month left so I hopefully something switches and things start to fall in place.
Sunday – rest day/day after wedding
Monday – rest day/travel day
Tuesday – CrossFit WOD
5 x (3 front squats + 1 jerk)
30 double unders
30 KB swings (70/53)
20 calorie row
20 goblet squats
10 box jumps overs (24/20)
10 KB front rack lunges
I worked up to 110 or 115# and finished the WOD with 330 reps using a 45# KB.
Wednesday – Crush workout – total body
Thursday – Soul Cycle
Friday – training run
6.5 miles at 8:01 pace. We were planning on doing 15 that day. We obviously suck at sticking to our training runs.
Saturday – rest day
