or should I title it "non-Boston Marathon Training"?
Last week wasn't what I had hoped for. 5 days of running turned into 3 days of running. 36 miles turned into 28 miles. and 2-3 x's of strength training turned into a couple days of doing push ups and 1 day of core work. I wish I had a good reason why last week turned to crap, but I don't. I was lazy and slacked off. I chose sleep over running. I did attend an early morning yoga class that I will be adding to my weekly training/work outs. So that is a plus! I also turned a 14 mile run into a 16 mile trail run. so again, another plus. But still, not anywhere near the mileage I wanted to be at. I will definitely use this coming week to get back on track. No more slacking off!
Here is how last weeks running and training went.
Monday: 4 mile run - treadmill PM at the gym, push ups 4 x 10
Tuesday: core work; modified planks, straight arm planks, side oblique crunches, seated crunches, Russian twists w/ 5lb weight
Wednesday: 8.02 mile run - outside early AM
Thursday: push ups 6 x 10
Friday: yoga class
Saturday: 16 mile trail run - snowy, icy, wet
Sunday: not a thing! hello laziness!!
Total Mileage: 28.02 miles
