Week 4 of marathon training went well – I took it easy and didn’t have a long run this week. I’ve looked at many training plans and they usually have an easier week every once in a while and since I’ve increased my weekly mileage for 3 weeks now I thought it’d be probably good for those little legs of mine to have an easier week before I increase the weekend long run to 30km and up (I cannot wait! :)
It drizzled all weekend but since I only did short runs it wasn’t worth taking it to the treadmill. The Mr has managed to bang up one of his knees somehow, probably at Crossfit that he started a few weeks ago… We ran together on Sunday at a bit slower pace, I’m hoping his knee will heal up fast as he does have to amp up his running if he wants to do this marathon thing with me.
My training for last week went like this:
- Monday: Crossfit
- Tuesday: Rest
- Wednesday: 20.08km at 5:33 min/km pace, 1:51:30
- Thursday: Crossfit
- Friday: 6.16km at 4:49 pace, 29:39
- Saturday: 10.25km at 5:02 pace, 51:39
- Sunday: 10.23km at 5:35 pace, 57:10
Total: 46.72km (29 miles)
Did you know that those who “properly” train for marathons run 80-100km a week!?!
P.S. A girl’s only running her 1st marathon once and if you haven’t already – please consider sponsoring me to help out a cool little charity.
