Hey guys! Another week as flown by and it’s Sunday again. I swear the weeks just seem to go by faster and faster every week. It maybe because it’s the end of the school year but oh well haha.
Just 4 more weeks until Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth and I can start to feel the excitement building up as my workouts get better and better. All I have to do is get through the rest of the school year and then bam marathon time!
May 19th- May 25th
Total Mileage: 112
Number of runs: 13
Number of workouts: 3
Monday: 2 mile warm up, 16 x hills w/ jog back down, 2 mile cool down- 350m hill at a 4% grade, great strength building workout to work on my stride power for the marathon :)
Thursday: 2 mile warm up, 6 mile wave tempo, 3 mile cool down- alternated each half mile between marathon pace and 8% faster, to average the normal 4% faster than marathon pace. I love doing wave tempos!
Sunday: 21 mile tempo long run = 5 miles easy, 10 mile tempo at marathon race pace, 6 miles easy- keep feeling stronger every time I do this run! Hit a good negative split this one. I really enjoy this type of long run.
Monday Workout: hill repeats
Thursday Workout: 6 mile wave tempo
Sunday Workout: after my 21 mile tempo long run
I hope that everyone has a great Memorial Weekend!!! I know I have had an awesome start to mine with some fun at the lake with my siblings and cousins on Saturday. I tried kayaking for the first time and loved it! Now to spend my Monday with my friends to start the long studying process for finals :P
Fun at the Lake :)
