How is it time for a weekly wrap up already? The days seem to fly by, especially so the closer we get to marathon day!
I had a pretty quiet week, hence my lack of posting. Two weeks ago, I blasted everyone with posts almost daily. And this week? Yep... nadda.
Obviously the highlight of my week was my romp through the woods on the Appalachian Trail. Aside from that, I pretty much took it
easy easier in attempt to taper.
2 mile walk
My Monday regular: a quick warm up on the treadmill (this time it was incline walking) before NROLFW 4A. I was pretty tired during this workout and dropped from 3 sets of each workout to 2. I did up the weights though, so maybe that had something to do with it.
2 miles / 24:00 / 13:05 pace
For the first time in a while (er... ever?) I had truly negative splits for this run! It was pretty cold at the start and my legs were in need of a slow warm up mile. After things got cooking', the magic started happening (including an 8:30 final mile!) =)
5 miles / 46:01 / 9:12 pace
Another warm up on the 'mill before NROLFW 4B.
3.15 miles / 29:00 / 9:11 pace
Some outdoorsy fun in Northern Georgia on the A.T. Read more about it here.
(unless you count walking around being a tourist as miles in the bank...?)
I'm a little sore from Friday's hike, so I've been on the foam roller like it's my job. I'm planning on a few short 3 mile runs with Crazy Face this week to shake out the soreness and nerves before heading down to Florida on Friday. I'm also cooking up marathon goals for Sunday and hope to post them soon.
Using one word, tell me about your training last week!
Ok, ok, you can use more than one word ;)
