Marathon Mon…Tuesday: Week 8

image1 (4)I guess the long weekend got the better of me, because I seemed to lose my Monday. Instead of sitting behind a computer screen I tried to take advantage of the beautiful weather we had for Canada Day, and I spent most of my time outside.

Last week went really well. I managed to fit in all of my workouts and my eating was on point. Last Wednesday I hit a new low weigh-in so I think it made me more conscious of choosing better options and eating proper portions.

Last week:

Monday:  8K Recovery Run 
Tuesday: 
Strength Training (arms) + 6K Recovery Run
Wednesday: 
Rest Day (3-hour Cake Decorating class)
Thursday: 
Rest Day (in the city to meet a friend)
Friday: 
Strength Training (arms, core) + 15min Benchmark Run
Saturday: 
15K Long Run
Sunday:
 Strength training (legs)

Total Mileage: 31.27K

This week I’m hoping to ride last week’s high and hit another perfect week.

Monday: Strength Training (arms) + 5K Recovery Run
Tuesday: Nike Training Club workout + Cycle
Wednesday: Strength Training (legs, core)
Thursday: Strength Training (arms) + 8K Recovery Run
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 16.5K Long Run
Sunday: Cycle

Total Strength Training Days: 3
Approx. Mileage: 29.5K
Rest Days: 1
