Marathon Monday: Week 16

Well, last week was a doozy. Starting the previous Friday I had just been feeling off and it lasted all of last week. It’s hard to explain, but I just felt really tired and achy. I ended up taking a couple of extra rest days and even today I still don’t feel 100% (however, yesterday was my long run so that could explain today’s fatigue).

This week is going to be a busy one so I’m going to take my training plan with a grain of salt. The most important thing is to hit my scheduled runs while strength training (while definitely helpful) can be missed.

Last week:

Monday: Strength Training (arms) + 7x800m Speed Training
Tuesday: 8.5K Recovery Run
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Rest
Friday: 5K Tempo Run
Saturday: Strength Training (arms + core) + 30min Cycle
Sunday: 26.5K Long Run

Total Mileage: 45.6K

This week:

Monday: Strength Training (arms + core) + Benchmark Run
Tuesday: 8.5K Recovery Run
Wednesday: Strength Training (legs) + StairMaster
Thursday: Strength Training (arms + core) + 30min Cycle
Friday: 21K Long Run
Saturday: Yoga/Rest
Sunday: Strength Training (legs) + 5K Tempo Run

Mileage: 36.5K
