Welcome to my new Monday installment!!
I am excited to be marathon training, there are only 12 more weeks to go :) So here is what "THE ALMIGHTY PLAN" called for. In case your wondering I'm using Hal Higdon's novice 2 program less some of the weeks and modified around my race schedule.
M: Strength - Completed 30 minutes of circuit training from Jillian Michaels NMTZ
T: 3 mile run - I skipped this workout due to my boob scare, ladies please feel your ta-ta's regularly!! Turns out I just have a benign cyst that will go away in 2-3 months.
W: 6 mile pace - I did a track workout instead doing 6 x 800m splits with 400m recovery with a 400m warmup & cooldown jog for 5 miles overall
T: 3 mile run - I was going to do a 10 mile bike followed by a 3 mile run and was really excited to do it since the weather was finally cool, but had the opportunity to catch a Rattlers game and Jonathon Lucroy (catcher from the Brewers) was doing a rehab start so I couldn't say no. Chalk up another skipped workout for me!
F: Rest - I hopped in the pool for 300yds quick before my brother & sister-in-laws wedding reception out at a local bar but had to call it somewhat early (ended up leaving at 11) to get my but in bed so I can get up nice and early for the race.
S: Fremont Triathlon (1/8 m swim, 11.2 m bike, 2 m run) - **Recap to come soon** I will let you in a secret though...I finished!!
S: 11 mile run - Started about 8pm with Sarah and we ran through downtown Neenah & Menasha. It's definitely a classic night run when you run through the park with only a mile to go and some guys start making animal noises at you. Like I really believe there are monkey's living in WI!!
Overall, it was a good week other than skipping 2 workouts but I am ok with that since I had a loaded weekend. I am really going to try hard to get my runs in the morning otherwise it's run at 8 (provided nothing comes up that night) or in the heat of the evening at 6.
Vacation starts on Friday and I cannot wait...I will have no excuse for missing any workouts and looking forward to de-stressing from work
