9 weeks to JAX marathon
M: Group run, 9.07 mi @ 9:34/mi average
T: Speed day – 9.1 mi total, ran 6 x 4 min @ 7:33 – 7:46/mi pace (was supposed to be 10K pace or thereabouts).
W: Group run again – 9.06 mi @ 9:45/mi average
R: Chill square run with strides, 9 mi @ 9:43/mi average + 20 minutes strength for runners (Matt Wilpers / Peloton) and 10 min core for runners (Becs Gentry / Peloton)
F: Another group run!!!! This was the most social running week ever. I guess the local schedules just aligned! 6.75 mi @ 10:13/mi
S: 20 miles @ 9:19/mi average. I wasn’t really trying to push the pace on this but generally felt good and comfortable. As I reported to Josh upon arriving home, I could have kept going but was also happy to be done!
S: Today – some light strength (barre, maybe some strength for runners with light weights) + yoga for stretching purposes!
TOTAL: 63 mi, strength day x 1 (2 if you count today)
I honestly am enjoying this training so much. Especially now that the weather is slightly more tolerable (it’s still hot/humid by non-FL standards but it’s definitely better than August)
And now to follow all of my Chicago-running friends. I predict some PRs!!!
