Week 5 was another good week of running. My weekday runs went as planned and on schedule which makes me happy. This morning’s long run was a killer thanks to the PiYo workshop I did yesterday afternoon. Adding in the second bridge didn’t help either, but it’s all good now that it’s done.
It’s fitting that is the last day of August and the last day of my first full month of marathon training!
Monday – 3.21 miles
Tuesday – Rest
Wednesday – 6.02 miles
Thursday – 3.19 miles
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Rest / PiYo workshop
Sunday – 12.19 miles
Total for Week 5: 24.61 miles
The weather for our Wednesday morning run was a nice 75 degrees. All summer it’s hovered around 79 or 80 at night, so this was a nice treat. I cannot wait for it to cool off and not be so unbearably humid.
Yesterday, I met up with Caitlyn and we went to a PiYo workshop put on by our friend Kat. It was a great time and a good way to really learn more of the correct postures and breakdown the different segments. However, I knew when I left there that I would be feeling it on my long run this morning. Planks, squats, push-ups and more…. Yes, I definitely felt every single mile in my quads. Also, to make up the extra mile we had to run, we added in the Sand Key Bridge which we have successfully avoided on shorter runs. That bridge is a beast. Needless to say, we were happy to be done. It certainly wasn’t a speedy run, we took many walk breaks, but we got it done! Corinna joined us, which is always a great time.
Once again, hubby ran his furthest ever on the 12 miles this morning. I am constantly amazed at him for running so much with me. So proud of him!
Week 6 is a bit of a step down on the mileage. I still have 3 miles, 6 miles (pace), and 3 miles during the week, but then I just have 9 miles next Sunday.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend!
