Week one of Little Rock Marathon training is in the books. I’m really happy with how the week went. With a little advance planning and bravery, I hit all my planned runs. Well, except adding on 10x100m striders to the end of one run. I didn’t do that because it wasn’t worth risking slipping on an icy patch to get some striders in.
So, here’s the week:
Miles Run: 44.9; Weights: 1 times; Pilates: 3 times.
- M: 8 miles (9:16); pilates (abs, buns & thighs)
- T: 5 miles (9:34)
- W: 3.1 miles (hills on TM); weights; pilates (abs)
- Th: 9 miles (9:20)
- F: 13 miles (8:56; 8 at MP of 8:22-8:37)
- Sa: .75 miles (11:05 blizzard fun run); pilates (abs); lots of shoveling
- Su: 6 miles (10:05)
I also did random core stuff while watching tv throughout the week. The hill workout felt easier than the 3 hilly miles I did on the TM last week. I’m hoping to increase the hill grade and distance a bit each week during training. All in all, the week was a success!
