Phoenix Marathon Training Week #10 recap

Phoenix Marathon Week #10 Recap

Wow.  Something different happened with my running this week.  A break through week, I think.  I felt stronger.  My heart rate was considerably lower.  Running felt easier.  Workouts that looked F-bomb worthy on paper, weren’t actually too bad.  As I was doing some of my runs, I actually truly believed that my race goal is achievable.  My workouts this week were just right.


  • Miles Run: 63.8
  • Pilates: twice (yipee!)

The details:

  • M:8.4 miles (9:07) w/ 3 strides; pilates
  • T: 16 miles (8:33) (w/ 35 minutes of MP bursts mixed in)
  • W: 5 miles (9:38) (on treadmill, downhill for 4.25)
  • Th: 8.4 miles (9:18) w/ 3 strides
  • F: 16 miles (7:58) (w/ 5 x 2.5 miles at 7:50, 7:50, 7:50, 7:40, 7:30)
  • Sa: 10 miles (9:37)
  • Su: pilates

A few more hard weeks until taper time!

41 days til race day!
