This week I was suppose to run 30 miles but I ran 27. I missed my 3 mile run on Friday because I had an appointment to get new glasses and went to a Halloween party...Just didn't fit it in. I don't really feel that bad though. All my runs went well this week and I'm excited to have 2 more weeks before I officially start my marathon schedule.
This week I'm going to follow a schedule similar to last week, but just run a 10 mile long run instead of 9. I read in Advanced Marathoning that one of the best things you can do for your leg muscles as a runner is hills. Consequently, I'm gonna make sure I get in one hill workout this week. I'm also gonna drop my lower body workout and add another upperbody workout.
Here's the run down:
Monday: 3 miles + upper body workout
Tuesday: 6 miles (hills or progression run)
Wednesday: 3 miles + upper body workout
Thursday: 6 miles (hills or progression run)
Friday: 2 miles + upper body workout
Saturday: 10 mile long run
Total Miles: 30 miles
For kicks and giggles, here's a Halloween pic of me as Sarah Palin:
I was going for sort of the Tina Fey version. Palin is kind of irritating to me, but I've gotta give the woman some props for being a runner!
