Month 1 is DONE! Wow, that flew by guys!
Anyone out there training for a fall marathon with me? Would love to hear how your training is going.
This week was all about DEVELOPING CONSISTENCY.
Here is what my training looked like:
Monday: 2:10 miles/12:29 pace. Tempo run with Paula – I recently started using the Nike Run Club app to track my progress (I was using Strava) and I am loving it! So many guided workouts to choose from. AND they are all geared around the Chicago Marathon, which is what I am currently training for.
Tuesday: 1:02 miles. Morning run on tired legs plus the hills had me headed for home early.
Thursday: 4.01 miles after work, seem to always have a bit more energy later in the day.
Saturday: Off – my husband was working this Saturday so my Long Run had to be pushed back to Sunday.
Sunday: 8.58 miles, 1 hour 46 minutes and 58 seconds! I had an average pace of 12:27 which is what I want to maintain for the marathon.
Total Mileage: 15.71 miles
Fastest Mile: 11:49 minutes
Slowest Mile: 13:28 minutes
Long Run: 8.58 miles
As I wrap up Month 1, I am feeling optimistic, positive and proud of myself for sticking to my training. Not every run went as planned and those hills are crazy hard but I am in this to prove to myself that I still have it in me.
