The best week ever.
This week was probably hardest during this entire time training for the Philadelphia Marathon but it was one in whcih I learned more about my body and its amazing abilities.
Monday- I did 5 miles on the elliptical to cross train and a 30 minute crossfit workout. I really worked hard on pull ups but still cannot do a full one.
Tuesday- I got up nice and early at 4:30 am starving haha. I got a banana and headed out for a 6.2 mile run. It felt pretty good.
Wednesday- Just an easy 5 mile run in the morning.
Thursday- I did a tough crossfit workout for 25 minutes, weighted lunges and squats, I was sore for days! Then I finished it off with an easy 4 miles on the elliptical.
Friday- I got my Garmin so I got to test it out on my night run. 6.5 miles in 59 minutes :) It was great, I am already in love with it!!
Saturday- Rest day :) I am learning a lot about these. Learning the importance of them, the necessity of them.
Sunday- Epic 29 mile run. Read the recap here :)
I was exhausted by the end of the night on Sunday but in a good way :)
I managed to rack up a total of 56 miles this week!!!!! It is the highest mileage I have had ever! I learned that my body can do amazing things this week and run a ton of miles. Running for me has become one of the greatest things I can do to keep myself happy and healthy and I really am grateful this week that I am physically able to do it all. I had to mentally push myself harder than I have during this journey and it was worth it. I feel prepared for Philly, I feel ready to achieve my goal.
Oh and I may or may not be considering an ultra in the near future as well ;)
How is your training going?
