Training Week Two

What a great week! I was able to complete all of the mileage for the week and felt absolutely fantastic. I don't know if it's the cooler fall weather, but I felt really strong and powered through all of my runs almost effortlessly. Here's a look at what I did:

9/19: Stretch and some light plyometrics

9/20: 3 mile run: 25:12, 8:23/mile

9/21: 10 minute warm-up at 8:37/mile
15 minutes at 8:04/mile
5 minute cool-down at 8:59/mile
Total of 3.6 miles in 30:00

9/22: 3.12 mile run: 25:47, 8:15/mile
1 hour of strength (push-up intervals, sit up intervals, chest and shoulder exercises)

9/23: REST!
9/24: PSU vs. EMU!

9/25: 7.03 mile run: 57:47, 8:12/mile
100th mile run since July 1st!

I was extremely happy with my workouts this week. Registration for the Pittsburgh Marathon opened today, and I am officially in!! I'm SO pumped and am looking forward to an easy week of training:

To leave with a good quote for the week:
