Gettysburg Marathon Training : Week 9
Whew, what a week! I definitely had some highs and lows this week but I made it through. I got hit with a stomach bug that's been going around at work, but luckily made up my runs and had a great long run to end the week. I also finished Yoga Revolution, kept up my core routine, and made sure to foam roll every night. I think all these small changes are really helping me stay strong and (knocking on wood) injury free so far.
Here's a look at my week of training:
3.5 miles / 9:57 pace
This was the final day of the Yoga Revolution! I really enjoyed the series and would recommend it to everyone (you can find it on Youtube on Yoga with Adriene's channel). I made my own calendar for February so I can keep going!
I started feeling pretty sick at work, and immediately went to sleep after getting home. I had a speed workout on my plan for the day but decided to skip. I also took the day off of yoga, so the rest felt great.
6 miles / 9:19 pace
I woke up feeling much better, so I luckily got in all six miles that I had on my plan. I felt great after having two days off, so this was a great run!
3.25 miles / 9:13 pace
Since I skipped my speed workout for the week, I decided to do a short one on Friday. I followed a treadmill workout that I found online which was a lot of fun. It was basically 1 minute fast, 2 minutes slow repeating for 30 minutes. This helped the time go by really quickly and I really liked it!
4 miles (untimed)Sarah inviting us to check out the newly opened Southern Tier Brewing on the North Shore. I hurried up and got a few miles in while Dan cleaned up, then we met them for some beers and food. I'm a big fan of Southern Tier and their creative beer varieties, so I'm really excited that they opened a location so nearby! I'll definitely be back again.
16 miles / 9:09 pace
After running, Dan and I met up with my family at Wunderbar in Harmony, where I got crepes with Nutella and strawberries. On the way home, we stopped at Soergal's Orchard for some food (they have an amazing selection of vegan/gluten free items in their organic store behind the main market) and also got glasses of hard cider at their Arsenal Cider store. We played a game of checkers then just chilled out. Perfect afternoon!
Did anyone else get sick this week?
How's your training going?
