Today is a rest day but I wanted to recap my first week of training. Or so I thought it was my first week of training. Last night I realized I started training 1 week early! Oops…I guess 1 week early is better than 1 week late. I’m actually really happy this happened. Matt and I are going to San Francisco in February and my plan called for a 20-miler that weekend. A 20-miler on vacation is not a good time. But with an extra week of training I can use the added wiggle room to rearrange my longs run so that I’ll only need to do 13-15 miles in San Fran. Sweet 🙂
Week 1 Recap
MON: 5 mi speed work
TUE: 6 mi easy run + 20 min yoga
THU: 30 min yoga
FRI: 6 mi tempo run
SUN: 13 mi long run
A total of 30 miles. Yikes, that’s low for my first week of marathon training! I’m trying to keep in mind that the mantra for this training cycle is quality over quantity.
