WDW Marathon Training - Week 6

Well, it's been another busy week but I'm pretty happy with how the week of training went.  It involved lots of catching up time with friends and family as well as a fun race.  Here are the details.

Monday - Rest day with recovery yoga from Yoga With Adrienne

Tuesday - 45 minute easy run in the morning before work

Wednesday - Strength training

Thursday - Tempo run after work.  It was supposed to be 10 minutes of warming up in zone 2, 20 minutes in zone 3, and a 10 minute cool down in zone 2.  I was a bit crunched for time and only did 32 minutes instead of the full 40 minutes.  The cool down was just a couple minutes but I did get in the full amount of zone 3 running.

Friday - rest day and walking around the expo for the Nationwide Columbus half marathon.  I skipped my scheduled strength training

Saturday- 60 minutes easy in the morning in my parents neighborhood, part of it was a walk with my dad.

Saturday evening we got together for dinner with a whole bunch of old friends.

Sunday - Columbus half marathon - this was a great race!  There was also a 1 mile walk to the start and after the race back to the hotel so 15 miles total with the walking. Full recap to come.

Here's Coach Laura's plan for this upcoming week.

Monday - rest day
Tuesday - 45 minute easy run
Wednesday - strength training
Thursday - 45 minutes to include 20 minutes speed work
Friday - strength training 
Saturday - 60 minute easy run
Sunday - 14 mile long run
