Marathon Training Week 7 Re-Cap

I gave a my mini re-cap of my runs Sunday-Thursday in my blog link up with Salt, so I’ll update you on my Friday and Saturday run.

Friday, I stuck to my easy one mile streak run. If you remember from my Streak Re-cap post, I had been sticking to only a mile this week to rest my leg. I definitely feel that with only running a mile and continuing to stretch and ice, that is has done a lot of good.

My training plan had me running 12 miles on Saturday but I decided to do 10 again. I had plans to do two runs, one with my run club and another with some fellow Swirlgear girls (<—re-cap on that soon!). So, I decided to run 6 with my club group and then 4 with my Swirl girls. The 6 miler felt great! I was worried that after not having ran farther than a mile that I’d be a little rusty but I felt good the entire way. Each mile was faster than the previous and I ended up with a 9:34 avg. I am veeery happy with that!

My second run was with my Swirl sisters and we took it easy. I’m glad we did as I didn’t want to push it with my leg. We started the first two miles at a jog and then walked/jogged the last two. It was a great easy run after my previous six miles.

All in all, this week’s total mileage was: 14.8 miles, my lowest mileage to date but I’m glad I took some time to rest.

Next up is a 5K on New Year’s Day. It’ll be on a very similar, almost identical, route as my last 5K where I was thisclose to breaking 25:00 so you know what my goal will be 😉
