A good omen for marathon training.Monday: 4 miles on the dreadmill. I managed to wear a complete matching outfit including headband. I can't manage to even wear matching clothes to work. Happy to report that the apocalypse didn't occur.
Tuesday: Cross training and weights. 25 minutes on the bike. Lunges, Leg press, hip strengthening exercises, and planks.
Wednesday: 6 miles Tempo run on the treadmill. I felt pretty good the entire run. Also got my cross training in with some vacuuming.
Thursday: 4 miles on the treadmill. I was pretty busy at work (some areas of my job don't allow food or drink) and didn't realize how poorly hydrated I was until I got on the mill. I was driving the Struggle bus the entire run and had to work too hard for it. Ah, the powers of hydration.
Friday: Rest Day. Went to a going away party for our friends who are moving to Mozambique! Jealous.
Saturday: 10 miles in 63 degree weather (a mere 30 degrees cooler than last week's long run). seriously, 63 degrees in ATL in August. I thought I was dreaming. It was lovely and I finished strong. Funny thing happened at mile 6. A gentleman and I reached a corner at the same time and he paused to let me turn first because I was moving faster (he was walking). I waved to thank him and he promptly gave me a huge thumbs up and called out "Going for the gold! Watching out, the Russians are gaining on you, but I won't let them catch you." I laughed for the entire next mile.
