With 6 weeks left, here's how my training went for 26.2 with Donna. I didn't get in as many workouts as I wanted this week, but I am still getting in the majority of my miles. Sunday's long run was a big confidence booster.
Monday: Rest day after Sunday's long run.
Tuesday: 4 miles easy on the treadmill. I am eager for the gym to get back to normal after the strong influx after New Years.
Wednesday: 3.1 miles on the treadmill with a bit of speed work. Starting to do a better job of pushing on the treadmill. Still seem to run faster outside when I run on feel, but I'll get there.
Thursday: 4.75 mile run commute home. I did not find $20. :(
Saturday: Rest. I did make my first loaf of bread at home! I think it went well. :)
It is now all gone. The crowd liked it.Sunday: 18.7 miles (8:44/mile) on the Silver Comet Trail for #Megsmiles. I needed a break from my usually running routes and all the hills, so I headed out to the Silver Comet Trail. It's a rails to trails path that leads from just north of Atlanta all the way to Alabama. It was a perfect day for a long run and my legs were very thankful for the break from all the climbing.
Perfect weather.I made a huge fueling mistake and didn't realize that I only had 1 Island Boost left in the house and I used it at mile 5. I tried a new fuel that I had hanging around for future Fuelin' Up Friday posts, but I just couldn't stomach it. Luckily I had decided last minute to run with Tailwind in my hydration pack and it saved me so I didn't have to run the last 13+ miles without fuel. Rookie Mistake (am still allowed to use this excuse?). I will be heading over to REI this week to restock.
Huge hawk I saw during my run. He was definitely eyeing me.How did your week go? Any races or big runs? Did you run #Megsmiles?
