Week 6 of Disney Marathon training is in the books! And a great week it was!
(This is my DailyMile chart.)
I’m still missing my Sunday workout, but I haven’t done it yet and haven’t decided what I’m doing, so I’m not going to put something in there. I ran 21.2 miles this week, so it was a step down week. Next week it s huge step up with 31 miles. I think it may even be my highest mileage.
Here’s how the workouts broke down:
Tuesday’s run was yucky, even though the pace was good.
Wednesday was awesome, but I already wrote about those 6 at MGP.
Thursday’s run didn’t happen, because I had a zillion comments to write, so I moved it to Friday.
Friday was the first time I’ve ever run before work, and my body was so confused. It wasn’t ready to run, and it couldn’t figure out why it was up and running on the treadmill before a long day at work. It was fine, but it wasn’t optimal.
Saturday was amazing in every sense.
Although I was originally planning on running them around 9:45, I just felt fantastic. The weather was beautiful, I was in the zone, and this pace just felt good. It made me wish I had started out a little faster, but it wasn’t my plan.
I ran on the Upper Tampa Bay Trail, which this an 11 mile paved trail a few miles from my house that has cold water every few miles. There were a lot of people out yesterday, and it added motivation. I love seeing runners and bikers training for their respective races. It makes me wish we all wore tops stating what our next races are.
I’ve still got to figure out today’s workout. I’ll probably go ride the bike later to mix it up a little. I’m thinking about ordering the BodyPump DVDs since I’ve been denied at my gym now. We’ll see. It makes cross training so confusing now. What do you do for cross training during marathon or half marathon training?
Week seven isa big week. I’m a little nervous heading into it…
13.1 of those 14 miles will come from my costumed Halloween Halfathon! That I’m excited about. I will post about my goals and expectations on that later in the week.
