Cleveland Marathon training week 6

It was an up and down week for me training-wise. I have come to some very important decisions this week regarding my training, though, that make me feel better about everything. Being a good mom and wife are my top priorities, however, I find that without my running, I am not as good at either of those so I am constantly trying to find a good balance to keep everyone happy. During my SIXTH week (how did that happen? didn't I just start training?) I didn't have a good balance and lost sight of the important things in life. Luckily, I was reminded of the important things in life (see this post). I'm sure I'll have more on my decisions in another post when I get a minute!

I must be learning something during this round of training. When I hit 40 miles during my training for Air Force Marathon, I was EXHAUSTED. This week, I couldn't believe that I was going to get to 40 miles. Happy surprise!

Week 6 stats:

Monday: 7.2 miles 
Tuesday: 2.8 miles plus strength training
Wednesday: 8.01 miles
Thursday: 3.1 total (1.6 with kids and single jogger, 1.5 miles on treadmill) 
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 16 miles 
Sunday: 3 miles

Total for week 6 of marathon training: 40.12

How's your training so far?

Have a fantastic week training!

  1. Sounds like a great week, Anne! I know that I had a lot of the same struggles last year when I was training for the full Pig. I was injured & trying to fit PT in with training and I was one cranky witch. Something had to give, so I dropped to the half. It wasn't fun anymore and what is the point if it isn't fun? Our families come first and sometimes it is hard to keep sight of that.

    You are doing an amazing job!
