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)
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!
