Athens Marathon – Training log Week #6

[Minor freak our ALERT] 

My very first marathon is in 96 days…. Just give me a minute to digest that we are already in double digits and then I’ll happily move on to my post….

– slow breath in and out exercises –

Ok, I am back 🙂 Hi everyone!

Let’s see how marathon training went for me this past week, shall we? Not too shabby if you ask me 😉

Thursday: what I really meant to do was 8×400 RI 2:00, what I actually did was 4×800 RI 2:00. Now don’t ask why, I just realised what I was doing when I was almost done… Well I guess that is one of the downhills of not doing repeats on the track but honestly I don’t mind 😉

Friday: 9.2 miles long run along the river with my running buddy Corey 🙂 I absolutely ❤ this run! It felt perfect!! Can’t wait for longer long runs!

Saturday: had an awesome bootcamp HIIT style class at 1Rebel along with many blogger friends 🙂 It was really cool and I swear I haven’t sweat like that in a long time! Full review on it will be on the blog soon!!

Also after the class, the weather was waaay to nice to pass on a run so i did 5x1000m RI 3:00 mins repeats in the park 🙂

Sunday: now this was not a smart move on my part… I did a slow (and supposedly easy) 7 miles. I STRUGGLED through every single step of those 7 miles… The heat and humidity was awful along with a very wrong state of mind and the fact that I didn’t realize it had been 4 hours since I had breakfast and I didn’t have a snack before my run… Well, we live and learn right?

All and all i am quite happy with how this week ended. It didn’t start off great as you ‘ve probably noticed I didn’t do any exercise what so ever between Monday and Wednesday but kicked into gear on Thursday 😉 I need to work on spacing out my workouts better! So this is my goal for next week 😀

Weekly mileage: 19.70

Total mileage: 100.03

Weekly cross-training session: 1 (plus some cycling)

Let me know how you training is going guys 🙂 Anything in particular you are struggling with? What are you currently training for?

  1. Congrats on making through another marathon training week! It sounds like training is going well for you. I have been avoiding putting any dates and timeframe on my race, but I can’t avoid it now – I’m down to my last page of training. 5 weeks to go! Yikes! I ran 40 miles last week and am scheduled to run 45 this week. Fingers crossed that I make it through them all without (more) injury! That’s my struggle – plagued with hamstring issues. boo!
