Workout Windup: Half-Marathon Training Week 5
Hey guys! So sorry I’ve been off the radar the past few days. Things have been crazy busy at work and I’ve been working on some behind-the-scenes stuff for the blog, but I haven’t forgotten about you, I swear! So let’s hop right to it and see how my workouts went for week five of half-marathon training!
- 1 strength workout
- 1 yoga class
- 1 spin session
- Run 27 miles
How I fared:
Monday: Ran 2 miles
I was supposed to do more, but it was one of those days when I couldn’t shake a headache, no matter what I did. Tried to pound out more, but this is as much as my body could take.
Tuesday: Ran 3 miles + SoulCycle Madonna Ride
Laced up my sneaks in the morning to make up the missed miles from Monday, then headed to SoulCycle for my cross-training at night! Amazing class!! Check out the recap I wrote about it for FITNESS here.
Wednesday: Speed Work –> Yasso 800s 4.71 miles
This was my first time doing speed work. I think I did well, and I’m excited to incorporate it into more workouts!
Thursday: Ran 6.5 miles
Saturday: Ran 11 miles
Sunday: Yoga DVD
Miles run (this week): 27
Miles run (total): 96
Strength workouts: 0
Spin classes: 1
Yoga sessions: 1
I met nearly all of my goals this week, but I’m still very happy with my training for the week because I put in all the time on my feet that I needed! It’s race week now, so it’s the final countdown!!
Back to work I go — I have run club again tonight with Lululemon, but pop over later…I’ll be back with a fun giveaway!
