Route 66 Marathon Training – Week 12

24 Oct


Happy Monday! Last week’s training went well.  I even managed to fit in BodyPump twice and CXWORX once. It’s been a while since I felt like I made it to the gym, so it was nice. I neglected to plan properly and have a rest day though, so I’m making that a top priority this week.

Monday – 6 miles easy in the AM – This run felt tough because I had just run the Hershey Half Marathon Relay the day before at a pretty fast pace. I knew I had to get the mileage in though, and if anything, it was good practice running on tired legs.

Tuesday – BodyPump in the AM

Wednesday – 6 miles easy in the AM + CXWORX in the PM

Thursday – BodyPump in the PM

Friday – 4 miles kinda fast in the PM – It was raining horribly in the morning and I HAD to try on my new running shoes before my long run the next day, so I ran in the evening after work. Shockingly I felt a bit speedy despite a pretty hilly route.


Saturday – 16 miles easy – This run was nice, long, and slow. The temperature outside has gotten cooler and cooler so I wore a long sleeved shirt, but I felt perfect once I started moving. Believe it or not, it is the first time I have actually done a long run on a weekend this training cycle, so I soaked up the post race recovery with a nice hot shower and a nap.


Sunday – FIGHT – I took a “kickboxing”-esque class that my friend taught at a different gym. It was really fun and a nice change from the typical routine. I have not gotten in much cardio besides running lately, so it was nice to get some in through a group fitness class.

It’s hard to believe I’m on week TWELVE! Only 4 weeks to go, and only one more “long” run! eek!


In summary… 

Total running miles: 32

Strength workouts: 2

Core workouts : 1

BodyFlow workouts: 0

    I really like the set-up of your blog! I am also a slow runner, so it’s also just nice to read about someone else who keeps powering away.

    I think doing something similar would keep me accountable for my workouts.
