Week 9 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 8 Recap

I am so glad I was able to get back to normal running this week!  All the snow melted and I was able to return to my normal routine.

Sunday:
I rested

Monday:
I ran 4 miles in 37:53 with an average pace of 9:28 minutes/mile on the super awesome tread mill.

Tuesday:
New Year’s Day.  I ran 5 miles in 49:57 with an average pace of 10:00 minutes/mile.  It felt very good to get outside and run again.  I think I found a winning combo of gear to make these cold runs more bearable.

Wednesday:
I ran 3 miles in 29:32 with an average pace of 9:51 minutes/mile.  I ran this at my parent’s house and good grief I hate running on the HWY to their house.  It is so curvy and scary.  There is no shoulder on the road and everyone drives soooo fast.

Thursday:
I ran 4 miles in 38:21 with an average pace of 9:35 minutes/mile.  I drive into Benton and visited my old gym to knock this one out.  I really did not want to run on HWY 298 again.

Friday:
I spent 60 minutes on my Mother’s elliptical.  That thing is the devil.

Saturday:
I ran an awesome 14 miles in 2:33:25 with an average pace of 10:58 minutes/mile.  I ran in the woods on logging roads.  It was so beautiful and peaceful.  I am a huge fan of trail running now.  I only climbed 843 feet during my trail running, but don’t trail miles count double?
