This week was a little better with my marathon training. I still didn't hit all my workouts, but I'm getting there!
Here's my recap of this past week's training. . .
Monday – On the schedule (OTS): 5
What I did (WID): Nothing. I sat on a bus for about 4 1/2 hours round trip – went to Ft. Benning to make sure my Soldier was all good to go for the course that he's attending. My plan was to take an hour nap after I got home and then go run, but the hour nap turned into 2 hours and then it was time to pick the boys up and get dinner ready.
Tuesday – OTS: Rest or XT
WID: 2.2 miles – I got a few miles from yesterday made up.
Wednesday – OTS: 5
WID: 4.7 – We had a Battalion run and went almost 5 miles at a 9:13 pace! I was worried about my knee at that pace, but it was fine.
Thursday – OTS: 5
WID:None. We had Battalion Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development and then I didn't have time after work, either.
Friday – OTS: Rest or XT (cross train)
WID: Rest – the extra sleep was nice!
Saturday – OTS: 10
WID: 9.8!!! I even hit some hills. My knee was a little achy, but definitely nothing like it was a few weeks ago.
Sunday – OTS: Rest or XT
WID: Rest – again, the extra sleep was nice!
Total miles for the week – Scheduled: 25, Actual: 16.7
Total miles run for this marathon training cycle so far – 34.4 (almost doubled them this week!)
My goal for this upcoming week is to get all of my workouts in. My work schedule looks like I shouldn't have any morning conflicts, so it's just a matter of getting up and getting going.
