Hey guys! I won’t be around here very much for a bit while we’re in the throes of newborn baby land, but I will keep putting up my Mileage Monday posts as well as a post here and there as I get time and inspiration! I actually have a Day in the Life post ready to go so I’ll slap that up tomorrow or something.
As far as my mileage last week went, I cranked out 73 miles for the week and broken down, looks like this:
Monday– All on the treadmill, the first 5 miles done at an 8 min/mile pace, a break to have some friends over, and then 7 miles in the afternoon, with 3 at 7:40 pace, 2 at 7:30 pace, with 2 cool down miles to make 12 total for the day.
Tuesday– I did 10 miles on the treadmill at an 8:34 min/mile pace while Jesse napped and while Callum was in preschool, and then Andrew and I took Jesse and Callum for stroller rides/runs in the evening sun. We only went 3 miles and we went slow and took lots of walk breaks.
Wednesday– Just an easy little jaunt on the treadmill (10 miles) while Jesse napped and while Callum drew all over the garage floor with chalk.
Thursday– Progression run, trying to fit it in while Callum was at preschool. I ran 3 miles with Jesse in the stroller and then 7 on the treadmill (5 miles at 8 min pace, 2 miles at 7:30 pace) to make 10 for the day.
Friday– Treadmill recovery at 9:13 pace for 8 miles!
Saturday– I got out with Callum in the stroller this morning! I SO needed the fresh air. We only had time for 4 miles, but it was heavenly. I ran a slow 6 miles later on in the day on the treadmill while Jesse napped. Marathon race pace tempo run on tap for tomorrow!
Sunday– SUPER HAPPY about how this went! I pumped a bottle and then headed out for my marathon race pace tempo run. 1 warm-up mile, 7 miles in 6:44, 6:46, 6:48, 6:50, 6:49, 6:46, 6:38 and 2 mile cool down for 10 miles total.
What’s new with you guys? Tell me what’s going on!!!
