Workout Recap - Week 37

Sunday, September 10th  9.10 mile run (didn't think running 39 miles for my 39th b-day was smart, so I ran the date instead)

Monday, September 11th – 60 minutes on the stationary bike

Tuesday, September 12th –  5 mile run 

Wednesday, September 13th – 10 mile run

Thursday, September 14th – 5 mile run

Friday, September 15th  Rest Day

Saturday, September 16th – 20 mile run

Well, peak week is here ;) We are into the thick of the training and I am feeling it. My longer long runs are technically scheduled on Sundays and my shorter long runs on Saturdays, but these last few weeks I've had to swap them around due to other things on the calendar. With that said, my 20-miler this week was the strongest one I've had yet. I only walked one hill towards the end of the run, except for when I was taking my fuel. Instead of starting out a 9 minute miles and fading to 11 minute miles (where I would be more run walking), I decided to just try and keep them all around 10 minute miles to begin with and that seemed to work. Although my legs (and body in general) are pretty fatigued come Saturday seeing as I've been on my feet all week at work, I guess I am just training them to run tired... Because, let's be real, going to a Michigan football game the day before your marathon is not going to leave you with well rested legs ;) LET'S GO!

How were your workouts this past week?
