marathon training: week 11 + wknd

So I accidentally read the wrong week in my plan — aka the week before #peaktraining when I get to “cut back” on mileage. So I guess I’ll be going a littttle longer this week. Quick recap:

Monday: Yoga
Tuesday: 4 miles (8:00), strides
Wednesday: 4 miles (8:00), strength training
Thursday: 8 miles (7:45), whiskey
Friday: Rest
Saturday: 20 miles (8:15)
Sunday: 5 miles, strides

Overall I felt good this week. The long run wasn’t so great, and I’m anxious to start feeling better during these runs. My legs usually feel pretty good, but the rest of my body (breathing, stomach, back) always decide to bother me at various points. I also wanted the pace to be faster, but it was windy as f*ck and I took a really hilly route (four bridges plus CP).

In COOLER news, I had a wonderful weekend filled with a shabbat dinner, dinner and wine party with best friends, a sleepover, gluten-free beer making, trip to barnes and noble and Petco (welcome to my life), and lots of music listening + book reading + naps. So THAT’s a reason to smile.
