LA Marathon Training – Week #8
Happy New Year! I can feel myself getting faster with each run. My middle of the week mileage will be going up next week. Excited to start ramping up more!
Tuesday – 3 Miles
Weather: 41 degrees
Actual Miles: 3.00
Notes: New Year Day run! Was a bit dehydrated and tired during the run. But overall a good run!
Wednesday – 6 Miles
Weather: 45 degrees
Actual Miles: 6.00
Notes: The perfect weather for a run – sunny and 45 degrees. Legs felt fresh. Time was not too far from my ‘flat’ run last week
Thursday – 3 Miles
Weather: 28 degrees
Actual Miles: 4.00
Notes: Coldest and fastest run, so far! Let felt really good. My schedule had 3, but ended up running 4. Fastest 5k (so far) of my training – 25:52. Surprised at my pace at the end!
Saturday – 13.1 Miles
Weather: 42 degrees
Actual Miles: 13.11
Notes: One of those runs where I really didn’t feel like running. At mile 2 I still wasn’t feeling it. By mile 5 I told myself that I was almost there. Mile 6 – 13 were a blur. I finished strong! My pace was all over the place – not consistent at all. And I did not have any nutrition or water or electrolytes during my run. Luckily my run ended at a Starbucks where I bought a water.
Total Week #8 Miles: 26.11 miles
Total LA Marathon Training Miles: 136.10 miles
