Vacation Recap {+ Marathon Training Update #2}

Happy Thursday everyone!

I’m so glad this week is a short week of work for me.  Vacation was nice and relaxing and we were able to spend quite a bit of time outside.  We went canoeing AND kayaking, and I also was able to get a great training run in on Tuesday morning with my brother (5 miles at an 8:27/mile average pace!). 🙂

The weather was really nice the whole time, the pics I took were of course when a cloud decided to cover the sun, but honestly…the weather was beautiful!

I also miss my family very much! Especially my sisters!

Sisters

My youngest sister sent me a snapchat yesterday informing me of how much she misses me. Too cute for words!

Last Week’s Training 

Marathon training last week went extremely well!  I kept up a good pace and actually put in more miles than planned.  I keep a running log and last week was one of my highest mileage weeks since the winter.  I’m feeling good and have no injuries thus far! (fingers crossed!)

  • Monday – Rest
  • Tuesday – 4 miles (last mile consisted of hill sprint repeats)
  • Wednesday – 8 miles (comfortable pace)
  • Thursday – 4 miles
  • Friday – Rest
  • Saturday – 16 miles (long run, easier pace)
  • Sunday – 3 miles (recovery run)

Weekly Mileage- 35 miles

Last week was by far one of the biggest breakthroughs in my marathon training journey because I felt good and increased my mileage without injury.  I was just really tired by the end of the week, but nothing a nap and snack every 2 hours won’t fix. 🙂

That’s all for today folks! I hope the end of your week treats you well.  And as always, don’t forget to like and share my blog with all or your friends.

What are your favorite vacation spots?  Do you run on vacation?
