We are in week three of my Marathon training for my first 13.1 run. This will be the longest run in my running history log.
Last week was not a great week of training. My miles were short and I didn’t get in as many workouts as I should. Now that this is a new week and I plan to just hit hard and full throttle. Especially since next week I will be in California for a Women’s Convention. The goal is to hit 14.5 mikes by Saturday.
Here us a look at this weekend training.
Cross train day: Taebo bootcamp peer with the Pt 24/7 bands. This was mostly upper body resistance hitting biceps and delta.
I did a Metabolic Abs 10 workout for my core. I had the urge to do 100 sit-ups but just did the 10 core workout. The ME workout was a burner.
Tuesday: 5:30 am morning 5 mile run on tread.
Here are my splits
I also planned a morning yoga class but my PT appointment overrode this workout . Will see if I can make it up later at LA Fitness this evening.
My strength train for the day will be shoulders and triceps
Front/ side and posterior raises with 10lb 3×12
Bent over flys with 10lbs 3×12
Cable tricep pull-downs 30lbs 3×12 50 dips on the bench/ 30 assisted dips
Skull crushers with bar ( I love these)
2 mile run- I will be using my iSmoothRun App. Looking to improve my time from my last recorded 2 mile run. My hamstrings and hip flexors feel very good and I tell by my pigeon pose stretch that they are lengthening.
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD ADD TO THE REST OF THIS WEEKS PROGRAM? I AM WORKING ON INCREASE MY SPEED OF MY 5K TIME TO 10 MINUTES OR LESS. HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY SPEED?
