26.2 in 8 Weeks
|My Gym: Memorial Park, Houston|
The Houston Marathon will be here before I know it! Here's how I trained for it this week.
Daily Miles: Mon: 12 (7 at MP), Tue: 6 easy, Wed: 10 (9:31/mi. ave.), Thur: 10 (9:25/mi. ave.), Fri: 8 easy, Sat: 10 (6x800: slow/tired). There were no long runs in my plans for this week, but maybe running 10 miles two days in a row made up for it.
Total Miles: 56. For 4 weeks, I've increased my miles about 3 miles per week.
Strength Training: 2 times. I tried something new at Prevention.
Music: While strength training, I enjoyed listening to Enya on Pandora.
Healthy Eating: I made lentils for the first time this week. I cooked them in chicken broth with a sprinkle of Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Simple and good!
What I Wore: It's still shorts weather in Houston (about 50* when I run), but sometimes I wear gloves the first couple of miles.
