Workouts – Last Week Today – December 18

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgI’m in my 12th week of training for the Houston Marathon. Race day is 4 weeks away!! Coral assignments came out this week… things are feeling real!

Summer was back in Houston this week.  Overall I had a great week of running.

Here is how my week played out:

Sunday – 16 mile long run with 3 miles ‘fast’ at miles 12-15.

Monday – 5 miles easy.

Tuesday – Rest.

Wednesday –  8 miles total… 3 x 2 miles fast with 1 mile w/up & c/down. I fretted over this one all day… but I nailed it!  Goal pace was 9:45-9:55, actual was 9:28 and 9:34.

Thursday – Rest.

Friday – Rest.

Saturday – 6 miles easy & basics yoga class.

Total Miles = 35

I’m linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap; and Nicole, Annmarie, Jen, and Michelle for Wild Workout Wednesday.

    Isn’t it crazy how those miles add up? I had so many weeks of 40+miles (while in training for my recent marathon), and it never felt like I had done any “extra” miles while they were happening. I always had to recount (several times) to make sure I was adding the totals correctly LOL

    Great mileage this week, Vicki! You nailed the workout you were worried about Wednesday! Is your longest training run coming up this weekend? I just received my corral assignment for Disney. That always makes it seem very real. Thanks for linking and Happy Holidays!

      Thanks… Yes, I’m on a plan that splits the long run over the weekend, so I will have 8 then 16.
