Hey there! Today is an exciting day for me because it marks Day 1 of training for the NYC Marathon (!!!) on November 2 (aka 16 weeks away)! For the past few weeks, I’ve been keeping my base miles at around 15/week and getting to crossfit about 3-4 times a week. So for now, my training shouldn’t look too much different than what I’ve been doing lately. But it’s still exciting to think that in 4 short months (pending any disasters) I’ll be lining up on Staten Island to run NYC. So let’s check out what my last non-training week looked like…
Monday 7/7-CrossFit. I had to get my butt to a 6am class, as I was flying out of state for work Monday afternoon. The workout was brutal, especially for 6 o’clock in the morning! It was 4 rounds (each for time) of 500m row, 400m run. I was pretty consistent with 4:31, 4:30, 4:31, 4:29 for the 4 rounds. Tough, but at least it felt good to get my workout out of the way!
Tuesday 7/8- 4 easy miles. Again, I woke up verryyyy early to get this run in. As much as I wanted to explore the area, I didn’t have much time and had to stick to the hotel gym. With only two treadmills and one elliptical, it was pretty tight feeling…especially once I got warmed up and started sweating. 4 miles at 9:50ish pace, done and out of the way for the day!
Wednesday 7/9- CrossFit. Boyfriend came to my box and we did a killer 20min AMRAP (As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible) of 10 burpees, 20 pushups and 40 squats. I completed 5 rounds plus got through 27 squats. This was a sweaty one, folks! Evidence: Thursday 7/10- CrossFit. Coach Tyler made us basically do a workout as a warm-up (10 wall balls, 3 burpees, 9 wall balls, 3 burpees, 8 wall balls, 3 burpees, etc…down to 1 and 3). Then we did a partner WOD for time. I had to get a different buddy than Liz because her friend Kailey (Hi, Kailey!) came in for a drop-in so they partnered up. The workout was 2000m row (500 m increments each) then…3 Rounds of 40 KB swings, 40 burpees, 40 V-ups (10 rep increments each partner) then…1 mile run (400m increments each) My partner and I finished in 35:29
Friday 7/11- Rest
Saturday 7/12- 8 mile long run (10:28 avg pace), with some awesome inspiration along the way:
Sunday 7/13- Rest
And now onto MARATHON TRAINING! Let’s do this!
