Chicago Marathon Training Week 2

I’ve been on holiday this week, which although has been ideal for my mental wellbeing, I’m not sure how great the booze heavy evenings are for my marathon training.

When I first sent over my plans for my holiday training to Kerry, he messaged me back saying that I needed to be working a lot harder whilst I was away. Whoops!

Monday – 8 miles before work, accidentally had to do my long run from last week this week after being too fragile to run on Sunday.

Tuesday- Barrecore & 5 mile run with Adidas to get some fun photos at twilight. It was HOT!

Wednesday- Travel day, did not a lot.

Thursday- 5 X 400m @ 5.52 min mile pace on the treadmill. What a mess of a session, my first 400m turned out to be 0.4 of a mile after I misread the treadmill settings. I then fell off the treadmill and threw water all over the man next to me during a rest section- luckily I only bruised my arm and my ego.

Friday – Crazy golf counts as exercise, right?

imageSaturday- Tennis game with friends. My game is improving marginally and Tom and I won our little tournament!

Sunday – 7 miles @ 9 min mile pace, 4 solo miles followed by 3 with my friend Emily. We found a new healthy cafe where we finished our run with smoothies.
