NYC Marathon Training — Week 11

As much as I enjoy the “freedom” while not marathon training, I really operate best when I have a plan in place. This week and last have played with my head a bit because I’ve had to adjust mileage plans to accommodate my life outside of running, but I think I’m still on track overall.

Day 2, Tuesday, September 8th: 5 miles

I didn’t have the most exciting run in itself, but afterwards I realized I was finally on track again to achieve my mileage goal for 2015!  

You can see how windy it was NOT during my run!
Because sometimes I take random pictures while I’m running.

Workout summary: ran 5.01 miles; avg 10:49/mile; 11:48 / 10:38 / 10:35 / 10:47 / 10:17.

Day 4, Thursday, September 10th: 8 miles

Spent a little time with the moon and Venus!

Workout summary: ran 8.01 miles; avg 11:11/mile; 11:41 / 11:25 / 11:18 / 11:06 / 10:58 / 11:24 / 11:05 / 10:30.

Day 5, Friday, September 11th: 18 miles

It made the most sense for me to get in my long run on Friday morning, and I got it done! I’m thankful for a job that gives me such great flexibility. Although I think I reached a new level of crazy for taking personal time off work to run 18 miles . . .

First run in my newest tank . . . BOOMER SOONER!
As seen on my run part 1
As seen on my run part 2
Dedicated my run to those that can’t run. I hope I was able to send strength to those that needed an extra hug today.

Workout summary: ran 18.02 miles; avg 11:31/mile; 11:44 / 11:10 / 11:19 / 12:04 / 11:07 / 11:01 / 11:37 / 11:22 / 11:18 / 11:42 / 11:32 / 11:38 / 12:06 / 12:05 / 11:49 / 11:32 / 11:21 / 10:51.

Day 7, Sunday, September 13th: 6 miles

I wasn’t exactly sure what today’s mileage held for me, so I set a goal of 5 – 8 miles. I ran 6 miles, so I’m happy. I slept in and it was a bit warm and windy, but thanks to my husband’s encouragement, I got the miles done!

Love my newest Oiselle top and thankful my Garmin didn’t die since I hadn’t charged it all week!

Workout summary: ran 6.01 miles; avg 11:00/mile; 11:26 / 10:46 / 10:48 /10:53 / 11:18 / 10:53.

Ended the week with 37.05 miles!
