Banff Marathon Training - Week 7 PFTW

Last week...

Tues: 2 miles, Lower Body Hiit/Strength - it was 80* and humid, so I thought that'd be a good day to try the treadmills in our new amenity center for this short run. The run was good, but I guess I'm too dumb to use these treadmills because it took me a long time to figure out how to use it, and I still did it "wrong". ¯\_()_/¯
Wed: Core & Hiit. We were scheduled for another ice storm and this is what I picked up as essentials at the store. I can't figure out what the Starlight Coke is, but it's SO GOOD. 
Thrus 3 miles, Upper Body Strength - very, very cold and a little icy. This look is actually very dramatic, and I took off one shirt and that face buff about 5 minutes later. #dramatic. 

Fri: Lower Body Strength
Sat: Day of nothing - I think I took a 2 hour nap, and did nothing else. 
Sun: 8 miles. Drove up to run at Lake Pflugerville, but it was too blustery to run at the reservoir, so we hopped up the road to a more sheltered trail and it was a mix of hot af in the sun, cold af in the wind, and otherwise great. 

Starting this week, I'll be in my "official" training plan for Banff - a modified version of Run Less, Run Faster, with two quality workouts + one long run + 2 days of cross training. I'm accidentally overlapping two weeks of a Fitness Blender workout program, but it's strength based so I'm sure it's fiiiiine. 

This week...
Mon: Total Body Strength
Tues: 4 miles speed (2x1600) + core
Wed: Upper body + hiit, short run/walk at Rogue
Thurs: 5 miles (2 @ tempo) + recovery 
Sat: 10-12

  1. 2x1600? Ugh... 1600s are my least favorite. Except maybe tempo in general.


Comments rock.
