I finished off week eight of my training for the Madison Marathon - eight weeks to go! It felt good to turn to the second page of my training schedule. Last week was another pretty solid week:
Monday: 3 miles easy (no tempo run this week - I figured my 8K race on Sunday was tempo enough).
Tuesday: 1 hr kettlebells
Wednesday: 800 m. swim, 5 miles speedwork
Saturday: 18 miles
Sunday: 30 min yoga
My long run was tough this week. I tried to outsmart the gale force winds by doing a 3.6 mile loop, 7.4 mile loop, the 3.6 again, and then a 3 mile out and back. It didn't work. The wind smacked me around. But it could be windy on race day. And now I'll be ready. Have a great week!
