Training 6.2.14 - Chicago Marathon W1

Monday 6/2 - Rest
Hal says REST! 


Tuesday 6/3 - Run || 3 miles || 29:30, 9:50p || 70* but twilight...without sun this felt muggy but fine!
Great run. It's amazing how it can be warmer and yet without direct sunlight, feel totally fine. A great first run in this marathon training cycle! Splits 10:12/9:52/9:24. 3/3



Wednesday 6/4 - Run || 5 miles || 49:17, 9:51p || 64* and rainy
Getting up at 5 sucks but running in the rain is so, so worth it. There is something so beautiful about the smell of wet soil and grass, the feel of water sliding off your skim...Splits 10:26, 10:04, 9:46, 9:44, 9:12. 8/8


Thursday 6/5 - Run || 3 miles || 33:00, 11:00p || Treadmill
Foot pod fails for manual treadmills, apparently. Who knew. Bummer! 11/11.


Friday 6/6 - Rest
Rest!

Saturday 6/7 - Run || 8 miles || 1:26:17, 10:47p || 71-78+ and sunny
Hot! Yuck. 5 miles at 10:43p, decided to finish the 8 miles with 3 on the treadmill where at least I would be in the sun. Did 2 and then finished with 1 last mile outside at..10:43 on the dot. There was no downtime between miles 7 and 8; between miles 5 and 6 I stopped in the bathroom though, so this is only moving time. 19/19


Sunday 6/8 - Cross training || Elliptical || 30:00, 9:40p || Course 1
I had planned a lot more but the weekend was so busy I am just glad I didn't miss the workout! 

Total: 19 miles run, 3.1 elliptical. First week of Chicago training is done!

    1. Hal knows best! Or at least, better than me! He got me through my first 10 mile race and my first half. I believe!
