A Solo Six – Week 3 Marathon Wrap Up

Standard

Wrapping up week 3 of NJ Marathon training with lots of cookie baking today. Brad got home Friday after an insane trip to DC and back to get him because of a missed flight. All that matters is that he’s home for the holidays 🙂 🙂 🙂

I ran my long run solo this weekend because of the unexpected trip to DC. Because Brad was supposed to fly into AC we had to go TO the AC airport Friday night to get his luggage because somehow his luggage made the flight and not him. ANYways, it was a blessing in disguise because we spent the night at his OCNJ house (since it was so late Friday when we got back to NJ) and I got to do my long run at the shore!

Just a typical winter running outfit. So far running tights, a cold weather long sleeved shirt, light vest, headband and gloves have been perfect. I suspect once the  temps drop another 10 degrees in the mornings that I will be layering up more.

Our TNT training plan called for 5-6 miles and going with our coach’s suggestion, I want to keep on the high end of mileage as long as there isnt snow and ice on the ground. I finished 6 miles in 59:20 which I am very happy about! I just want to keep my pace under 10 minute miles and so far I have done that for most runs.

Here’s a quick summary of my training this week:

  • Monday – 3 miles with Melissa
  • Tuesday – off
  • Wednesday – 2.5 miles
  • Thursday – personal training session
  • Friday – lots of mall walking (before lots of driving to DC!)
  • Saturday – 6 miles
  • Sunday – light yoga/stretching

Mileage is on the low end this week but I expect to kick that up over the next couple weeks for sure. With the holidays  coming up I have several days off and plan to run during the day which will be nice! If anyone in the West Chester area wants to run leave me a comment!!
