marathon training week 4

This will be a short post thanks to a lack of sleep...

Monday


Chiro appointment - I can move! 

Tuesday


Easy recovery run - 3.1 miles / 9:02 pace (instead of intervals...coming back easy)

Wednesday


Travel to Cleveland!

Thursday


Tempo run - 6 miles, 1 mile easy, 4 miles tempo, 1 mile easy.

Always nice to run at sea level! And in shorts in December. That's cool too.

Paces were 8:33, 8:19, 8:20, 8:18, 8:15, 8:57; goal tempo is 8:24 - so great run!

Friday

Long run the day after tempo..risky but the weather called for it!

Ran on an actual trail for a second there.

Covered bridge! Wahoo!

This would not be a helpful detour.

Goal pace: 9:32...so this also went well :)

Saturday


Eating. So much eating.

Sunday


Finishing eating. (Nice Brooks holiday socks too!!)

Needless to say, the nutrition wasn't so hot this week - so gotta get back into gear! I foresee a lot of treadmill in my future...
