Marathon Training - Week 14 of 30

I'm training for my first marathon, which will be the White Rock Marathon in Dallas on December 4, 2011. My training week runs from Monday to Sunday. Today is Monday (actually yesterday was Monday), which means the beginning of a new training week!

First, a quick review of last week (week 13):
  • Monday - scheduled rest - completed
  • Tuesday - 3 mile run - completed
  • Wednesday - 5 mile pace run - completed
  • Thursday - 3 mile run - missed
  • Friday - scheduled rest - completed
  • Saturday - 8 mile run - completed
  • Sunday - 1 hour walking - substituted cycling
  • Total distance run - 16 miles
Missed my first run of this cycle. But other than that, the rest of the week was great. I was pretty active last week because I was between jobs and trying to get some projects done around the house. So overall missing the 3 mile run isn't a huge deal. I was supposed to catch an early flight to Colorado on Thursday to visit some family. I rolled the dice on flying standby, but it didn't work out - I got bumped. Probably a good thing, because I didn't feel too good the rest of the day. So Thursday's run didn't happen. But, overall, a good week last week.

Now on to this week - Week 14 (Week 2 of Hal Higdon's Novice 2 program):

Another fairly easy week this week. Probably a good thing, because I'm starting a great new job this week, plus it continues to be extremely hot here in Texas! Here's what's on this week's schedule:
  • Monday - scheduled rest
  • Tuesday - 3 mile run
  • Wednesday - 5 mile run
  • Thursday - 3 mile run
  • Friday - scheduled rest
  • Saturday - 9 mile run
  • Sunday - 1 hour cross-training
  • Total running mileage - 20 miles

Have a great week!
