Disney Marathon Training - Week Nine

WOAH! WE'RE HALFWAY THERE!! I can't believe it. Nine weeks down! This week was focusing on pacing. Lots of pace work this week. Got in all of my workouts and then some!

On Monday I ran my Gone For A Run Live Love Run virtual race. You can catch the recap here.

Tuesday was Halloween! I loved getting to wear my favorite fall outfit to work!

I was going to run after work but traffic was ridiculous. It took me close to two hours to get home. I just went home and did some hip work. Hubs wanted to hand out candy and we dressed Dangle up for the first time!

Wednesday morning I hit the track in a wintery mix. It sucked outside but I had a good workout. Here is how it broke down.

1 mile warm up
1000m x 4 - 200m x 4 Goal 4:44 and :57
( 4:47 :54 - 4:46 :56 - 4:47 :59 - 4:50 :55)
1 minute rest in between
1 mile cool down

I programmed the workout wrong so I had to improvise and some man wanted to talk to me at 6am. I was not happy but I got it done! A little over five miles total.

Thursday after work I headed out for a tempo run. It was 30 degrees warmer than the day before. It was crazy!

Eight miles total with six miles at marathon pace - goal 9:00
(8:45 8:56 8:50 8:44 8:45 8:49)

I was a little fast but I'm really proud of myself for this. This was a great workout!

Friday and Saturday I did some strength and hip work to rest for the 10 miler on Sunday.

I will recap the 10 miler later this week, but spoiler alert I CRUSHED IT! 12.5 miles total for the day!

Weekly Total: 30.7 miles
November Total: 25.7 miles
2017 Total: 938.1 miles

Gosh this was a great week. I'm thrilled with progressing and seeing it. Plus, I am so happy I PRed the 10 miler. I can't wait to share my recap with all of you!
