Just a quick update on Week 2 of marathon training. So far so good.
8.0 miles/1:08:09/8:31 average pace
I did 4 miles alone at an easy pace (9:12 ave) before Zach got off work. Then, he changed and we went back out together for the 4 miles of Tempo Pace. We started off a little slow at 8:22, then dropped our pace each mile with the last mile coming in at 7:17. Average for that 4 miles was 7:50- not bad. It was hard but I did it.
about 45 minutes on the Mtn. bikes just around town (scoping out Zach's bike commute)
11.0 miles/1:43:17/9:23 average pace
Really slow and easy long run solo along the waterfront. I turned on my ipod and just zoned out. I didn't feel like I was going very slow, but I was, especially at first. Whatever though, it felt very easy. I didn't take any breaks and it was done before I knew it.
Oh, I've also been doing some light weight training at home after my runs. I'm shooting for 2-3 times a week and it's going good.
Tonight Zach still has to do his run so I think I'll take my bike out and ride along with him.
So that's it for my boring training update! Have a good day everyone. :)
