Marathon Training Monday IV: #MTM

Happy Monday! It’s an especially happy Monday for me because I’m off work today and tomorrow. πŸ™‚

Here is a recap of last week’s training!

Monday:. 6.3 tempo miles. The plan called for a 7:38 pace but we were over achievers. πŸ™‚


Tuesday: Strength training = body pump class.

Wednesday: Track workout!

1000m in 4:05
2000m in 8:20
1000m in 4:07
1000m in 4:07
1 mile cool down on the treadmill

Thursday: Retirement fun run! 4.46 miles outside and 2.54 miles on the treadmill = 7 easy miles for the day.

Friday: Strength training workout with Jeanette. We did a series of 8 exercises varying from leg work, arm work, and AB exercises. We went through the series of exercises 3 times and my shoulders were feeling it on Saturday morning.

Saturday: 20 miles in the books. We kept a pretty good pace throughout the run and even picked it up for the last 3 miles. It was so great to get in a “good feeling” long run since race day is about a month away!


I hope you had a great week of training, cross fitting, body pumping, walking, doing what like to be doing, etc!



  1. I’m going to start incorporating speed work into my training in a few weeks and wondering if you have any suggestions for good speed work run work outs??

    • Hi Melissa! Speed workouts are a great way to improve your pace and if you email me your goals, I can help you with some track workouts to achieve those goals. πŸ™‚

  2. Sounds like a tough week! Not sure it would be tough for you though. You are rocking those runs!

  3. You are rocking girl! I would love to live hear you so we could run together πŸ™‚

  4. Have a good couple days off work! Is it a special occasion?
