Marathon Training Monday V: #MTM

Yes, it’s Tuesday. I started this yesterday and had the best intentions to post it yesterday. I failed.

Happy Monday!  I can’t believe how fast April is going…race day is now less than a month away!

Here is last week’s training recap:

Monday:

9.2 miles on the boardwalk in Ocean City, MD.

Tuesday:

Strength Training = power tone class (similar to body pump but not as structured)

Wednesday:

Track Workout: 3 x 1600m at a 6:51 pace

Our times:

1600m in 6:46
1600m in 6:46
1600m in 6:39

With the jog to and from the track, we finished with about 4.5 miles.

Thursday:

Strength training and cardio – I went to lunch with coworkers, so I squeezed in a quick workout after work.

15 minutes on the bike

3 rounds of the following:

15 squat jumps
15 push-ups
10 back kicks on each leg
10 tricep push-ups on each arm
15 tricep dips
30 sit-ups or bicycles
10 push up planks on each side

This was a great workout and I will try to show a demonstration of some of the moves that aren’t that familiar soon. 🙂

Friday:

7 easy miles total. Some outside with friends and a few on the treadmill.
