Christmas Break Training Week

Christmas Break💚....ah, finally. Time to sleep in, eat too many sweets, and promises of all the things that you keep meaning to catch up with during the 2 weeks you have off but somehow they tend to slip away from you.

I am excited to say that I did keep my training for Glass City Marathon for this week in check👊.

Here's what my training looked like for the week of Dec 19-25:

Sunday: Treadmill for 90 mins: 10 miles @ 9:00/mi (That was tough!)⛄
Monday: 5.12 mi @9:07 
Tuesday: Fartlek intervals: 2 mile warmup, 5 mins hard, 4 mins, 3 mins, 2 mins and 1 min hard each with 2 min recovery jog between for a total of 5.58 miles 8:12/mile💪
Wednesday: Xtrain- Spinning class🚴
Thursday: rest
Friday: 6 miles easy with a teammate! Hey, @countryrdrunner, that was fun!
Saturday (Xmas eve): 3 miles easy
Sunday (Xmas day): postponed until Monday.🌲 

Total Mileage this week: 29.71 miles!


Glass City Marathon's entry fees go up on Jan 1. If you ever wanted to run a marathon, here's a great chance. Plus, they have a special 1st time marathoner package! This is the 1st marathon that I've run that has this!
