Week 6 of training for the Divas Hall Marathon was a good week. I still feel like I'm behind after dealing with a urinary infection in week 4, but I tried to focus on what I COULD DO instead of what I SHOULD DO.
My goal was to get all of my workouts in. However, I did miss my Tuesday workout because my Ladybug (almost 5 years old) was under the weather & needed extra mama time. Just part of being flexible & keeping priorities in check.
Monday: 2.5 mile run in the a.m., then a 30 minute power walk in the evening
Tuesday: missed workout
Wednesday: 2.3 mile run
Thursday: light strength workout
Friday: cardio/strength circuits
Saturday: 6.2 mile run
Sunday: rest day
I don't know if it was adding strength training back in or if I'm finally recovered, but by Saturday my energy was almost 100% again, which was a great feeling! I think I could have run farther on Saturday, but I didn't want to risk injury.
My goal for this week will be to get my mileage back up to where it should be. Originally this was scheduled as a step-back week, with a 5k race this Saturday. I'm still running the 5k, but I'll tack on a few extra miles afterward to get me close to 15 miles for the week.
