Workouts - Last Week Today - December 25

fontover_201671013354641-1.jpgI'm in my 13th week of training for the Houston Marathon. Race day is 3 weeks away!! I've finished out my highest mileage runs and I'm headed into the taper.

It was a great week of running, kicking off with the Santa Hustle Half in Galveston. I changed around my workouts a bit so that I wasn't running my long run on Christmas day (and ended the week with some pretty high mileage).  Here is how my week played out:

Sunday - 14 miles total.  1 mile warm up, then a half-marathon in Galveston.  It was  challenging one with 35 "feels like temps" and 35-40 mph winds. I hope to get the recap for that race up this week.

Monday - I had 4 easy miles on the schedule, but opted to rest. My calf was acting up so I took care to do some extra foam rolling and stretching.

Tuesday - Rest.

Wednesday -  8 miles progressive (sort of...) 11:13/10:35/10:41/10:33/10:00/9:51/9:36/9:18.


Thursday - Basics Yoga class.

Friday - 8 miles steady.

Saturday - 16 miles.  I was supposed to speed it up for a fast finish, but with the heat and humidity... I just didn't have it in me and kept it at a steady pace.


Total Miles = 46

I'm linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap; and Nicole, Annmarie, Jen, and Michelle for Wild Workout Wednesday.

  1. stayed busy! 46 miles is pretty beast-like ;-)

  2. It's amazing how the mileage keeps creeping up and it doesn't seem like all that much when you are actually running it.

  3. Amazing job, I don't think I could ever handle that much mileage! Great job on the progression run too!

  4. Very impressive week of miles, Vicki! I know you are so happy to start tapering now. I ran a bit more mileage this training cycle and hope it makes for stronger final miles in the marathon. Right now, I feel tired! I'm a little worried about the heat & humidity. Fingers crossed that Mother Nature is kind to both of us on race day. Wow -- great job in running your half in high winds. Thanks for linking!
