Hi ya’ll! Over the coming weeks I will be sharing my training schedule and progress for the Edinburgh Marathon. I always enjoy reading about what others are doing to prepare for a goal race and I’ve found that by sharing my training plan it helps me stay accountable.
Be sure to read this post about reevaluating my goals and current running mojo!
Here’s what happened this week:
2 easy miles + Yoga for Lower Back Pain – Yoga with Adriene
30 minutes of easy spinning, clamshells and glute bridges with a heavy resistance band + Yoga
5.5 easy miles + quick back workout
6 miles with the last mile at GMP + Yoga
1.5 easy miles + ran about 10 flights of stairs
Lots and lots of barbell squats, step ups and kettle bell swings + 5 miles with the last 2 at GMP<— See my Instagram post for all the specifics
Total Miles: 20 miles
I wish I would have snuck a long run in somewhere and had higher mileage, but I did some solid work this week. I’ve really been enjoying all the strength work and I know it makes a huge difference in my running so its time well spent. I’m hoping this week I can get better mileage in while maintaining some of the weightlifting and yoga balance.
Are you currently training for anything?
Any Spring race plans?
