Mercedes Marathon Training: Week 6 Complete

Time in this training plan is starting to fly by! Being sick all week was no help. I made an attempt to slow down my recovery and warm up runs. Today I ran 15 Miles W/ 12 Miles @ MGP. Afterward I did some ab, back and chest work.

Here is how the week ended up:
M: Rest

W: 10 Miles VO2 Max W/ 5 X 1000M Strides (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 1:17:44, 7:47 Pace), Sit Ups and Squats on BOSU
R: 6 Miles Recovery W/ 6 X 100M Strides (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 47:50, 7:59 Pace)
F: 12 Miles Med-Long (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 1:35:48, 7:59 Pace)
Sa: Rest
Su: 15 Miles Long W/ 12 @ MGP (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 1:59:25, 7:58 Pace), Ab, Back and Chest Strengthening

Total: 48 Miles

  1. Hi, I just found your blog via another blog! I love your training ethics…very hard-working/hard core!! Are you running Boston or another marathon soon?


  2. Great job again this week. This sickness must be viral through the internet. I haven't been around any sick people, but I know plenty online, and now I have it.Lucky for me I had two rest days back to back so I am hoping to not have to live up to your hard core ethics and run tomorrow feeling like crap. :-)Congrats on yet another excellent training week.


  3. HOW on EARTH do you run on a treadmill for that long??? I make it a mile and count down the hundreds of miles remaining. I can run forever outside, but on a treadmill, I just can't take it! Good for you… that is dedication!


  4. Hey Stephanie! Yeah I would much rather be outside, but the below zero temps and longer runs has meant getting it done on the treadmill. I do mix it up with TV, music or nothing depending how I feel. It is menatlly draining, but I just keep hoping that the weather will come around soon.CJ
