Marathon Training: Week 7 in Review

Another week of marathon training has come and gone.  It's hard to believe how long I have already been at this.  7 weeks of the 18 week plan that I set myself up with.  Here is a rundown of the week:
Another week with 6 days of running, 2 of yoga, and 3 of strength, which makes for another week where I reached my goals!  I covered 25 total miles (running!) last week, which is the most that I have done in a single week in a very long time.  Probably since last summer!

This week I should end up around 26 miles!  Woo hoo!

I am still feeling good about running as of right now.  My legs got tired toward the end of last week, but they got refueled on Friday evening and Saturday and by yesterday's long run, I felt much better!  So I felt good for the majority of that run.  :)

Yesterday I busted out my new tights that finally came in.  I ordered them off of roadrunner sports, and they were on backorder.  I probably could have just cancelled the order, but I did not, so they came in last Thursday.  They are Under Armor cold gear tights, and they are not as thick as my mizuno ones that I have been wearing for the last year. 

So as it turned out, they were pretty good tights, but since it was a pretty cold day, I should have worn my others.  It was less than 30 degrees.  I think those would be good for the 35-50 degree days. 

So I am back on board once again today with lower body strength training and a two mile run!
