Weekly Workouts: Week of April 7

Another week has gone by and we are now less than 2 weeks away from the Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon! It is hard to believe that we are now at the point where we get to start relaxing our runs, and finally starting to taper.
Or if you were me, you might not need to taper, because you have pretty much been slacking this entire training cycle except for three weeks in a row were I had 9-10 mile training runs that I did at a pretty good pace. Ha!

Last week I set a goal to run 4 times AND to get in at least one day of OTHER workouts (and I did not count packing, although I did plenty of heavy lifting!) and I met that goal. It was not exactly what I really wanted as far as distances or paces, but I met my most basic goal. So that means I need to consider myself a success on the week, even if somewhere in my head I am feeling disappointed (spoiler alert: in my head I feel disappointed).

Here is how last week shook out in the workout scene:
Monday: 40 minute full body circuit workout (squat jumps killed my hammies!)
Tuesday: 4 mile run, easy
Wednesday: rest
Thursday: 3.1 miles, easy
Friday: 3.1 miles, easy
Saturday: 6 miles, easy
Sunday: rest

1 strength/circuit workout
4 runs
16.2 miles

Definitely not the best week overall, but I guess I need to be happy with what I DID do, rather than get mad at myself for what I didn't. My legs were sore and tired all week from that strength workout, so every run was slower than I would have liked, and every run hurt.

How were your workouts last week?
