Today concludes Week 6 of my Chicago Marathon training and guess what!? I reached 1000 miles so far this year!
This week started off kind of tough. I was in Maine, way up in the middle of nowhere, but a beautiful place, for the Fourth of July. The only road I could run on was dirt, rocky, hilly and had potential for wildlife. Aka no houses around after a certain point and no people. So it was tough to get my runs in but I did what I could. I also think the change in service hurt my foot a bit because it is feeling better now that I have returned to Portsmouth and pavement!
Monday: Rest! Relaxed by the lake in Maine and read some books 🙂
Friday: 8 mile fartlek at the gym due to rain – 10 minute warm up 10 minutes at 7:15 pace, 4x 3 minutes at 6:30 pace with 2 minute recovery jog between, 2×1 minute at 6:00 pace with 2 minute recovery jog between, cool down to 8!
2017 total: 1000.7 miles
My sister visited this weekend and we had a great time together! We also saw my parents in Portland, overall a satisfying weekend filled with smiles:)
