Week three recap

Leave a comment

Week 3 of Grandma’s half marathon training looked something like this:

Monday: Rest day! Went to the Twins game. Ate some good food. Including

Tuesday: ran 3 in 31 minutes.

Wednesday: Strength training (glutes and core) at the gym.

Thursday: ran 3.1 miles in 30 minutes.

Friday: ran 2.5 miles in 25 minutes over lunch.

Saturday: Biked 9.13 in 41 minutes.

Sunday: Glorious run (and on the (dread)mill!!) 6.2 miles in 1:01. From Dailymile – Was planning to run the Get in Gear route with friends this morning but we weren’t sure if the weather would hold out. So I reluctantly headed to the gym and did the longest run I’ve done in awhile on the treadmill. The plus? Of course it’s much easier to pace. My splits:

Mile 1 – 10:20
Mile 2 – 10:10
Mile 3 – 10:00
Mile 4 – 9:50
Mile 5 – 9:40
Mile 6.2 – 9:31

I started the week off with my favorite core class at the gym and have a 3-miler on the schedule for tomorrow!
