Week 7 of Marathon Training

Even though haven't exactly stuck to it run by run, it has been really helpful for me to plan with the Runner's World Plan. This is my last week of summer before workdays start. Planning and structure are going to be of paramount importance in the coming weeks if I want to stay on track. So, let's see what's in store for this week....

(Oh, by the way, I still have been a total failure at my strength training. Such a failure, that I'm not going to bother with listing it in my plans for right now.)

1-2 miles, morning (hmm...that means I should probably be running right this second)

4 miles, morning

5-6 miles, morning

1 mile, evening

3-4 miles, morning

1 mile, whenever

14 miles, hopefully in the morning before church

I'm considering switching my long runs to Saturday and may do so this week. We'll just see how things pan out.

P.S. I had a wonderful first anniversary with my husband in Charleston last weekend! Part of my gift to him was leaving behind my running shoes when I packed. : ) (I ran right before we left on Saturday and right after we got back on Sunday. Saturday morning, I even got to run with my friend Amy who is also training for a marathon, which was a real treat!)


  1. I love my long runs on Saturday! Happy Anniversary!

  2. I prefer my long runs on Saturday. That way when you are finished you have a long time before your Sunday recovery run. Just a thought. You will do great on your 14 miler. Unstoppable you!

  3. Just catching up on your 365. I'm Attempting the same thing of at least a mile day and planning is paramount.

  4. great plan ahead sounds like you are doing great! Happy anniversary, that was nice of you! maybe next yr he can bring his sneakers?

  5. i think long runs are definately better on saturdays!

  6. Wow, this is such an impressive goal! Good luck!
