Mamavation Mondays - Week 9 of marathon training



This week was pretty uneventful and status quo, pretty much similar to last week. I worked out about the same amount as last week. I missed working out on Wednesday again, and my Thursday workout was just bowling - but I did bike on Saturday. Also, my long run ended up shortened by a rain storm, since we were camping and I didn't have access to a treadmill. I tried a new yoga video last week called power yoga. When I did it, I didn't really feel like I was getting a workout, but man, the next day I was super sore. I also meditated twice last week, and once was on the beach - so peaceful. So here's the wrap up from last week -

Monday - Power Yoga
Tuesday - 3 miles of speedwork and 320 yds of swimming
Wednesday - nothing
Thursday - bowling
Friday - 3 miles easy run
Saturday - 2.17 mile bike ride at the campground
Sunday - 5.65 mile run (2 1/2 miles on the beach)



Next week's goals are pretty similar as last week's - 

1. More consistency with cross training
2. Continue my marathon training
3. Continue to avoid eating poorly
4. Meditate at least 4 times this week

How is everyone else coming with their goals?

  3. Good luck with your marathon training! I find that training, rather than exercising is way more motivating for me too - there's a bit of a change in philosophy when you start training - like there's more of an urgency to stick to it. Great job & have a fantastic week!

    1. I agree - I don't seem to do well with maintenance, I need to train for something :)

  4. I think your work outs were perfect! We can't always be 100% on our games and at times, we have to have forgiveness for not being all we wanted to be. You are doing GREAT!
