Amy's Marathon Weekly Training Plan in which I will kiss
the 4:00+ hour Marathons goodbye (unless I don't):Tuesdays= Track Days. Yassos increasing every week.
Thursdays= Hills & Tempo Days. Alternating weeks. (God, I'm going to freaking HATE thursdays. Ummm... depending on wine classes that take place on wednesday nights, these workouts may be moved to Fridays).
Saturday/Sunday= Long Runs
And the other days of the week will be one rest day and then recovery runs.
So, today... being Tuesday... I did my track workout. After blistering my last two Yassos last week ... I was all prepared to bring it this week. But, I was going to bring it for 4 Yassos instead of a measly 3.
I started off pretty well... My first interval was 3:52. I felt like I clicked that 800 meters off pretty easily. And then my friends, then I stopped bringing it... My next interval was 4:00 and I seriously struggled for that 4:00. The last two I ended up with a consistent 3:58 each time. But, each of the last 3 intervals, I had to kick my ass into total gear the last 50-75 meters or so to get in at those times.
This was not a "feel good" track workout. This was a... "I feel like the slowest person on earth" track workout. But, I wound up with times that are right on par with where I should be. So, I can't be too disappointed.
Thursday's Tempo Run will be a race... so, that should be interesting...
