Steamtown training week 2 + Meal Plan Link Up

Hello from the beach!

We’re enjoying a few days with extended family – cousins and cousins kids.  We’re not sleeping as much as we could be, but it’s worth it!

I wrapped up another successful week of training for Steamtown.  This is one of my favorite times of year to run.  I love NOT being cold! I know it will soon be too warm but we had several cool mornings this week which were perfect for running.


Sunday: off

Monday: 6 mile easy run (8:49 ave)

Tuesday: 3 mile walk + 20 minute strength circuit (mountain climbers, push ups, leg raises, squat and press, incline push ups, tricep dips x 4)

Wednesday: 7 mile run with 5 alternating tempo 7:19 and 7:01 (actual paces were 8:45 warm up, alternating tempo 7:23, 7:01, 7:22, 6:52, 7:18, cool down 7:55)

Thursday: 2.5 walk + Ignite Burn 20 minute strength

Friday: 13 hilly run (8:18 ave)

Saturday: 6 easy at the beach


So far so good with marathon training! The paces are coming easily and I feel like I’m working without overdoing it.  I still have plenty of energy for the rest of my day.

I’m also seeking hills for my long runs instead of looking for the flat routes.  I know it will pay off on race day.

  1. It sounds like a good week for you and thanks as always for sharing. I’m craving smoked salmon now, so I think I might give that a shot.
