Columbus Marathon Training: Week 7

It’s been a busy, crazy, stressful week, but I’m going to claim it as a victory. I’m still pulling some short runs, and lack of runs, but I’ve finally ventured into a few weeks of pain free running. While my longest run has only been 3 miles, way under where I’m supposed to be, I’m proud of where I am. I may have taken a big step back by taking these weeks easy. But I’m able to run multiple miles a few times a week and not have any pain. I haven’t been able to do this since the beginning of March! Huge win for me.

I was even able to mix up my run by doing morning runs and got a chance to run in the New Orleans for my Tuesday run. It was incredibly hot and humid by 8am, but it was a nice way to see the city. I felt like I could have gone longer, but cut it short to play it safe in an area I didn’t know. It’s much better to run on Bourbon Street at 8am than 8pm.

Monday: Rest Day

Tuesday: 1.5 Miles

Wednesday: Rest Day

Thursday: 3 Miles

Friday: Rest Day

Saturday: Rest Day

Sunday: Rest Day

Total Miles: 4.5 Miles

While I’m still stuck in low mileage, I’m hoping this next week I can really focus on some longer runs. I’m at a crucial point where I need to get my mileage back up and right away. These next two weeks could be determining factor for how the race will go. If I can’t get my mileage back to where it needs to be, I honestly may need to rethink training.
