Vermont City Marathon Training Week 1

During past training cycles, I thought it was a good idea to write blog posts about every random workout I did. Looking back, it doesn't make any sense to me why I went on in such detail for all the internet to read. Now, I'd like to write about more than my tempo runs and splits but I'd still like to use this space to hold myself accountable for my training and to report on what I've done. In case there's anyone out there who's interested in learning from my experiences and mistakes. So begins a series, which I hope to keep up with through May 26, that provides weekly updates on my training. I'm currently working through week 3 so we're going to have to back track a bit.

The first line of each day is what I actually did and the parentheses beside it show what my scheduled workout was...

Week 1 (1.28.13-2.3.13):

Monday- 3 mile tempo run on treadmill (3 miles speed/tempo)
Tuesday- Arm weights (weights)
Wednesday- 1 hour spin class (CT cardio)
Thursday- 2.95 mile run at 8:24 pace (3 miles)
Friday- Rest (rest)
Saturday- 4.57 miles at 9:03 pace (long run- 4 miles)
Sunday- 90 minutes of frisbee (3mi/frisbee)
