Marathon Training: Days 23, 24 & 25

1 Mar

Day 23: Speed interval training. 5 sets of 0.25 mile intervals with the treadmill set at 6.6mph. Finished each interval in 2:29, walked 2:29 and repeated. Also did upper body weights

Day 24: Terrible run. So sore from previous day’s speed training, only managed to do in 1 mile in a lousy 15 minutes. Mental note: take a day off the day after interval training. Did box jumps, single leg bench squats, step downs and upper body weights

Day 25: Trail run at Cottonwood Creek Park Trail. Completed 5.06 miles in 1:08:40, but maintained a 13:30 pace which is enough to finish the marathon on time. Had elevation gains of 291 feet.
