Not Marathon Training Week 5

It's all but official. I am not running Marine Corps.

I ran this week for the first time in 3 weeks. It was a perfectly fine run for not having ran in 3 weeks. But it was painfully clear (literally) that I will not be ready for a marathon in 13 weeks.

Frustrating? Yes.

Smart? Yes.

Sunday - 2 yoga podcasts.

Monday - 3.5 mile run. Snuck in at just under a 9 minute overall pace, but it was clear that I can't run Marine Corps.

Tuesday - Rest.

Wednesday - 35 minutes on the bike in the AM, plus upper body lifting and squats at lunch. Quads did not like doing squats with weights for the first time since, oh, March?

Thursday - Rest, unless you count walking about a mile total to get lunch.

Friday - 35 minutes on the bike.

Saturday - 45 minutes on the bike, plus planks and pushups.

Total Miles - 3.5
