St. Jude Training – Week 17

The training the St. Jude’s Marathon is done.

It was a good week and what made it even better was that I was on vacation. With the office closed Thursday and Friday, Thanksgiving week is always a good time to get a week off and only use three vacation days.

Monday was 7 miles with 8 x 100m strides.

Tuesday, I ran 8 miles.

Wednesday was a rest day.

Thursday, Amy and I ran the Habitot 5k and then I ran 2 additional miles when I got back to the house.

Friday was another rest day.

Saturday I ran 12 miles.

Now it is just a couple of easy runs this week and then head for Memphis on Friday.

At this point, the weather looks great, overnight lows in the mid-30s and the high in the low 50s and dry. Hope the forecast holds for the next 7 days.

    I love the use 3 days to get a week philosphy. I did it too.

    Wow, I ran 12 this weekend too, but in two days instead of one.
