Week 4 of NYC Half Marathon Training

The weather has still been so-so but I was able to mostly run outside.

Monday 1/17: Since I had moved my long run to Sunday, we moved my recovery run to today. 4 miles on the dot.

Tuesday 1/18: Lactate Threshold blocks (3×8 minutes) on the treadmill with a warmup and cooldown for 6.1 miles total. Deep tissue massage in the PM. Only two weeks after my last massage, which is a nice cadence if you can get it.

Wednesday 1/19: 40 minute recovery run.

Thursday 1/20: 1 hour easy with some strides in the middle.

Friday 1/21: Rest day

Saturday 1/22: 2 hour long run (my longest since before the marathon). Did 10.5 miles with some light hills (except for the 10% grade one which I walked up).

Sunday 1/23: Recovery run with strides.

Total: Finally over 30 miles! I’m planning to keep Mondays as rest days going forward, then have the option to do a little shakeout on Fridays. Trying to keep up with SAM and core work, as my heavy weight strength has been slipping.

One thought on “Week 4 of NYC Half Marathon Training

  1. It looks like you had a pretty productive training week. My strength training has suffered over the past couple of weeks. Somehow, I’ve fallen out of of my routine.
