Week 4 Marathon Training Recap

The theme of this week was runs together are better than runs alone. 

My friend Cristina shared this with me and it couldn't be truer. I ran 3 of my 4 runs this week with girlfriends and that alone made this an easier week. 

Week 4 Day 1 

This was a solo 6 miles but I was feeling good so I got em done!

Week 4 Day 2

I found an elliptical plan on Pinterest and I tweaked it a bit to make cross training a little more interesting. 

Week 4 Day 3

This time, I did 6 miles with my dear R at work. She is so good to me and so encouraging. Did I tell you she was the one that got me to a PR earlier this year at the Women's Half?!

Week 4 Day 4

This was another awesome one. Ran the 5 with 3 other amazing women. At 5:30 am. There is something about a run done by 6:30 that just makes the rest of the day so much better!

Week 4 Day 5

Best run of the week except I had a spill and bit it on the sidewalk and may have made a tiny hole in my Spandits!  Ugh!  But seriously, love my Moms Run this Town sole sisters. They make every run fun and inspirational. 

So, for the week I had 27 miles. My most so far!  So I put on my new Spandits dress and celebrated. 

With my super awesome and super supportive husband!
