Tunnel Light Marathon Training Week 1: 4/30-5/6

It's been a while since I've posted a Weekly Wrap post but I figure since I'm starting up marathon training (yes, I'm now on to marathon #3), now is the best time to get back into posting regularly. After CIM and especially after our trip to Japan, I kind of just took a break with the weekly wrap posts. It's been nice to take a break, however I'm excited to post again and hope you enjoy following along on my journey, training for the Tunnel Light marathon in September.

I'm working with Coach Dawn again. I'm on a 20 week training schedule. Here's a recap of last week's workouts following her plan:

Monday 4/30 -
Scheduled: Depending on how you feel after Zion (I was in Zion last weekend for the half! Check out my IG for pics) - Easy to recovery pace- 30-35 minutes.
Actual: I felt fine so went with a 30 minute recovery run.
Tuesday 5/1 -
Scheduled: Rest
Actual: Rest
Wednesday 5/2 -
Scheduled: Easy 35-40 minutes
Actual: Morning run with friends. Took it easy and ended up running 4.6 miles in 50 minutes, around 10:54 pace.
Thursday 5/3 -
Scheduled: Light XT or rest.
Actual: Went with light XT, so did a short 5.37 mile bike ride.
Friday 5/4 -
Scheduled: Easy 2 miles, 3 x strides w/ 2 minutes easy in between- 10-15 seconds. Then 2 x 30 seconds fast w/2:30 easy in between. Keep it all around 80% effort level. So a hard effort, but you should feel like you could go a little faster if you needed to. 1.5 miles easy after.
Actual: Got in the workout and ended up with at total of 5 miles.
Saturday 5/5 -
Scheduled: Rest
Actual: Rest
Sunday 5/6 -
Scheduled: 6-7 mile long run with the last .5 mile going moderate pace.
Actual: Got in 7 miles with a friend and pushed the pace the last .5. 

April turned out to be a pretty good month with 116 miles! I ran two fun half marathons (RnRSF and Zion half marathon) so I got in some good mileage. 
As to the weekend, it was pretty busy. Saturday was the start of 8 year old's select soccer team's tournament in Pacifica, CA. They had two games scheduled. 
They ended up winning one and losing one. We ended the day at the beach where they got to play. I don't understand how they can play when it was so cold out.
Sunday I ran my long run with my friend Maria before heading into work. The boys and Hubby went back to Pacifica to finish up the soccer tournament where the team unfortunately lost their 3rd game. They tried their best and had fun though, which is what matters most to me.
That pretty much sums up my week! Linking this post up with HoHo Runs and Taking the Long Way Home for their Weekly Wrap. 
Have a great week!
