sugarloaf marathon training week 1


Can you believe it!? It’s time to start training for the Sugarloaf Marathon! Training officially starts today as Monday was technically a rest day. I’ve decided to sign up for session 2 of spin classes for Mondays, so I’m moving my Sunday cross-training day to Monday. Sunday will now be rest or long-run if – for whatever reason – I’m unable to do the long run on Saturday. First off, here’s a look at this week’s mileage:

Monday – cross, spin class

Tuesday – 3 miles

Wednesday – 5 miles

Thursday – 3 miles

Friday – off

Saturday – 8 miles

Sunday – off

I’m psyched and I also have a feeling that these next 18 weeks are going to go by really quickly. I know that I need to start experimenting with long run nutrition because the last thing that I want to do is rely solely on shot bloks on race day.

Tune in for these next few months for some significant race recaps, training updates and healthy recipes!
