Week 7 of Mississauga Half-Marathon Training

I FINALLY kicked the stomach bug that I had in the butt and was able to get on with training. Since I was sick for most of week, I didn’t bother starting a new strength training routine until Monday of week seven. It sucks to take a week off, but I feel rejuvenated and refreshed. It’s crazy to think that I’m seven weeks down with seven more to go…hopefully I make it out on the other side!

Monday

Intervals (Fartlek): 3.7mi with an average pace of 10:38/mi and a moving time of 39:34.

Shoulders:

-5 min warm up

-Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 30lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Standing Shoulder Press: 55lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Dumbbell Lateral Raise: 20lbs @ 16 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

*I’m thinking that I might make leg day and shoulder day one day (say that five times fast)…although their two totally different muscle groups, they’re both relatively short days and combining the two would give me an extra rest day.

Tuesday

Endurance Run: 10mi with an average pace of 11:15/mi and a moving time of 1:52:46.

Week 7

Week 7 1

Pretty much tastes like jam in a packet. Definitely going to have to do a review soon.

*this run was CRAZY hard. It was my first run back after being sick, and my pace definitely suffered. I also tried gels for the first time, (I’ve used chews in the past but wanted to change it up), and definitely noticed a difference in my energy levels. I’ll have to do a review soon!

Wednesday

Rest day.

Thursday

Legs:

-5 min warm up

-V-Squats: 120lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Standing Calf Raises: 65lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Hip Adductor: 170lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Hip Abductor: 175lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

Back & Biceps:

-5 min warm up

-Reverse Grip Lat Pulldown: 75lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Concentrated Bicep Curls: 20lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Deadlift: 90lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Barbell Preacher Curls: 35lbs @ 20 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Low Row: 70lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

-Bicep Curls (machine): 50lbs @ 25 reps total (1 min rest between sets)

*I should note that the weight for the deadlift does not include the bar.

Friday

Rest Day.

Saturday

Rest Day.

Sunday

Intervals: 3.69mi with an average pace of 11:06/mi and a moving time of 40:56.2.

      • I know plenty of people that have been struck down by the plague this year. Fortunately for me, it was just in my lungs. I find the chews to be tasty and fun but irritating when they stick in your teeth. I like gels because you can slurp them back but need to be chased with water. And after a few its sweetness overload. But that’s the fun of experimenting
