I'm back from spending a week with my family in Connecticut, where I ate many slices of cake and didn't run as often as I planned. (As it turns out, when you spend two days "cross training" and eating your weight in holiday leftovers and then try to run, things don't go as well as they should.) The bright side of not working out too hard while I was home is that I finally got rid of the cold that I developed weeks ago.
I finished this week with Yasso 800s at the gym. If there's any truth to the workout, I'm in great shape to run a sub-4:30 marathon. Now, I just need to get myself to the sub-4:00 range.
Here's the plan for Week 6:
Monday: X-train, weights
Tuesday: 6 miles (easy)
Wednesday: X-training, stretching
Thursday: 5 miles
Saturday: 18 miles
