Week 5 of marathon training is here and the hubby and I are on vacation in Cancun the end of the week. So, with that in mind we are hoping to get in as much of our training as possible while still being able to relax.
My initial plan was:
- Monday: 3 miles
- Tuesday: 6 miles
- Wednesday: 3 miles
- Thursday: 6 miles
- Friday: rest or cross training
- Saturday: 12 miles (long run)
- Sunday: rest

I wanted to wake up and do an early run but because of a really bad storm from Sunday night I wasn’t able too. So I want to the gym to try out their Woodway Treadmills because it was to darn hot to go outside.
3.18 miles done!
All I have to say about the Woodway treadmill is that I found my new best friend! I ran on it comfortably with no knee pain! I felt like I was gliding! I highly recommend this treadmill to anyone with nagging injuries, such as myself.

6.12 miles on the Woodway treadmill again at the gym. The temperature outside is crazy, it’s way to hot to hit the pavement. Please cool down soon!

3.12 miles before 6am! It was difficult to get out of bed but worth it in the end.
Travel day to Cancun, Mexico for a brief vacation!
We just wanted to get to the resort and begin relaxing. Therefore, it was a rest day!

We woke up and relaxed the whole day partly on the beach reading then lounging in the pool the rest of the day.
Wanted to get a run in but felt all the swimming I did in the pool was a good workout.
Saturday, July 30th
The hubby and I weren’t able to get a run in because we were on a boat tour all day. We did quite a bit of swimming when we returned to the hotel and walking around an island.

Wow! We are definitely sad to leave Cancun, our vacation was amazing and very relaxing. Wish we had one more day but back to real life tomorrow and get back into marathon training after our mini break.
