20-Week Marathon Training Program: Week 4

This week looks incredibly restful, but my schedule forced me to push my long run for this week (was supposed to be 7 miles) into next week.  Check week 5 if you don't believe me.  It is hot in Tucson, even as we approach October.  I am anxiously awaiting some cooler weather so I can really get my run on.  The product that is saving me right now is the Nathan water belt with 27 ounces of water between 3 small water bottles.  It even has a pouch for my phone, so I can listen to music while I run.  I picked mine up at Lucy, but you can also find it on Amazon.  

As for my individual workout on Friday, here is EXACTLY what I did.  I started with 10 minutes on the elliptical trainer, level 8.  I then completed 100 squats and dead lifts, holding 10-pound weights.  For my upper body, I struggled through 50 overhead shoulder presses and 50 biceps curls, both with 10-pound weights.  I concluded my workout with 35 triceps dips (yes, the real kind... channel your inner male gymnast) and some stretching.  That's it!
