Week 13 meant the final peak week of training and now I taper, yikes. After a little recovery from the hilly 10 Mile Race I feel pretty great. This week brought yet another snow storm complete with 1 foot of snow and blizzard conditions, it also brought 1 day of shorts.
Monday: Yoga & 12.5 mile hill workout
Tuesday: Morning Spin, weights with trainer & 7.5 mile hill run with speed intervals (thanks to new guy at run group!) 53:30
Wednesday: Sluggish Morning 9 mile Run 1:13:20
Thursday: Morning 45 min Bike Trainer & Afternoon run 4.6 miles 35:00 + weights
Friday: Morning Spin & Yoga with O (her request)
Saturday: 22.2 miles 3:14:05
Sunday: 5.1 mile recovery run 43:50 & Afternoon weights
And what's ahead for Week 14 of marathon training? Taper! Not a fan of tapering, the first week is fine but then I go nuts. It won’t help that we are finally reaching 60 degrees this week, I’ll need to restrain myself for wanting to get out and run all the time. But before that we are in the midst of yet another winter storm warning today, are you kidding?
Goal: Continue to listen to my body, foam roll, ice and stretch. Hoping for clear sidewalks and running in shorts after this last (I hope) snow storm! Get back on track with healthy eating after my cupcake and wine indulgence this weekend.
Monday: Yoga & 8-10 mile hill repeats
Tuesday: Morning Spin, weights with trainer & Easy evening Run (coaching)
Wednesday: Morning Run (Tempo or Intervals run) during preschool
Thursday: Morning Spin & Afternoon run 3-4 miles/weights
Friday: Morning Spin & Yoga
Saturday: 16-18 mile long run
Sunday: Recovery Run/walk 3-4 miles (local run for Boston) & weights
