Marathon Weekly- Listening to Myself for a Change
Week 2 was a tough one but as I said on Friday things are improving with my hamstring J I am loving this new clinic and doctor. I have been able to run pain free on flat routes and am thrilled, even managed a slightly hilly run Saturday without pain! This week has also brought the return of allergies and on top of that issues with thyroid continue. I have been hypothyroid since my diagnosis in 2007 and rarely keep the same dose, once again I am in the middle of dose changes thanks to my thyroid slacking and making me even more fatigued plus I get the joy of hanging on to a few extra pounds L
Monday: Pilates DVD in morning, 1 hour elliptical, no way I was getting back in the freezing pool!
Tuesday: Morning spin/weights with trainer & Easy evening Run 5.5 miles
Wednesday: 1 hour elliptical while O went to kid’s yoga at the gym J
Thursday: Morning Spin/Weights, Run 5.5 miles (walking on hills), 1 mile walk in afternoon and core
Friday: 1.5 mile run to gym/Spin/1.5 mile run home pushing BOB
Saturday: 6 Mile run with group & weights
Sunday: Failed attempt at morning run thanks to allergies and fatigue ( ½ mile then home) but managed 4 miles run/walk with puppy before dinner
|This says it perfectly!|
Week 3 of B2B marathon training means I am 2 down and 2 to go until race day. The good news is I am feeling good about the hamstring but the weather ahead is not wonderful: rain and storms daily L
Goal: Now that the pool heat is fixed I plan to swim again. My 3rd half of the year and 2nd in the Monster Series is this week, I’m not making big goals this time after such tough racing so far. I honestly just want to start having good runs again.
Monday: Re-attempt of the 10 Mile run (this time with a friend)
Tuesday: Morning spin/weights with trainer & Easy evening Run (coaching)
Wednesday: Elliptical or swim while O goes kid’s yoga
Thursday: Morning Spin/Weights, Easy Run
Friday: Spin and Core
Saturday: 3-4 Mile run with group & weights
Sunday: Half Marathon #4 of 2013 Goal A sub1:40 B sub1:45 C Have a good run J
Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. Can’t wait to hear how everyone did at their races this weekend!
