Not so Marathon Monday- Week in Review
Well, looks like I am back at it again. I made the decision to run the Swan Lake Marathon in 3 weeks and started following a back to back marathon recovery/training plan. I guess we can call this Week 1 again since I have decided to run the marathon in June! Guess what, no snow this week! But record heat on Tuesday and then storms all weekend, ugh! I had my first (and only) visit with the sports doc, yes I thought it was good but he is not near what I got from the guy I used to see. So despite things being less than ideal (further and no child care) I am switching.
|Spring is here, no more snow pictures this week, yeah!|
Monday: Swim 15 minutes (sad, but that is my limit) in a very cold pool with broken heater! 45 minute easy bike
Tuesday: Strength workout with trainer and 5.5 mile easy run in 92F
Wednesday: 6.5 mile run/walk
Thursday: 1 hour bike in am and weights in afternoon
Friday: 1 hour spin
Saturday: 1 hour elliptical in morning and 3 mile run with puppy and O in BOB
Sunday: 9.5 mile easy run and weights
|Post Storm running, beautiful!|
Goal: Honestly nothing except get this hamstring/piriformis fixed. Continue to roll and ice like a crazy woman and swim again.
This would be Week 2 of 4 (Taper again, watch out!). Half marathon in 2 weeks and a marathon in 3 weeks J
Monday: Yoga, ? swim or bike
Tuesday: Morning spin/weights with trainer & Easy evening Run (coaching)
Wednesday: No more pre-school run time! 8 mile run with speed pick ups
Thursday: Morning Spin/Weights, Run with a friend (6 miles easy)
Friday: Spin and Core
Saturday: 6-8 Mile run with group & weights
Sunday: 12 mile run
How was your week? Have you run back to back marathons? This will be my second time, last was 6 years ago when I ran 3 weeks apart at Fargo and San Diego and thanks to extreme humidity and hot weather I had to take it easy on the 2nd. What did you learn from back to back marathons?
