Marathon Weekly: Taper Time!
Week 15 and the peak of marathon training! I loved this week for that but it was also the week of pure craziness and new beginnings. As I have mentioned before Morgan was diagnosed with osteosarcoma earlier this month, we met with the oncology vet on Monday and as Morgan underwent a bone biopsy on Tuesday we found out the damage was extensive leading to a fast forward on amputation by 10 days. SO Wednesday he became a 3 legged pup, but is doing great (follow his journey at Morgan Runs). He came one Thursday night, meaning lack of sleep and a long Friday that ended in a sick kiddo who I finally brought in on Sunday and O has strep!
Monday: Morning run with a new running friend 7.5 miles and afternoon run/walk with Matt 5 miles strength with trainer
Tuesday: Evening run coaching 6 miles hills
Wednesday: Strength and 30 min elliptical
Thursday: Morning intervals 6.5 miles 45:00 Afternoon run (break between work and meeting) 4.25 miles speedwork
Saturday: 22.25 miles 3:16:21
Sunday: 5.5 mile easy recovery run ½ mile walk with Morgan and yoga
Week 16 and taper time! Watch out, I seriously hate this time, give me high mileage any day.
Monday: Early work day so afternoon stength
Tuesday: Spin in morning and Evening run coaching
Wednesday: Morning run, Strength with trainer
Thursday: Morning spin and evening run
Saturday: 10K Race + 10 miles on own
Sunday: Volunteer at TCM Medical Tent, so I hope I don’t see anyone I know!
