Monday: Morning 45 minutes bike and afternoon strength
Tuesday: Evening run coaching 6.5 miles hills
Wednesday: Morning 45 minutes bike, Strength with trainer
Thursday: Sleep! And 7.5 mile run afternoon, perfect weather 1:02:03
Friday: Morning 10 mile run and afternoon core/strength
Saturday: Work then BBQ with my run group. Day off to relax
Sunday: 11 mile run 1:28:33 and afternoon core/strength

Week 18 and long anticipated marathon week has arrived! Yikes, here I sit stalking and obsessing over the weather highs 50/lows upper 30s sounds pretty good to me!

Monday: Not sure, pilates, yoga, bike. All I know is no running. Seeing sports chiro today
Tuesday: Evening run coaching
Wednesday: 13+ hours at work (yep I already know), hoping for a core workout at some point
Thursday: Morning easy 3-4 mile run
Friday: Morning bike

  1. Good luck on your marathon!! It sounds like the weather will be perfect for you!

    My favorite thing about fall is running, of course. :) I love the cooler mornings and fall racing. I ran a half marathon over the weekend and it was beautiful weather here too.

  2. Good luck! I have a marathon the same day and I do not think my running last week was quite as diligent as yours; I certainly let the 'taper' get to me and my motivation was lacking. I am ready for this race to be over!

  4. I am doing a weekly countdown to my "big race" too - which is just a 5K but it's my first race post-baby so it seems like a big deal. Plus, it's a 5K within a marathon relay so I don't want to let my team down. My running buddy is doing a 10K leg and she wants to go for a 5 miler today... Eek! I haven't run that far in almost a year!

  6. This weekend I wasn't training, I was RACING! My recap is on the blog today if you are interested. My favorite thing about fall is the changing leaves. They are such brilliant, beautiful colors. I just love looking at them!
