Marathon Training: Week 2 and Piyo
Week 2 of marathon training (17 to go!) and the heat is here. I had forgotten how tough hot, humid running was until Saturday. A lot of changes to my week thanks to work and rain (lots of it). My Piyo DVDs came Friday and even though I had planned to start next week I couldn’t wait. Started Shakeology for my afternoon snack Friday too. So how did it go…
Monday: 15 min elliptical warm up and Jillian Michaels 6 week 6 pack, strength and PT exercises
Tuesday: Morning 20 min yoga and Evening run 5 hilly miles and PT exercises
Wednesday: Strength, bike, PT exercises
Thursday: Run (cut short at 1 mile due to leg ache) Jillian Michaels instead, PT exercises
Friday: 6 mile run with intervals, Piyo Core, PT exercises
Saturday: 10 Mile trail race (cancelled due to flooding L ) so ran 10 with friends, strength and Piyo Fundamentals and PT exercises
Sunday: Piyo lower body before work and 10 mile bike after work (had to get the new biKe out), PT exercises
What's the plan for this week? More low run miles, focus on strength, core and flexibility. Even better a short work week!
Monday: Easy 3 mile run and Piyo core, strength with trainer
Tuesday: Piyo Upper body. Evening run 5 miles and PT exercises
Wednesday: Piyo, PT appointment for redoing my gait eval, let’s hope for improvement!
Thursday: Early work day. Piyo
Friday: Half Marathon! PT exercises
Saturday: Bike and Strength, Piyo
Sunday: Run, Piyo
I can't believe I am admitting this to so many people because I usually don't jump on every fad (okay never!) but so far 4 days into Shakeology and I have cut down my afternoon carb cravings and my stomach bloat is gone. After my bike yesterday I was struggling since it had been hours since lunch. A quick shake saved me! Whereas before I would have grabbed every carb in site and basically ate 2 meals worth in 5 minutes.
Who else is running a 4th of July race? Have a great week!
