Marathon Week 3 and the Rough Bike Weekend!
What a week! Wednesday I got great news from PT: my gait analysis is much improved meaning my hard work is paying off! My glutes are finally working and my core and hips are much more stable. I was much less horrified watching the video this time. I’ve also been cleared to push he speed a little, have been graduated to tougher PT exercises and cleared for some “baby” plyo work!
Monday: Easy 3.5 mile run and Piyo core, strength with trainer
Tuesday: Piyo Upper body. Evening run 6 miles hills and PT exercises
Wednesday: Piyo Core and Buns and the great PT appointment!
Thursday: Piyo Hard Core
Friday: Half Marathon (more later) PT exercises
Saturday: Bike 15 miles (cut short due to being stung by something, I’m allergic to bees so this freaked me out not knowing what might happen, luckily I was fine other than a swollen and sore ear). Strength and Piyo Core
Sunday: 5 mile run in the rain, Piyo Upper and Lower body. 20 mile bike with a family picnic (complete with the crash I managed to avoid during the sting on Saturday! Just scrapes and bruises but it was not a fun bike weekend!)

On to week 3 of marathon training, still not at the spot I hoped to be for this training cycle but happy I am improving. I beginning to accept that this Fall marathon will not be the goal race I hoped instead I can just enjoy it and throughout the training learn ways to improve my running and overall fitness (one of the reasons I made a big decision last week, more later!)
Monday: Piyo Sweat, strength with trainer
Tuesday: Piyo Core/Buns. Evening run 6 miles and PT exercises
Wednesday: Piyo Upper/Lower, Strength
Thursday: Run 7 miles. Piyo Core
Friday: Strength and 30 min elliptical
Saturday: Run 14 miles, Piyo Sweat
Sunday: Bike, Piyo Core
