Marathon Weekly- Race Week!

Marathon week is here and after the past 2 weeks of sickness it continues with O. Combine this with my less than wonderful training after injury and I truly am going into the race with minimal goals. I always have it in my head to run a qualifying time since I am without one for the first time in 4 years. Despite not going to Boston in 2015 and probably not in 2016 I like having that time just in case I decide to go. For me this would mean a 3:40, last year I ran a 3:31 at this marathon so who knows. The past week I took things extra easy, taper to the max! But did get in some great P90X3 workouts.

Since I never posted my plan for the week here is what I accomplished on my easy week…

  • 5 Days P90X3
  • 4 Days running:  Tues: Hills, Thurs: Intervals, Sat: Long run fail! Tried running after work and quit at 2 miles due to fatigue Sun: 8.5 Miles
  • Rehab with TENS, rolling and acupuncture
  • 3 additional core focus days

Non Fitness Accomplishments:
  • Emptied my To Do List!
  • Hair cut/color that was much needed!
  • Kindergarten info fair
  • Family pictures
  • Finish painting basement

Like I said this is marathon week! My 26th marathon and as mentioned I am treating like a goal race but with loose goals. This week I am trying to do everything right, following my pre marathon rituals and making the most of the week in hopes that the unimaginable big goal might be out there!

Fitness Goals
  • 6 Days P90X3 (Transition week so lots of easy days with yoga, pilates and stretching, perfect!)
  • 4 Days running:  Tues: Hills, Thurs: Intervals, Sat: Easy run with my training team Sun: Marathon!
  • Daily TENS and rolling. Acupuncture Monday and Thursday and graston Monday.
  • 3 additional core focus days

Non Fitness Goals:
  • Start Part 3 Project Plan
  • Pack for weekend including Cooper’s stuff on Friday
  • Write 3 blogs this week
  • Try not to be too obsessive on weather tracking!
  • No wine or dairy this week
