Marathon weekly! Updates and taper

What a crazy week! I am officially in taper mode so watch out! I feel like this training just started and now I’m less than 3 weeks from my 27th marathon! I think a lot is due to finally getting good weather. I just had my highest mileage week in over 6 months which seems odd considering it was under 50 miles!
This was Friday!
Monday: Lift chest/back/abs
Tuesday: 5.5 mile hill run
Wednesday: 7 mile interval run and lift arms/abs
Thursday: 9 mile (7 mile tempo 7:30 pace)
Friday: P90X Cardio X and abs
Saturday: 22 miles at 8:40 pace
Sunday: 4 miles easy with Cooper and MRTT friends

2 days later on Sunday!
Like I mentioned on Friday my hamstring was acting up but luckily was better thanks to lots of rolling. Let’s just hope this was it. Mentally I can’t handle any issues during taper! Hoping for continued good weather and running.

Monday: Lift legs/back/abs
Tuesday: Intervals: 7x800m at 6:30 pace
Wednesday: Kickboxing and lift arms/abs
Thursday: 6 miles (4 mile tempo 7:15 pace)
Friday: P90X Cardio X and chest/back/abs
Saturday: 16 miles
Sunday: Easy run and yoga

My goals this week are to…
  1. Get in all workouts
  2. Focus on nutrition- eat only when hungry!
  3. Foam roll daily
  4. Be in bed at 9pm


How was your week? What goals do you have this week?
