Marathon Week 14

Posted Apr 29 2013 6:00am


Week 14 meant the first week of taper and almost race day! We had a tough week with illness for both O and I meaning easy workouts from Wednesday on. Guess what, spring is finally here and in full force, high 70s and sun this weekend was exactly what we all needed! Congrats to Ashley for finishing her marathon this weekend!

Monday: Easy 4.5 with puppy in morning and 7.5 mile hills in afternoon Tuesday: Weights with trainer and 7.5 mile run with group Wednesday: Sluggish Morning 11.4 mile Run (this was when I knew I too was getting sick) Thursday:  Afternoon weights /core + 3 mile walk with puppy and O Friday: Morning Spin and Afternoon easy 3.5 mile run to the park Saturday: 16.2 miles (so nice I finished in just shorts and a sports bra and pretty sure I blinded the cars with my winter white legs an belly!) and 1 mile walk to park Sunday: 5 mile recovery trail run and Afternoon core/strength 1st Trail Run of 2013

And what's ahead for Week 15 of marathon training? More Taper and lots of rain, yuck! More rolling and icing and pushing the weird knee pain out of my head, oh the joys of taper! How did I get this close? Under two weeks until race day!
Goal: On Sunday I will run half #2 of the year on a hilly course. I ran this 3 years ago ( first race backpost-baby ).

Monday: Yoga & 8-10 mile run with running friend who is moving to Texas this week Tuesday: Morning Spin, weights with trainer and Easy evening Run (coaching) Wednesday: Morning Run (Tempo) during preschool Thursday: Morning Spin & Afternoon weights Friday: Morning Spin and Yoga Saturday: 4-6 mile easy run Sunday: Half marathon: Goals: A) 1:35 B) 1:38 C) 1:41
