Not so Marathon Monday- Week in Review

Posted May 20 2013 7:48am

Well, looks like I am back at it again. I made the decision to run the Swan Lake Marathon in 3 weeks and started following a back to back marathon recovery/training plan. I guess we can call this Week 1 again since I have decided to run the marathon in June! Guess what, no snow this week! But record heat on Tuesday and then storms all weekend, ugh! I had my first (and only) visit with the sports doc, yes I thought it was good but he is not near what I got from the guy I used to see. So despite things being less than ideal (further and no child care) I am switching.
Spring is here, no more snow pictures this week, yeah!

Monday: Swim 15 minutes (sad, but that is my limit) in a very cold pool with broken heater! 45 minute easy bike Tuesday: Strength workout with trainer and 5.5 mile easy run in 92F Wednesday: 6.5 mile run/walk Thursday:  1 hour bike in am and weights in afternoon Friday: 1 hour spin Saturday: 1 hour elliptical in morning and 3 mile run with puppy and O in BOB Sunday: 9.5 mile easy run and weights
Post Storm running, beautiful!
Goal: Honestly nothing except get this hamstring/piriformis fixed. Continue to roll and ice like a crazy woman and swim again. This would be Week 2 of 4 (Taper again, watch out!). Half marathon in 2 weeks and a marathon in 3 weeks J
Monday: Yoga, ? swim or bike Tuesday: Morning spin/weights with trainer & Easy evening Run (coaching) Wednesday: No more pre-school run time! 8 mile run with speed pick ups Thursday: Morning Spin/Weights, Run with a friend (6 miles easy) Friday:  Spin and Core Saturday: 6-8 Mile run with group & weights Sunday: 12 mile run
How was your week? Have you run back to back marathons? This will be my second time, last was 6 years ago when I ran 3 weeks apart at Fargo and San Diego and thanks to extreme humidity and hot weather I had to take it easy on the 2nd. What did you learn from back to back marathons?
