Hey there and happy Monday! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving/long weekend/regular weekend!
Just wanted to share how my last week of Marathon training went, and my first week of recovery. The races themselves went GREAT and I’ll be posting full recaps soon… I’ve got a lot to say!!
My last week of training was focused on running and stretching and resting.
Monday Nov. 14 – 5.35 miles easy in the AM (5 mile run that went a little long haha)
Tuesday – Rest day
Wednesday – 3 miles easy in the AM and my last run at home with my running group! ahhh!
Well here we are. I ran my last run at home with my running group, until post-marathon. It feels like the last 16 weeks took forever and also no time at all. But I feel ready to take on the streets of Tulsa and am looking forward to a 26.5 mile party. T-4 days!! Let's do this. 👊🏻🏃🏻♀️ #run #running #instarun #instarunners #marathon #marathontraining #route66marathon #rt66run #centeroftheuniverse #runtulsa
Thursday – Rest day (this was the day we flew to Tulsa Oklahoma!
Friday – Rest day (and exploring Tulsa and the expo!)
Saturday – Route 66 5k
Sunday – Route 66 MARATHON!!
I honestly felt ready to run again on Monday but knew that was obviously not a good idea, so I told myself I had to wait until Friday to run again. I really started getting bored and feeling antsy though, so I compromised with a gym session on Thanksgiving, and my first run back on Friday! I started my runs back at 5 miles because I want to have a slightly higher weekly mileage than my normal 3, 3, 3, long run mileage. I’ll talk more about that in a later post though. Here’s last weeks recovery week!
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday – Rest days
Thursday – 30 minute BodyPump + 30 minute BodyCombat
Friday – 5 miles easy
Saturday – 5 miles easy
Sunday – BodyAttack
Have a good week guys!
