It’s here – the last marathon Monday in training. Eeeekkkk! It’s been a crazy, crazy week to say the least.
I’m not even sure where to begin. Veteran marathoners told me the taper will mess with your mind. It has and then some! My blister issues have gone away but now I am dealing with another issue. My right foot is not feeling right. It feels fine until I’m running. I wouldn’t call it pain, just noticeable and different. My gait is off because of it. I’ve been trying to take it easy but mind keeps telling me – you need to run! You’re running a marathon soon! When I have been running, I feel slow like molasses. On top of the foot issues, we’ve also been traveling this week. Different routines, food and terrain have all been messing with my head and body!
Here’s how the week looked in workouts:
Monday: 60 minute bike trainer + total body strength
Tuesday: Easy 5 miles + yoga
Wednesday: 50 minute bike trainer + total body strength + yoga
Thursday: Easy 3 mile run
Friday: Easy 4 mile run
Saturday: 8 mile run + yoga
6 days to VCM!
