Happy Marathon Monday!
Well, I survived my first week of the taper. It wasn’t bad. I embraced it fully to let my blister heal and my muscles recover from 2 weeks of races and a 20 miler. I did have my first marathon disaster dream the other night. In it, the race was timed by your own Garmin. Mine couldn’t find a satellite at the starting line! Finally after 20 minutes it did and I was able to start. I woke up sweating and in a panic. So bizarre!
The big drama from this week in training continues to be my foot blister situation. Watch this short vlog for all the details!
Here’s how the week went in workouts:
Monday: 60 minute bike trainer + total body strength
Tuesday: 3 mile easy (ha. ha.) double stroller run + yoga
Wednesday: 7 mile speed: 1 mile warm. 4×1600 @ 7:19 with 800 jogs. 1 mile cool + total body strength
Thursday: 2.5 mile easy run + yoga
Friday: 12 mile easy run
Saturday: SurfSet Fitness class (more to come on that later this week!)
13 days till VCM!!!
