I’m recapping the past week of training for the Chicago Marathon. This was Chicago Marathon Training – Week 14 in the training cycle. In 2 short weeks, I’ll be running the streets of Chicago!
This week I started my taper, and while I was still waking up tired I remedied that Saturday night, clocking 13 hours of sound sleep.
I got to the gym once this week for a strength session and made it to yin yoga twice this week!
I continued eating pretty good this week… making another large batch of Roasted Broccoli, Sweet Potato, and Chickpea Salad for lunch. This week I added in some baked tofu for extra protein.
Chicago Marathon Training – Week 14:
Monday – 4 easy miles treadmill miles thanks to the thunderstorm that popped up on my way home from work.
Tuesday – Strength training & Yin yoga.
Wednesday – 8 miles. This was supposed to have 6 miles at a tempo effort, but the heat and humidity caught up with me and it was just a train wreck of a run. I did manage to complete the 8 miles, but it was not pretty.
Thursday – Yin yoga.
Friday – 6 miles easy. After Wednesday’s run, I was happy that this was a great run!
Saturday – 10 miles. Last double digit run before Chicago!
Sunday – Rest.
Total Miles = 28
