I’m recapping the past week of training for the Chicago Marathon. This was Chicago Marathon Training – Week 16, the final week in the training cycle. Today I ran and finished the Chicago Marathon!
This week my mileage was pretty low, which was good, because I had a lot to do around the house to prepare. The saddest part of my week was finding that my gym closed… permanently. The recovery from Harvey was just too much for them.
In addition to my runs I made it to yin yoga once this week.
I kept up on my nutrition this week, even while traveling…. well, except for that small bag of Garrett’s popcorn.
