I’ve just finished week 2 of my 16 week training cycle for the Chicago Marathon.
I continued my focus on cross-training and strength training this week, that gym membership certainly is coming in handy. I had a treadmill run today at the gym, after the whack-a-doo scare in our neighborhood. I slacked off on my planking, but got in at least one plank most days.
I can’t say that my diet was stellar, but it wasn’t bad. I had my Bruschetta Pasta for lunch during the week, but succumbed to ice cream at the office birthday celebration. It’s all about moderation, so I’m not going to beat myself up of it.
Chicago Marathon Training – Week 2:
Monday – 4 miles easy with stride-outs. It was cool enough to run with Anam, she was excited to go! 1:00 am plank/1:00 pm plank.
Tuesday – 30 minutes on bike, strength session focusing on bi’s, tri’s, shoulders, glutes, and quads. 1:00 am plank/1:00 pm plank.
Wednesday – 6 miles easy on the treadmill with stride-outs. 1:00 am plank/1:00 pm plank.
Thursday – 30 minutes on bike, strength session (same as Tuesday) 1:00 am plank.
Friday – 4 miles easy.
Saturday – 10 miles slow. It was hot and steamy, next time I’m going to have to get out even earlier… 7:30 just wasn’t early enough. I tried out my hydration vest. 1:00 am plank.
Sunday – Rest Day.
Total Miles = 25
I’ll be taking the next week off of blogging as I’ll be vacationing in Jamaica… will try to post some awesome photos on Instagram.
