I’m recapping the past week of training for the Chicago Marathon. This was Chicago Marathon Training – Week 3 in the training cycle.
This week I cut back on my mileage a bit, and did some of it while I was on vacation in Jamaica. While I wasn’t able to run on the beach or away from the resort, I did get my miles in. It was an active vacation, so I’m counting all the swimming, snorkeling, and paddle boarding as my cross-training this week. I did not get any planking in.
I didn’t really watch what I was eating too much. We stayed at an all inclusive resort and there were plenty of healthy options that I ate… I also indulged in desserts with dinner and croissants for breakfast. I drank more than I usually did… who ccould resist a “dirty banana” or a “purple rain” on the beach… not me. I did drink plenty of water to go along with the fruity tropical drinks.
