This week marks week the final week of my 12 week training cycle for the Houston Marathon is in the books. This is the recap for my Houston Marathon Training – Race Week!
I took tapering to a whole new level this week! I didn’t do much of anything activity wise, I did get in the runs in. My body really wanted sleep… so, I woke up later/went to bed earlier this week. Foam rolling happened every evening before bed.
I was careful with my nutrition choices this week. I made a kale salad and my black eyed pea and barley soup to eat during the week. Keeping my meals around race day tried and true.
Saturday was expo day and I had so much fun! In addition to meeting some of my TROT Team, I also saw Meb and Carl Lewis. Sunday was race day… I’ll have my race report out for next week. I had a blast during the race and even managed a PR!
