Houston Marathon Training – Week 10

Chicago Marathon training - week 13

This week marks week 10 of my 12 week training cycle for the Houston Marathon is in the books.  This is the recap for my Houston Marathon Training – Week 10. I’m deep in the throws of taper, and it with the holidays it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Like last week, I had a great week for running.  I got all my miles in plus a few extra. Since I was off work, I took advantage of being home during the daylight hours and got in a few runs with Anam… I may have skipped my tempo run in exchange for an extra easy run with her.

Like last week, I neglected doing anything but run. Bad, I know… but it is what it is.

My nutrition was all over the place this week, looking back I think it was more good than bad… I hope.

    I think deep cleaning the kitchen definitely counts as cross training. lol This time of year it’s so great when you have the opportunity to run in the daylight. 🙂

    Great week of training!
    Any type of cleaning counts as cross training in my book! Whenever I have to shovel snow I also count that as cross training too lol

    It hard to not do anything else when you are training for a marathon. It seems like cross training goes on the back burner a bit. Now with all the miles in the book you can just enjoy your taper!

    Welcome to taper time. Any chores should count as double workout time. Enjoy these last two weeks and trust that training! You’ll have a great race. Happy New Year and thanks for linking!

    Good job getting those miles in!

    I haven’t been feeling well – off & on — it’s very frustrating. That coupled with the cold & snow — there just hasn’t been a whole lot of activity. But I guess that’s just what my body needs at the moment. I’m not training for anything, so it’s all good. Sort of.

      Yup, sometimes our body needs a rest. Hope you are feeling better Judy!
