This week marks week 11 of my 12 week training cycle for the Houston Marathon is in the books. This is the recap for my Houston Marathon Training – Week 11. 7 days until race day!
This week I returned to work from a little break between the holidays. We had some cold weather for our part of the nation, and it was very hard to get out of my warm bed. I have to admit, the warmth of the bed won out over the 4am wake up call a few days. So, I didn’t get cross-training in, but I managed to get in all my runs.
I dialed it in on my nutrition this week. For lunches I made a delicious winter harvest salad (recipe coming tomorrow), and Cauliflower Korma too!
I also lost a ton of weight this week… on my head. Saturday afternoon I went to the hairdresser and decided to do something drastic. I went shorter and darker!
