I’ve just completed week 3 of my 12 week training cycle for the Houston Marathon. This is the recap for my Houston Marathon Training – Week 3.
I ended my love affair with my snooze button this week. It was a hard break-up, but it needed to come to an end. As a result, I made it to all my early morning workouts and even got into Yin Yoga one night this week. This made me really happy.
Other than workouts, my week was pretty quiet. I made getting to bed on time a priority so that I get the appropriate amount of zzz’s for those 4am wake-up calls.
Nutrition this week was good, but could have been better. My new gym is just down the street from Torchy’s Tacos. I may have forgotten my breakfast a couple of times this week accidentally on purpose so I could drop in for some breakfast tacos… opps!
