I just finished week 8 of my 12 week training cycle for the Houston Marathon. This is the recap for my Houston Marathon Training – Week 8. There are only 4 short weeks left!
This week I got back on track, I even squeezed in a short-ish easy run in my schedule. I’ve been missing those on my 3-day a week training plan. Yin Yoga didn’t happen for me this week, but made up for it with some extra stretching and foam rolling.
At the last minute, the hubs decided to go to the deer lease. Not wanting to miss out on any fun, I scored an entry to a half marathon for Sunday in Galveston. .
My nutrition this week was ok, but could have been better. Convenience and holiday treats won out this week more than they should have, especially on Thursday when my favorite vegan food truck was in the neighborhood for dinner hours!
