I just finished week 4 of my 12 week training cycle for the Houston Marathon. This is the recap for my Houston Marathon Training – Week 4.
This week I continued my early morning workouts and Yin Yoga one night this week. Other than workouts, my week was pretty quiet. The hubs came down with a serious cold and I spent a lot of time washing my hands and disenfecting everything he touched… colds – ain’t nobody got time for that!
Nutrition this week was good… I continued cooking my way through Run Fast Eat Slow with Moroccan Lentil Salad for lunch during the week. After my long tempo run on Thursday I definately splurged with breakfast tacos from Torcheys.
Houston Marathon Training – Week 4
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – 1 mile w/up & c/down, 3×1600.
Wednesday – Strength conditioning – upper body & 30 minutes biking + Yin Yoga
Thursday – 10 mile tempo run.
Friday – Strength conditioning – legs and glutes & 30 minutes biking.
Saturday – 16 mile long run.
Sunday – Rest. Today I noticed my knees hurt while I was out running errands. I had a lot of errands and at one point I noticed I was limping pretty bad. With this development, I’ve decided to take next week off to rest, stretch and baby those knees.
Total Miles = 30
