I’m in my 13th week of training for the Houston Marathon. Race day is 3 weeks away!! I’ve finished out my highest mileage runs and I’m headed into the taper.
It was a great week of running, kicking off with the Santa Hustle Half in Galveston. I changed around my workouts a bit so that I wasn’t running my long run on Christmas day (and ended the week with some pretty high mileage). Here is how my week played out:
Sunday – 14 miles total. 1 mile warm up, then a half-marathon in Galveston. It was challenging one with 35 “feels like temps” and 35-40 mph winds. I hope to get the recap for that race up this week.
Monday – I had 4 easy miles on the schedule, but opted to rest. My calf was acting up so I took care to do some extra foam rolling and stretching.
Tuesday – Rest.
Wednesday – 8 miles progressive (sort of…) 11:13/10:35/10:41/10:33/10:00/9:51/9:36/9:18.
Thursday – Basics Yoga class.
Friday – 8 miles steady.
Saturday – 16 miles. I was supposed to speed it up for a fast finish, but with the heat and humidity… I just didn’t have it in me and kept it at a steady pace.
Total Miles = 46
