Last week was my final week of training before running the Houston Marathon.
Today, I set out to accomplish that big scary goal that I had set out to do a year ago – and I finished! I’ll be posting a recap of the race in the upcoming week… stay tuned!
This week was an easy week for me, as I finished out my taper.
Sunday – 6 miles easy
Monday – 8 x 2 min “fast”… a little speedwork to shock my legs.
Tuesday – Yin Yoga. I had never been to a yin yoga class and was hoping this would help to get me loosened up. The instructor described this as a class that you needed to get comfortable being uncomfortable. It was tough… a great class for mental focus! That evening I started feeling a little “off”
Wednesday – 3 miles easy… was on the struggle bus the entire time with this run. That morning I had decided my “off” feeling from the night before was a head cold…. boo!
Thursday – Rest. I hydrated like a boss between water and “sick” tea, trying to kick the cold to the curb.
Friday – Rest…. more of Thursday’s hydration exercise.
Saturday – ABB 5k … run at easy effort.
Total Miles = 17
