I am in my 12th week of training for the Houston Half and my 1st week of training for the Houston Marathon. While I have 2 training plans, I’m planning to mostly follow the half plan until the full plan catches up.
This week, coming off the fatigue I was feeling, I combined the two plans. The weekday runs were kept low and easy and I kept up with my weekend longer mileage. Speaking of the fatigue, my test results came back showing that I was low in iron and vitamin d. I started a multi-vitamin along with iron. I hope to feel back to normal soon!
Here’s how my week shook out:
Sunday – 13 miles easy. Which was anything but easy. It was hot and I felt super sluggish, but I powered through and got it done. Once I got home, I pretty much slept the day away!
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – 4 miles easy with Anam & body weight exercises
Wednesday – Rest
Thursday – 4 miles easy with Sorcha & body weight exercises
Friday – Rest
Saturday – 6 miles easy… and they felt east, thanks to a footprint that came through, temps in the 60s, felt so good!
Total Miles = 27
